"I have three top keepers - Khune, [Brilliant] Khuzwayo and [Reyaad] Pieterse - all training hard for the final and fighting for a starting place," Komphela told the Daily Sun.

"I have not yet made a decision on who will start against Downs. I still need to assess the situation and consult our goalkeeping coaches," he added.
