Tlhone relishing facing former side in Nedbank Cup

Maritzburg will go head-to-head with Ea Lla Koto in the battle to be crowned this seasons Nedbank Cup champions.

Tlhone is in his first season with the Team of Choice having joined them from Bidvest Wits at the start of the second round.

The left-back came to prominence during his time playing for the Free State-based outfit.

Tlhone told his club website: "Its something Im looking forward to, its something special to come up against my former team in the final, winning it will be the cherry on top. Ive got nothing to prove against Free State Stars, they were the ones that made me to be where I am today.

"We know well how Stars play – weve been watching their games, and they have probably also been watching us. We have our plan, but we also dont expect to change much from the way we have been playing, we will approach it as we do all games.

"We want to win it, its going to be all guns blazing from us, and were going all out to win the final. The guys are excited and we are looking forward to it.

"We have got a young team and for most of the guys in our team its their first final. Ive been there and experienced it, and so Ive had some conversations in camp about how it feels. Ive been sharing some of my experience. I said its just a game you have to be level headed."
