The Dube Birds have suffered defeat in all of their last
three Premiership encounters to leave themselves just one point clear of the
relegation zone with 10 games remaining this season.
AmaTuks, meanwhile, are undefeated in their last six league
matches, a run that stretches back to the beginning of December last year,
although they managed wins in only two of those, while they most recently
played out a 1-1 draw at Free State Stars.
Those results have left Sammy Troughton's men 10th in the
standings, although they too are not yet out the woods as they sit just five
points clear of the bottom two, meaning the cup will come as a welcome
Tuks will also have to do without the services of Siyabonga
Ngubane, who was red carded in the draw against Ea Lla Koto after picking up a
second booking, meaning he will be suspended for this week's Ke Yona clash.
Swallows, meanwhile, have reported no fresh injury concerns
ahead of the tie, and also have a clean suspension list; affording head coach
Fani Madida a full squad to choose from.
Kick-off is at 19:30 on Wednesday, February 25.
