Maluti FET College

Maluti FET College, who have a special place in the Nedbank Cup history, are hopeful that a change of coach will provide an upturn in fortunes for the competition this year.

Maluti FET College, who have a special place in the Nedbank Cup history, are hopeful that a change of coach will provide an upturn in fortunes for the competition this year.

Maluti famously ousted Orlando Pirates 4-1 in the Last 32 in 2013, arguably the greatest ever cup shock in the history of the South African game.

They were a third-tier side then but have since been promoted to the National First Division.

After a solid first season in the second-tier, they have struggled this campaign and currently prop up the division.

But with new coach Johnny Mafereka having taken the helm last month, it could mean a change of fortune for the side.

Mafareka says he has the players at his disposal to be successful and it is just about bringing back confidence.

What would have helped was the side’s 4-3 victory over Royal Eagles in the preliminary round of the Nedbank Cup late last year.

That match was not just notable for the scoreline, but also the fact that no less than three players with the surname Mokoena netted for Maluti.

Molibedi Mokoena got a brace to go with a strike from Lucky Mokoena, before Morena Mokoena netted the winner in extra-time!

They have now won through to a tie with fellow NFD side African Warriors, who ousted them from the competition in 2013 following that Pirates triumph.
