SuperSport United forward Sibusiso Zuma is ecstatic ahead of the big Tshwane derby that takes place in Soweto this weekend.
The two giants lock horns in the 2012 Nedbank Cup final at Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Kick off is scheduled for 3pm.
“Rhee,” as he is affectionately called by his teammates, told the SuperSport United website after the Thursday training session that he wants to score against Mamelodi Sundowns again.
“I’m enjoying myself now that I have started scoring goals. I really want to score again on Saturday if I get a chance.
This is a Cup match, so whoever gets the finishing right stands a chance of winning the Cup tournament. Everything looks good and we are focusing on the big match. We certainly want to make history on Saturday,” said the former Sundowns striker.
Zuma scored a late goal when Matsatsantsa narrowly beat Sundowns 1-0 at Lucas Moripe Stadium in a league clash recently.
“I have scored two goals in the league and one in a Cup match. My fitness is on the right level and I really want to increase the tally come Saturday,” he said.
Although Zuma is positive on the weekend Cup clash, he emphasized that Sundowns won convincingly until they reached the final.
“We are cautious about our opponents; they have quality players and deserved to be in the final. They won this Cup a few seasons ago but it is not going to be an easy one playing against us,” Zuma concluded.
A victory for Matsatsantsa will mark Coach Gavin Hunt’s first ever Cup competition after joining the Tshwane based side five seasons ago.
Matsatsantsa will conduct their last training session at the Cup final venue on Friday afternoon.
The tickets for the Cup final can be purchased at Compu-ticket and Shoprite Checkers countrywide. Prices are R40 for adults and R10 for children aged 3 – 12 years respectively. Suite tickets and hospitality packages can be purchased through the Stadium.
