Chippa United coach, Morgan Mammila, believes that the Nedbank Cup round of 16 match against Mpheni Home Defenders is a must-win.
Chilli Boys beat Polokwane City 3-1 in the Nedbank Cup round of 32 with Mpheni Home Defenders beating Clarewood 3-0.
“Let’s be honest, this is a good draw for Chippa United Football Club,” says Mammila.
“Without taking anything away from Mpheni Home Defenders, they are a good team and are second on the log in the ABC Motsepe League.
They’ve won their match [against Clarewood] in the last 32 and we will respect them like any other team. But we are playing at home so, we don’t have any excuse not to win this match for our beloved supporters.
“We will go out with the full squad. Hopefully, we will win and progress to the quarterfinals. We have to win.”
Last season Chippa United was knocked out of the Nedbank Cup last 32 by Richards Bay.
