Goal.com caught up with the Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere ahead of their visit to Loftus to face Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarterfinal of the Nedbank Cup on Sunday afternoon
The Nedbank Cup looks like the only trophy left for Dikwena to try and win this season with coach Cavin Johnson claiming that Chiefs have won the league title already.
“I believe we are the underdogs because we are playing away from home. We want to forget about the past results and focus more on the upcoming game,” Mere told Goal.com.
Dikwena have had an upper hand over Sundowns in recent seasons and will surely be a threat to the Brazilians who will be without their suspended defender Alje Schut.
Schut, who scored with a header when these teams met in a league encounter a fortnight ago, received his marching orders together with Henrico Botes during that match and they won’t be available for this match.
Mere has dismissed reports that he will have a point to prove against his former club this afternoon, as he revealed that he enjoyed his time at Sundowns and he is happy to be with Rustenburg-based outfit.
“I have got nothing to prove against Sundowns. I have had successful years there, but I have moved on to Platinum Stars and I am happy where I am,” said Mere.
