The last match of the round of 32 in this year’s Nedbank Cup will be a clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Motsepe Foundation Championship outfit, Milford FC, from Richards Bay in KwaZulu Natal, on Sunday evening at FNB Stadium.

Amakhosi have lifted this trophy a record 13 times, having reached the finals 19 times since the early 1970s.

Coach Cavin Johnson will miss S’fiso Hlanti for this game after the defender picked up his fourth yellow card last Sunday against Royal AM in Pietermaritzburg.

Three other Kaizer Chiefs players unavailable

Meanwhile, other players such as Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, Edmilson Dove and George Matlou are also still out injured.

Johnson confirmed that they do not have extensive information about Milford, who lie 12th on the NFD log, but will give them the necessary respect to avoid the type of upset that has frequently occurred in this cup competition when teams from the Premiership, first, second and third division meet.
