Richard Ofori's Maritzburg face Razak Brimah's Sundowns in Nedbank semis

Goalkeeper Richard Ofori is confident his side Maritzburg United can edge Razak Brimah's Mamelodi Sundowns to reach the Nedbank final.

The 26-year-old Ghana international has been one of the club's standout performers this term.

He has recorded 11 clean sheets in 25 Absa Premiership appearances.

Ofori told The Witness on Tuesday: ''It’s a massive game for both teams. It’s a chance to get to the final. But we are calm and prepared for them.

''We’ve made it this far and each and every player in our team is determined to do their part and make sure that we get the win.

''But it’s not going to be pretty. Some of the players have never played in a major Cup final. So it’s a big deal for us. We have big aspirations and Sundowns is a hurdle to us realising that dream. But we just have to keep calm and work hard.''

Ofori pointed out their headache will be how to stop Percy Tau and his strike partners from from scoring.

''Tau is a fantastic player. But we also have quality players and we will let the pitch decide.''
