Chiefs to host City, Downs get Arrows



The draw for the second round of the Nedbank Cup includes two Free State derbies, but no plum draw for giant-killers Maluti FET College.

Free State Stars will host provincial rivals Bloemfontein Celtic in a repeat of the Telkom Knockout semifinal from late last year that was won 3-2 by Phunya Sele Sele.

It is the tie of the round with the remaining big-guns having been kept separate in the draw.

Kaizer Chiefs will entertain National First Division side Polokwane City, their history in this competition against second-tier opposition perhaps suggesting that the match has a potential for an upset.

Mamelodi Sundowns will host fellow top-tier side Lamontville Golden Arrows, while the only other all-Premiership tie sees Platinum Stars travel to Black Leopards.

Free State third-tier side Maluti FET College, who stunned 2011 Nedbank Cup champions Orlando Pirates 4-1 in the first round, are away at provincial rivals African Warriors from the NFD.

Tembu Royals, who ousted AmaZulu in the last round, will meet more KwaZulu-Natal opposition when they host Maritzburg United.

Defending champions SuperSport United travel to Cape Town to meet NFD side Vasco da Gama, while Jomo Cosmos host fellow second-tier side United FC.
