Kaitano Tembo will not let another MTN8 title slip away from his hands when SuperSport United face Highlands Park in this year’s final scheduled for today.

The Zimbabwean gaffer who won the knockout cup as a player in 2004 looked set to win it as coach last year but lost to Cape Town City on penalties.

He guided the team to the final again and is hoping to make it right this time and win the silverware which will be his first as the head coach.

The cup triumph will not only come as a delight to the gaffer, but it will save his job at SuperSport.

Forward Evans Rusike who is yet to win something since moving to South Africa four years ago will be hoping to break the jinx with the help of fellow countrymen Onismor Bhasera, keeper Washington Arubi and Kudakwashe Mahachi who arrived at the club in the preseason.

Highlands Park’s Tendai Ndoro and Tapuwa Kapini also have their sights on the accolade which their club is yet to win.

Kick-off time for the match is 6 pm.
