DURBAN - Ubuntu Cape Town FC coach Casey Prince wants to play another Premier Soccer League (PSL) side in the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup.
Ubuntu are enjoying a giant-killing status in this year’s edition of the Nedbank Cup.
They booked their place in the last eight of the Nedbank Cup after beating AmaZulu 3-2 at King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi on Friday.
Their astonishing victory against Usuthu came after defeating Polokwane City in the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup.
Speaking after the match, Prince stated that his desire is to come up against another PSL side. The draw will take place on Thursday in Cape Town.
“Yes I would love to face another PSL team. We've got to play these NFD teams all the time and I really don’t want to play them again. I know that there still ABC Motsepe League teams involved in the competition.
“I’ve joked with Benni that maybe we get to face off, we’ve never lost to Cape Town City in friendly match.
“Maybe we get to play the Cape Town derby. I would actually prefer a PSL team and it is what the event is about. Smaller clubs getting to play the big boys. It allows us to be free.
“There’s no fear and there’s no pressure on us. Our advantage over our opponents is that we don’t have pressure and they are the ones who have all the pressure,” Prince elaborated.
Ubuntu are fighting for their lives in the NFD. They are languishing 12th on the log with 24 points after 23 matches.
“We didn’t want to sit back, we wanted to attack and those two goals in the first half gave us confidence and the belief that we can win this game. Our emphasis at half time was that the first five minutes we going to be important.
“We didn’t want concede in the first five minutes. To score the goal in the first five minutes was huge for us,” Prince explained.
