With Motsepe Foundation Championship action being put on hold in the interim, Cape Town Spurs will now shift their attention to the Nedbank Cup where they will face Sekhukhune United in the Round of 16.
The Urban Warriors reached the Round of 16 courtesy of a resounding 3-0 win over Baroka on February 10, as goals from Therlo Moosa, Chumani Butsaka and Colin Ryan ensured the club’s place in the next round.
As for Sekhukhune United, Babina Noko swept Liver Brothers aside in a 6-0 win at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on the 8th of February. Liver Brothers was the lowest ranked team in the tournament as they currently ply their trade in the SAB League, South Africa’s fourth division.
Now though, Spurs and Sekhukhune met on two occasions in the past, which came in the 2020/21 league campaign.
The two sides met for the first time on the 13th February 2021, as Babina Noko bagged maximum points in a 4-1 win at the DHL Stadium. While Ashley Cupido gave Spurs the lead in the 6th minute, efforts from Yusuf Maart, Siyabulela Shai, Thabang Sibanyoni and Prince Nxumalo thereafter granted the visitors an emphatic win.
In the return leg, the two sides took to the Makhulong Stadium on the 11th April 2021, as Spurs recorded a slender 1-0 win. Rudolph Kgaswane’s goal in the 71st minute was enough for the Warriors to walk away with all three points.
