Siyabonga Nkosi represented the Amakhosi at the draw on Monday, 7 October 2013, was cautiously optimistic about the trip to Qwaqwa;
“Playing FS Stars in their own backyard is not going to be easy. They are resilient when they play at home. We will have to dig deep to beat them in Qwaqwa,” said the confident Nkosi.
The last time Chiefs visited Qwaqwa, was in the 2012 – 2013 Premiership game at the Charles Mopeli Stadium in Phuthaditjaba in September 2012.
“We are capable of beating them to reach the semifinals. We played 0 – 0 against them the last time we played them in the 1st round of the league fixture last season. The conditions were not conducive that day. We hope that we will play in better conditions this time,” concluded Nkosi.
