    Ndlovu played every minute of Galaxy’s Nedbank Cup campaign and has managed to grab himself a goal in the process. He the ability to be rock solid in the midfield and his experience will prove crucial when they come up against Amakhosi.

    Zakhele Lepasa

    The 22-year-old, who is currently on loan from Orlando Pirates, will be highly motivated to take on Amakhosi and show his parent club his ability on a big stage.
