Utility defender Tamsanqa Teyise is hopeful his dream of playing in a cup final is one step close to becoming a reality after AmaZulu were drawn against Supersport United in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals on Monday.
The 25 year old former SAP Callies man who represented Usuthu at the draw in Melrose Arc in Johannesburg is positive that AmaZulu have the goods to deliver against United.
“I’m positive we got a good draw, even though they will be at home. Anything can happen now, and at least it’s something we’ve been expecting.
“When I think about it, I see a good chance of reaching the final if we play according to our strengths,” said Teyise.
Fellow defensive partner, Carlington Nyadombo whose header against Santos sent Usuthu flying into the semis is equally elated with the draw.
“I know Supersport is one of the good teams in the league and can be a very consistent team. They might have the home advantage but with us focused on our own abilities as a team we can beat them.
“We played them a couple of weeks ago in the league and won, so we’re very much capable of beating them,” said Nyadombo.
‘Rhino’ also told AmaZulufc.net he was excited to see his goal send his side marching towards the semis against Santos in front of thousands of approving fans at the Princess Magogo stadium.
“I hope to see score more goals in future but at the moment the next test is Supersport. At least if we beat them we know it will give us a chance to see how good we are because we beat Ajax, Spurs, and Santos who are all big teams by their standards,” said the 27 year old.
The other semi-final match will see Free State Stars taking on Mamelodi Sundowns at home. The matches will be played between 4, 5 May 2012 on venues which are yet to be announced by the PSL.
