Having scored an all important goal against Downs during the MTN8, Mabena will have to carry the responsibility of his team on his shoulders; as they face the marauding Kaizer Chiefs, in the second leg of the MTN8 semi-finals on Sunday at FNB Stadium, in the afternoon.
Having lost the first encounter by 2-0 at Royal Bafokeng Stadium last weekend, Mabena and his charges will have to dig deep to match AmaKhosi.
The MTN8 defending champs who last season beat Orlando Pirates, Dikwena possess the capability to overthrow their opponents, if only Mabena, and his striking partners bring along their scoring boots.
Having won their midweek PSL league encounter against Black Aces (2-0), this should serve as a warning signs to AmaKhosi, who also registered their win over the stubborn Bloemfontein Celtic’s 1-0.
Last week Mabena was a casualty for having fluffed his scoring opportunities when it mattered most.
Full of calculative runs, coupled with skills the lanky striker has and will kill Chiefs, if only he converts his chances. It must be said, his teammates such as dependable Vuyo Mere, Robert Ng’ambi and Solomon Mathe, come to the party-the whole team could pull a wool over Chiefs eyes.
But that won’t be an easy task as the hosts are only a foot away from the dream derby final, should Orlando Pirates hold on to their win against Bidvest Wits on Saturday evening at Orlando Stadium.
Bucs are 2-0 up.
Which will be the last team standing, you may ask?
