AmaZulu defender Tamsanqa Teyise says he is looking forward to playing homeboys Tembu Royal FC in the Nedbank Cup last 32, but told AmaZulufc.net that he has words of caution for his teammates.
The South African version of the FA Cup of English football saw AmaZulu drawn at home to the Eastern Cape-based minnows, who ply their trade in the third division.
“It won’t be an easy game for us. We don’t know them at all but they may know us,” Teyise said.
“What I can say is that since we’re playing at home we must not let them off easily, but we must use that to our advantage.
“We must respect them as a team, but at the end of the day we must make sure we make it to the next round.”
The 25 year old defender has clashed with Royals in the past while on the books of another third division side called Manchester United.
“They should still be a strong team and being from the Eastern Cape they will be coming to Durban knowing that the Nedbank Cup is a big tournament, in which smaller teams are known to cause upsets.
“At least I can point that out to my teammates,” said Teyise.
