Ncikazi said they were hoping to be drawn against a lower division side for a change.
“We always get the toughest draw… We have never been drawn against a lower division team like others and this sets us up for a difficult start to the tournament which saps on our energy,” Ncikazi told Phakaaathi.
The Bafana Bes’thende assistant mentor however admitted that it was perhaps better to be drawn against a team they know.
“On the flip side, this could be a better draw for us because we know Chiefs and we watch almost all their games. It will be easier planning for them and we will play at a venue we are familiar with,” added Ncikazi.
