The Mighty Buccaneers who reached the final of the 2013 MTN8 only to lose to Platinum Stars on penalties, will be looking to lift the 2014 instalment of the competition but first, Vladimir Vermezovic and his charges have a tough assignment in the form of Wits to deal with.
Speaking at the draw Assistant Coach Eric Tinkler said: “This is going to be a tough match against a well organised outfit. They (Wits) have strengthened their team this season so we can expect a different proposition to that we faced in May but we look forward to a great game.”
The last time Pirates and Wits met in a cup competition was in the final of the 2014 Nedbank Cup in May where Pirates won the encounter 3-1.
The MTN8 Cup dates, times & venues will be released by the league at a later stage.
