“My team is well prepared for the derby and I’m very confident that they will be the champs. I can even see the mood during training sessions that they are eager to take the cup. Come Saturday, my boys are ready to make history,” he said.

The derby will be graced by Chief Hlungu Nkosi.

According to Mnisi, the wonderful performance of his team over the weekend proved that they were more than ready as they defeated TK Stars Msogwaba by 2-0.
