Nedbank draw set for Monday



The draw for the first round of the Nedbank Cup has been brought ahead to Monday even though some of the lower league teams to compete in the cup proper have not been decided.

The decision was announced after a meeting of the Premier Soccer League’s executive committee in Johannesburg on Thursday.

The eight teams from the National First Division who will compete in the last 32 have yet to be decided.

The preliminary round matches were due to be played in December, but procedural problems meant that the fixtures have been postponed to February.

The one-off games will see the victors advance to the first round and set up the opportunity for a fine cup run.

NFD sides have had joy in this competition in the recent past. Mpumalanga Black Aces were finalists 2008, University of Pretoria in 2009 and Black Leopards in 2010.

The PSL also announced players who compete for lower league clubs in the qualifying rounds will now no longer be cup-tied if they change club and feature again from the last 32 stage onwards.

The cup kicks off in March and will conclude the season with the final on May 25. SuperSport United are the holders.
