Captain Paulus Masehe says Free State Stars will not take Super Eagles for granted in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.
Ea Lla Koto’s 2018 Ke Yona campaign kicks off against the National First Division side at Goble Park, with kick-off scheduled for 8:15pm.
Despite occupying a healthy third place in the Premiership standings compared to Super Eagles’ current position of 13th in the NFD standings following a challenging season, Masehe has warned against complacency.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s eagerly-anticipated encounter, Masehe told this website: “We will not be underestimating Super Eagles, we are taking each and every match equally serious
“We are all aware and witnessed in the past what the lower teams can do to PSL team
“The team is more than ready for the.”
Masehe added: “We have played a few friendly matches against them and we came out victorious, but we cannot read too much into the friendly matches. Saturday it will be a different ball game
“I must say the pressure is on us they have got nothing to lose, but we will make sure that we finish the match in the 90th minutes, and have the bragging rights at the end of the match.”
