Cape Town - University of Pretoria joint-coach Seloatse Mosala is feeling confident about his side's chances ahead of their Nedbank Cup match against Moroka Swallows.

AmaTuks and the Dube Birds met in the Ke Yona final in 2009, a match Swallows won 1-0.

This will be the first time Mosala has been in charge of the team for a cup fixture, and he is hopeful about their chances.

"We have now been in the Premier League for three years, if you look back at our involvement in this competition, we've played against Maritzburg United which we lost 1-0, SuperSport United which we also lost 1-0 and now drawn against Swallows and [we are] fortunate to be playing at home.

"The preparations are still going good and we hoping the fortunes will change this year as we have also been having a good run in the season."

Tuks skipper Tebogo Monyai added: "As the captain I would also like to step out properly as this might be my last Nedbank Cup appearance, playing Moroka Swallows is like playing a team which is unpredictable because a cup game is different as compared to a league match.

"As we have never done well in this tournament, now I think it's our time we are prepared and we will play our full strength team and shall not be undermining any opponent.

“Our top scorer [Thabo Mnyamane] is fit of playing and should add numbers in our attack."
