Black Aces to paint Jo'burg blue and white


Aces PRO Thabiso ‘T-Bone’ Moroape tells that his team has organised 128 buses to ferry their supporters free of charge from Mpumalanga to Gauteng on Saturday, promising to outnumber their counterparts on the stands and outplay them on the field.

“Mpumalanga is one of the provinces that does not have a team playing in the PSL, but this time we want to give them a team that will make the people of Mpumalanga very proud.

“We have organised 128 buses for our fans and have urged them to buy tickets for the match on Saturday in time.

“We want to throw down a challenge to Sundowns not only on the field of play, but also in the stands. We know it’s not going to be easy for us, but our big advantage is that we know them better than they know us.

“We are not going to be fooled by their result against Free State Stars on Sunday, but will approach the game with great determination to win the final.”

Moroape said their preparations for Saturday are presently going well with no injuries in their camp.

Meanwhile, Sundowns’ communication manager Mahlatse Mphahlela says that they have already put behind them their disappointing weekend result against Free State Stars.

“It’s going to be different ball game on Saturday. This is a cup final and there is no way that we will surrender it to Mpumalanga Black Aces.”

The Brazilians are expected to welcome back Vuyo Mere, Lerato Chabangu, Brian Baloyi and Surprise Moriri, who were all missing from their last Absa Premiership match, but defender Mbulelo Mabizela has been ruled out of action for the rest of the season.
