Abafana Bes’thende are fresh from winning another pre-season tournament, the Uthukela Mayoral Cup in Ladysmith last weekend, where they beat Free State Stars in the final after disposing of a local invitational side in an earlier game.

If Clinton Larsen’s team manage to get past Thanda, they will then meet either AmaZulu or Bloemfontein Celtic in the final.

Usuthu and Phunya Selesele will play in the first semi-final set for 9am at Umhlathuze Sports Complex in Richards Bay on Saturday morning.
