Lolo also gave his toughts on the upcoming Nedbank Cup semi-final clash with SuperSport. He stressed that they would be taking it one game at time.

"Right now we have a league match that we need to focus on and get positive results away from home, come weekend we will be guns blazing to take on United at home and proceed to the finals.
