Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town striker Thabiso Nkoana says his young team-mates need to show great maturity against Mamelodi Sundowns if they are to stand any chance of clinching the Nedbank Cup title on Saturday.

The youthful Urban Warriors are set to square-off against Sundowns in the Ke Yona final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth this weekend.
Nkoana, on loan from SuperSport United, has been among the top marksmen at Ajax with eight goals, one less than top scorer Tashreeq Morris, and the 22-year-old will now be looking to help end a seven year cup drought, with the club having last captured silverware in 2008 when they clinched the Telkom Knockout.
"It will be important that we show maturity in certain situations during the game," Nkoana told Football411.
"I've been in a cup final situation before with SuperSport but for some of my team-mates it will be their first time so we need to be aware of how to handle some aspects of the game.
"The preparations for this game have been normal. We are not approaching the final any differently, it's not like we have been taking it easy in training.
"We are fully aware of the strength and capabilities of Sundowns. They are a big team and we do not need to be reminded how big the task is going to be.
"But we will not spend too much time focusing on how many big name players they have or anything, this is football, it's anyone's game to win."
