The game takes place at the Rand Stadium with a 15h00 kick off.
"Look around" was full of confidence that Aces will adavance to the next round of the competition. He played a huge role in Aces’s win over Dynamos over the weekend and he wants to continue with that form in the derby.
In the Dynamos game he played with a head gear after removing stitches from the head injury sustained against Tuks. "I am feeling much better now and ready to play a leading role against Spurs on Saturday,"
"We beat them in the first round of the league and they will be looking for revenge. I want to promise you that we are going to advance to the next stages of the Cup at their expense," said the former Orlando Pirates, Bloem Celtic and Jomo Cosmos defender.
"It’s going to be a very tough game but the spirit in the team is very positive and we are ready for Spurs. They have a very strong team and they are beginning to find the right combinations," Lucas continued.
The tough as nails defender knows what he is talking about as he was part of the AmaZayoni team that reached the 2008 Nedbank Cup Final. Unfortunately they lost 1-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns after a Lerato Shabangu strike late in the second half.
Lucas who wants to resurrect the memories of 2008 was much appreciative at the second chance that Aces have offered him.
"I want to lead by example and contribute positively to ensure our name is in the next draw of the competition,"
"Its been a long two years in the football wilderness and I appreciate the opportunity to revive my career. All I need is to gain match fitness and if I can play a minimum of four games in a row, that will help me tremendoulsy," said Thlomelang.
Tlhomelang indicated that a good run in the Nedbank Cup will come as a moral booster in their coming league games. He still believes that if they can win six more games, they can become a surprise package and find themselves in the play-offs.
"If you look at the log standings, there is not that much of a difference with regard to points among the middle and bottom teams. The top teams are also losing their grip and we must capitalise on their poor form. We have now found the right combinations and the more games we win, the more confident we will become." concluded the Vryburg born Thlomelang.
