Acornbush hope to repeat the feat of the then third-tier outfit, Baroka FC, when they beat AmaKhosi in the quarter-finals in 2011
The 2016/17 Nedbank Cup last-16 draw will be conducted tonight in Randburg, Johannesburg. It will be broadcast live on SuperSport 4 from 19h30
The match follows Acornbush’s heroics in the Nedbank Cup where they beat Cape Town City 1-0
The technical staff had a meeting with the players this morning where they told the players that they need such a big game to turn their fortunes around
In order for the other three chasing teams to be crowned champions, they need to hope that Acornbush lose all their remaining games while they win theirs with avalanche of goals.
All eyes will be in the top three tittle chasers – Acornbush United, Witbank Citylads and TS Galaxy.
Acornbush are now very much on course for promotion to the ABC Motsepe National play-offs.
Young people’s talent is affected as a result of non-fixing of the local sports complex for the past four years
In head-to-head stats, United and Kings, who are rookies in the NFD, have met twice – one in a league encounter and one in the Nedbank Cup preliminary round.
This after all the three teams failed to collect maximum points over the weekend to be able to keep in touch with the league front runners
Despite the setback, Acornbush still top the log standings
