Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson says Baroka have a Nedbank Cup Juju man


Bakgaga advanced to the semi-finals of the event last year, bowing out to eventual champions SuperSport United with a 2-0 defeat.

The Absa Premiership strugglers also memorably saw off Moroka Swallows and Kaizer Chiefs to reach the last-four of the competition six years ago.

Kick-off is at 19h30, with Dikwena looking to bounce back from a 2-0 league loss to Bidvest Wits this past Saturday.

Johnson's men have a busy schedule, as they will afterward fly to Ivory Coast for a CAF Confederation Cup clash with AS Tanda on the weekend.

"The games are coming thick and fast now. We play every 48 hours so we need to pick up again on Tuesday and fly to Ivory Coast to play AS Tanda in the [CAF] Confed Cup and come back play Cape Town City. It’s back-to-back games. This is what we like as coaches. It’s good for players that they play every week," Johnson told his club's website.

"Baroka, it’s a very big game for me. Nedbank Cup, we played the final before. We are playing against a team that is known to be... I think they have a Nedbank Cup Juju man. We have got our work cut out for us but we have to do our best. We will fight as much as we can in order to go through to the next round."

Regarding the defeat at title contenders Wits, he added: "We are not over unhappy because we lost. When you look at it from an analytical point of view, Wits are [now Cape Town City] the top team on the log. We played a good a game against a top team."
