Cape Town - Chippa United midfielder Sandile Zuke believes his side cannot underestimate Witbank Spurs in Wednesday's last-32 Nedbank Cup encounter in Port Elizabeth.

The Chilli Boys face the side from the National First Division and are expected to be firm favourites at home. However, Zuke was warned against any complacency.

"Teams from the lower leagues double their efforts against Premier league sides so there will be no room for complacency on Wednesday," he told the club's official website.

"Spurs will not be different and they will come here with an intention to cause an upset.

"We must be ready for them. We want to win every game, that is always our intention. We are going with the same mentality and attitude come Wednesday. We want to proceed to the next round."

In team news for Chippa, strikers Rhulani Manzini and Andile Mbenyane are both in doubt to take any part due to injuries.

Meanwhile, coach Dan Malesela has returned to coach the team after recently being admitted to hospital with back pain.

Spurs find themselves placed ninth on the National First Division table and have not won a game in their last five matches. Siyavutha will no doubt hope to bounce back to winning ways by upsetting United.

Wednesday's action gets underway from Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium at 19:30.
