Knowing a defeat will compound their relegation woes, tail-enders Bay United will leave no stone unturned when they meet Kaizer Chiefs at Port Elizabeth Stadium tonight at 7.30pm.

This was a strong message from Vuyo Mvoko, United's head of communication, who added any game from now onwards will be treated like a cup final.

Mvoko believes Chiefs were lucky to draw with them in the first round, after they won a late penalty decision.

"We are fully prepared for this match and will go for broke to ensure that the three points remain in our bag," said Mvoko.

United have a clean bill of health.

Bobby Motaung, Chiefs' team manager, expects United to come at them, "but our players have vowed to fight to the bitter end to emerge victorious''.

Good new for Amakhosi supporters is that Bafana Bafana midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala and playmaker Tinsahe Nengomashe are back to strengthen the team.
