Cape Town - Ahead of Kaizer Chiefs' clash with Acornbush United in the Nedbank Cup Last-16, former defender Dominic Isaacs says the club must learn from the 2-1 defeat to Baroka in 2011.

The 34-year-old told the club's official website, "It was one of the biggest shocks of my career. We prepared for that match like any other. It was one of those days. We dominated the game, getting numerous chances, but they defended very well.

"We were all professionals, never wanting to take it lightly against any team. Although we did know that with a team like Baroka, we needed to score one or two goals early on, to not give them an opportunity.

“It was a horrible feeling when we heard the final whistle. We realised that there was nothing we could do anymore.

"It was very quiet in the bus and some players didn’t even eat dinner. It was a terrible moment. This experience shows that one should always be vigilant."

Sunday's action gets underway from 15:00 at the Kabokweni Stadium in the Mpumalanga province.

United earned their place in the second round of the competition with a stunning 1-0 win over top flight side Cape Town City on March 12. It was a massive statement for the Mpumalanga side on their debut in the Nedbank Cup proper.

As for Chiefs, a comfortable 3-0 away win over First Division side Stellenbosch FC on March 11 saw them ease into the last 16 of the competition.
