Cape Town - Former Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United defender Bradley Carnell admits that there is a lot at stake with both Wits and SuperSport as they prepare to clash in the MTN8 quarterfinals tonight.
Carnell who also played as a defender for Kaizer Chiefs said that Matsatsantsa will have to work very hard in their defence side and it was a good choice to bring in the services of Bongani Khumalo.
"They’ve (both teams) got a lot at stake for sure,” he told Sport24.
"I’d have a look at SuperSport’s defence because they were not as solid as they would have liked to have been last season, that’s why they have obtained the service of Bongani Khumalo as he will fit straight right in.”
"I believe Clayton Daniels has been suspended, so whether it will become an import from New Zealand, Boxall in the left-back, or whether they will go for somebody else. I don’t know.”
Carnell believes the combination of Brockie and Boxall from SuperSport and Pelembe and Vilakazi from Wits, it will be a challenge worth looking out for.
The former defender also told Sport24 that both teams have very exciting players and is looking forward to what both teams have to offer.
“Upfront I think they are very strong, with Brockie and so on as well as Bidvest’s side if you have a look at Vilakazi, upfront Elias Pelembe who’s been brought in now.”
“They definitely have some exciting players.”
The Clever Boys take on Matsatsantsa in the challenging MTN8 quarterfinals on Tuesday, 4 August at the Bidvest stadium.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
