Cape Town - SuperSport United and Polokwane City will both be confident of progressing in the Nedbank Cup when they lock horns in the last-32 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Matsatsantsa are arguably the more confident of the two, having been the ones to end Kaizer Chiefs' unbeaten start to the Premiership season after carving out a 2-0 win in Pretoria last week.

That result made it four matches without defeat for the Tshwane giants, having won three and drawn one to hoist themselves to sixth in the standings, although they remain some seven points off the pace of the top three.

Polokwane, meanwhile, have been no slouches themselves and sit one place and one point above their upcoming opponents after winning two and drawing one of their last three league outings.

On the team front, SuperSport will hand late fitness tests to Lebogang Manyama, who missed the win over Amakhosi through injury, but January signings Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha are both fit and available.

Neither United nor City have any suspension concerns to deal with, while the latter have reported no fresh injury worries, although coach Kosta Papic could look to rotate his squad as he looks to balance the league and cup.

Kick-off is at 19:30 on Wednesday, February 25.
