GIANT-KILLING ACT: Ubuntu's Chiwunga
Ubuntu Cape Town are living the Nedbank Cup dream.

They are what “the magic of the Cup” is all about as they have shown by knocking out two teams from SA’s top flight in the competition.

The first giant killing took place when they beat Polokwane City in the round of 32.

Casey Prince’s men came from a goal down to lead 2-1 before being forced into extra time by Rise and Shine.

But Siyambonga Madikane struck in the 114th minute to seal a dramatic win for the Cape club.

They proved it was no fluke with a demolition of AmaZulu - another team from the top tier - in the very next round.

The scoreline was the same, 3-2, but they had impressively led 3-0 before a late push from Usuthu.

Even more impressive to me is the fact that they did it away from home.

That means they are now the only team from outside the PSL to make it to the quarterfinals.

Unless EC Bees pulled off the impossible against Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday night, which no one would have bet on.

And they could, after tonight, be the only team from Cape Town left in the last eight.

Cape Town City face a tricky home tie against a high-flying Orlando Pirates tonight.

The Citizens are fresh from their escapades in Africa, while news from the Buccaneers camp is that a number of players are down with the flu.

It’s going to be a tough night for the boys in Blue and Gold, they have to try and contain the threat that is Luvuyo Memela, Justin Shonga and company.

If they can do that there will be two sides from the Mother City in the last eight.

The draw takes place tomorrow and Ubuntu could face Kaizer Chiefs, Sundowns (if they won last night), Celtic, Maritzburg United, Baroka, Free State Stars and the winner of CT City and Pirates.

Any way you look at it, the Fish Hoek side will be massive underdogs.

But since they are flying the Cape flag, let’s dream of them making it to the final at the Cape Town stadium in May.
