The Premier Soccer League have lined up an exciting festival of action in Vosloorus this weekend, with no less than five derby clashes on the cards.

AmaZulu and Golden Arrows (KZN derby); Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United (Tshwane derby); Baroka FC and Polokwane City (Polokwane derby); Free State Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic (Free State derby) and rounding it off will be the Soweto derby between Amakhosi and The Buccaneers.

Ngcobo is anticipating a culmination of fireworks when the Soweto giants clash at 14h00 on Sunday afternoon and is well aware of the heightened expectations of victory from the club’s supporters.

“It is the talk of the town. Everywhere you go, people are talking and looking forward to Sunday,” the 18-year-old told Chiefs’ website.

“In the first one we played to a 1-1 draw. Derbies are always difficult games.
