Kgotso Moleko and Sibusiso Khumalo will both start in this afternoon’s Nedbank Cup Last 16 clash against Acornbush United.

They come in for respectively Ramahlwe ‘Rama’ Mphahlele and Tsepo Masilela, who both did well in last week’s 2-1 win over Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mphahlele sits on the bench, while Masilela has been given a break.
