Cape Town - Ubuntu Cape Town coach Casey Prince says his side wants to continue with their giant-killing act ahead of Saturday’s Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash with Free State Stars.

The match will take place at Athlone Stadium.

The NFD side, who have been the surprise package of this season's Nedbank Cup, have already eliminated Polokwane City and AmaZulu - and a win over Ea Lla Koto will take them to the semi-finals.

However, Price admitted that they have a difficult task on their hands to beat a Free State Stars side that has been doing well under Belgian coach Luc Eymael.

Prince told SuperSport: "The players believe in themselves in this period and there is no pressure on us in the Nedbank Cup.

"We get to express ourselves and we do enjoy it. The pressure has been on the teams we have faced from the big division.

"I think we have been a bit of a surprise sometimes, maybe the teams have not prepared properly for us. The way we do for them.

"But ultimately I think it has come down to belief. Our players have really believed in the plans that we have put in as coaches.

"They have also believed in each other and themselves to get results in the two games we have won in the competition."

Kick-off is at 15:30.
