Cape Town - University of Pretoria will be hoping to further compound Moroka Swallows' woeful form of late when the sides clash in the Nedbank Cup last 32 at Tuks Stadium.

Read: Tuks welcome struggling Birds

The Dube Birds have suffered defeat in all of their last three Premiership encounters to leave themselves just one point clear of the relegation zone with 10 games remaining this season.

AmaTuks, meanwhile, are undefeated in their last six league matches, a run that stretches back to the beginning of December last year, although they managed wins in only two of those, while they most recently played out a 1-1 draw at Free State Stars.

Those results have left Sammy Troughton's men 10th in the standings, although they too are not yet out the woods as they sit just five points clear of the bottom two, meaning the cup will come as a welcome distraction.

Tuks will also have to do without the services of Siyabonga Ngubane, who was red carded in the draw against Ea Lla Koto after picking up a second booking, meaning he will be suspended for this week's Ke Yona clash.

Swallows, meanwhile, have reported no fresh injury concerns ahead of the tie, and also have a clean suspension list; affording head coach Fani Madida a full squad to choose from.

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