Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sa knows his side's progression to the Nedbank Cup final could depend on their ability to keep Jeremy Brockie quiet on Saturday evening.

The Urban Warriors will welcome SuperSport United to Athlone Stadium this weekend for the first of the last-four encounters, and will be tasked with preventing Brockie from adding to his six goals for Matsatsantsa this year.

De Sa, though, knows they will have their work cut out for them in keeping the New Zealand international at bay, although the former Orlando Pirates mentor can take stock from the fact they defeated SuperSport 2-1 in the sides' last Premiership meeting in March.

He told KickOff: "It’s always a tough match against SuperSport United. They have great attacking players, from Thuso Phala to Dove Wome, to Ryan Chapman and Kingston Nkhatha.

"And we all know what Jeremy Brockie can do. He came to this league and has taken it by storm. He is a good player, and fortunately when we played against them in the league we managed to deal with him.

"Now this is a cup match, a different match, so we have to try and cope with whatever he has to throw at us again."
