According to KickOff, Shabba reveals that having missed last year’s edition through injury, he wants to be one of the starting XI in this year’s encounter to take place on July 25.

“The CBL Cup is an important game and it gives the supporters a chance to choose their starting eleven,” said the attacking midfielder.

Meanwhile opposing captain, Oupa Manyisa says that they will be hoping to bag all bragging rights on the day as it will set them sailing ahead for the 2015/16 PSL season.

"I will always remember the first one because we started the franchise with a win. And in other seasons it sparked the treble,” said Manjyisa.

"It's always good to win because the fans get very excited about winning against our rivals so we always try do it for them."
