Polokwane - Ahead of the Nedbank Cup quarter-final draw, National First Division outfit Baroka FC CEO Morgan Mammila admits that they wish not to be drawn against Mamelodi Sundowns or Orlando Pirates.

The quarter-final draw of the Ke Yona competition will be conducted at the SuperSport studios in Randburg and it will commence at 19:00 on Thursday, April 7.

The Polokwane based side have already eliminated two top flight teams, Chippa United and Golden Arrows, so  far on their Cup journey and Mammila is optimistic that their fairytale story can continue if they avoid the big guns.

"Honestly I don't wish to play Pirates or Sundowns now," laughed Mammila

"No not now, maybe in the later stages of the tournament but now we still want to enjoy ourselves.

"I want to play the likes of SuperSport United or Free State Stars, even Wits as well.

"There I know that we'll have a good chance of winning and go further."
