Matsatsantsa will be looking to make amends for missing out on the Telkom Knockout Cup when they meet the Sea Robbers in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday

SuperSport United midfielder Thabo Mnyamane says winning the Nedbank Cup would be massive for his career as it will be his first  piece of silverware since turning professional.

"It would be great to be the first team to retain the Nedbank Cup trophy. It would mean a lot for my career too," Mnyamane told reporters.

Standing in their way is an Orlando Pirates side eager to end their campaign on a high following a campaign where they failed to reach the top eight for the first time after 30 years.

"Saturday's final won't be an easy game against Pirates and we still owe them one, I believe. We are also trying to get some silverware," Mnyamane said.

On the other hand, the Tshwane giants are looking to redeem themselves by clinching the Nedbank Cup title after missing out on the Telkom Knockout Cup earlier in the season.

"We were unlucky not to win the Telkom Knockout and we were unlucky in the league too. This is a great opportunity to win silverware," Mnyamane said.

"So, I am looking forward to it," concluded Mnyamane.
