Chiefs to face ABC Minnows

The draw for the 2017 Nedbank Cup second round took place at the SuperSport studios this evening where Kaizer Chiefs were drawn against ABC Motsepe side, Acornbush United.

The second round of the Ke Yona Cup represents the last-16 stage of the competition and all ties are scheduled to be played from 5-9 April.

The Mbombela based-side’s win over Cape Town City sees the lower league side reaching the round of 16 for the first time in their history.

Amakhosi midfielder, George Lebese expressed his satisfaction with the draw, however was quick to warn against complacency and not to undermine their opponents.

“We’re happy with the draw to be honest,” says Lebese.

“Whether we get a PSL side or a team from the lower divisions doesn’t really matter, because when you play in a Cup game anything can happen. From what I know about them is that they’re a good team in the ABC Motsepe league and we should approach the game with caution and give it our all to progress to the next stage.”

The date and venue of the match will be communicated by the PSL Cup committee at a later stage.
