Mark Mayambela welcomes Kaizer Chiefs draw for Chippa United in Nedbank Cup


The Chilli Boys have been pitted against Amakhosi after beating Bidvest Wits 5-3 in a penalty shootout in Johannesburg on Saturday following a 4-4 draw after 120 minutes of football.

The Glamour Boys advanced to the semifinals for the second season in a row after beating Cape Town City 2-0 in Mbombela on Sunday afternoon.

Mayambela believes it would have been ideal to meet Kaizer Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup final.

"It would have been ideal to play Kaizer Chiefs in the final," Mayambela tells

"We welcome the draw even though Chiefs are not an easy team to play against. It will be a difficult game but we are up for it."

Chippa are expected to switch their focus to the league game this weekend when they visit AmaZulu in Durban. Clinton Larsen's side are in a desperate situation with the relegation axe hanging over their head.
