AmaZulu Reserves open their DSTV Diski Challenge Rewired campaign with a tricky bout against next door neighbours Lamontville Golden Arrows at the Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday morning (10am).
Coach Sboniso “Nini” Vilakazi says his charges are raring to open the all new competition against Abafana Bes’thende.
“It is good, one has to say, after a long waiting period the boys are excited to compete again. The most important thing is that we open with the KZN Derby.”
“You know the story. We have been waiting quite a long period, but the most important thing in terms of preparations, we have prepared very well.”
“The boys are looking forward to the first game. It is going to be a very tough one because we have been out for quite a long time, but the preparation is going well,” said Vilakazi.
Vilakazi’s men had already got the better of their counterparts when they met early in the Diski Challenge with a 4-2 score-line, before the PSL took the decision to suspend the Multichoice Disk Challenge on 07 January 2021.
The DStv Diski Challenge is divided into two streams. For the 38 year old former KZN Academy coach, the mission is clear, to top their stream and advance to the semi-finals.
AmaZulu FC, Cape Town City, Chippa United, Lamontville Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United, TS Galaxy, Supersport United, and Stellenbosch FC.
Orlando Pirates, Tshakhuma FC, Swallows FC, Mamelodi Sundowns, Black Leopards, Bloemfontein Celtic, Kaizer Chiefs, Baroka FC.
The two top teams from each stream at the end of the group stage phases will go onto the semi-finals of the knockout phase.Share
