Match Preview: Real Kings v Bidvest Wits


Tonight see the Nedbank Cup Quarterfinal match between the NFD side Kings v the PSL title chasing Wits at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium, Clermont Township, KZN.

Both sides come from commendable wins in their respective leagues and thus the mood and energy will be high for this Ke Yona spectacle.

The FARPost TSG will dissect the chances of Kings ahead of this clash.

1. Diluted experience

Kings have been built from an amalgamation of Royal Eagles and Kings players and this union has manifested itself in an arrangement that saw the likes of experienced campaigners in Jabulani Manqele, Diego Brown and Moeketsi Sekola giving the Durbanites a respectable flavour of decent experience. All these legends of the NFD have character, zeal and the technical proficiency to harm Wits at any given stanza of the match.

2. The Coach

Michael Lukhubeni is a winning, resilient and thoroughly meticulous technician. He has the ability to galvanize his troops, foster the meaningful solidarity and entrench a fearless mantra when required.

Lukhubeni has demonstrated while assisting Chippa United and Steenberg United to win promotion to the NFD, that he can rotate his squad and apply a 1-4-4-2 or 1-4-3-3 attacking approach to suit the occasion and the conditions as demanded by the tactical outlay.

3. Mam’Mkhize stroke

Even though they campaign in the lower division of South Africa, Kings are bankrolled by a lady tycoon, Shauwn Mpisane. Mpisane pride herself on a hands on approach and a
professional conduct, thus expect the boys to be fired up and ready to fight tooth and nails for the bonus at hand.

4. Conclusion

Last years edition of this competition provided a dramatic finish with TS Galaxy shocking Kaizer Chiefs, therefore Kings will be licking their wounds as Wits tantalizingly descend in the Kingdom of the Zulus.

*Kick off is at 20:00.
