"Marumo Gallants might give us a game, but we will win the cup.

"It doesn't matter if they have our former player Dan Malesela at the helm, as we will teach him a lesson.

"The football he is playing at Gallants he learned from us.

"But one thing I can tell you is it's going to be a good match, as you know Dan knows how to play football.

"I know they are the defending champions, but still we are going to win the Nedbank Cup.

"I always predicted Marumo to reach the final because I know they will give us a good game."
