TRZ not down yet

The odds may be stacked against Thanda Royal Zulu in the second leg of the National First Division promotion playoffs tomorrow but TRZ player James Madidilane believes experience will see them through in this dogfight.

Amabhubesi are under pressure going to Cape Town after a scoreless draw with FC Cape Town in the first leg in Durban on Sunday.

Their failure to find the net at home could come back to haunt them at Vygieskraal Stadium, the venue for tomorrow's match that kicks off at 7.30pm.

But Madidilane is encouraged by the fact that they did not concede at home.

"Though we wanted to score a goal or two at home, it was also important that we did not allow them to score," he told Sowetan yesterday.

"I'm not undermining FC Cape Town because they are a damn good team, but we have enough experience in the team that can ensure that we make a quick return to the elite league."

Mpumalanga Black Aces host Carara Kicks at Ackerville Stadium in another return leg at 7.30pm tomorrow.

The two sides played to a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Welkom on Sunday.
