National First Division side TS Galaxy is ready to take on the bull by its horns when they meet Kaizer Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup final set for Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday.

The lower league side is going into this clash fully aware that Amakhosi will be looking to redeem themselves after their long dry season and Mabhida is likely to be packed by Soweto giant’s fans.

Galaxy head coach Dan “Dance” Malesela says that his boys play better in front of a big crowd.

Like Amakhosi who closed the 2018/19 league season in position 9 of the log, Galaxy finished up in number 8.

Malesela points out that as soon as his charges realised they stood no chance in the play-offs they shifted their focus to the Trophy.

The 53-year-old mentor adds that they will not be intimidated by their opponents.

Though Amakhosi’s cup pedigree is well documented, Galaxy is hungry to make history by becoming the first lower division team to win silverware. Malesela says there is nothing impossible.
