DStv Compact Cup: Dolly, Khune, Lorch and company ready to go!


Amabutho face Warriors FC in the second DStv Compact Cup this evening at the Moses Mabhida stadium.

The star studded Warriors FC will head into this evening’s clash as clear favourites however, as semi-final one showed earlier this evening, star players may struggle to gel together.

Coastal FC eased to a shock 3-0 victory over a much stronger Dinaledi FC, on paper at least! Goals by Taariq Fielies, Lutho Sifumba and Ashley Du Preez were enough to book Coastal FC’s spot in the DStv Compact Cup final.

Mzansi will be licking their lips at the prospect of seeing Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs’ talisman Thembinkosi Lorch, Keagan Dolly on one team this evening.

Khoza explains importance of cup

“We have agreed as the executive committee that there is a need for something like the DSTV Compact Cup. So we do request that teams make their players, the ones that aren’t involved in the AFCON, available for this tournament.” PSL president Irvin Khoza.

“We will ask all teams to provide four players from their DSTV Diski team to be a part of these squads and we will also require one Diski player to be on the field for each team. This is to ensure that these players get the relevant exposure and experience and it becomes easier for everyone to identify with those players.

“We feel that getting the fans involved in selecting the teams, for the DStv Compact Cup, coaches and team names is another way to allow them the opportunity to get involved in the processes of the game, the exact way they’re always hoping they can through the TV screen.”

Kick-off at the Moses Mabhida stadium is scheduled to get underway at 18:00 in this evening’s DStv Compact Cup semi-final clash. The match will be televised live on SuperSport PSL.
