Nedbank Cup Last 16 Draw – BIDVEST WITS TO TAKE ON JOMO COSMOS

The Nedbank Cup last 16 draw took place yesterday, 16 March, at Supersport Studio 6 in Randburg.

Bidvest Wits will be going to Makhulong Stadium to take on Jomo Cosmos in what promises to be a great display of South African football.

We spoke to Siboniso Gaxa to get his thoughts on the draw. “We are playing a quality team, a well run team, it will definitely be tough for both teams – cup games are never easy. We are looking forward to the challenge as always. It will be a game won by hard work and what you bring to the pitch on the day.”

The last 32 draw produced only two clashes involving Premier Division teams, Free State Stars were drawn against Highlands Park while Golden Arrows takes on Maritzburg United in the KZN derby.

“Football tests your mentality, your readiness. This is one of those games where you have to be motivated. I think it will come down to how we come to the match on the day. We need to be motivated on the day, we need to be hungry on the day. Our readiness, our toughness will be a central point going forward,” said Gaxa.

That is exactly the Bidvest Wits side we will be looking forward to witnessing against Cosmos – hungry, motivated and ready.

The matches will be played between April 5-9 with exact details to be announced by the PSL in due course.
