Silverware beckons for one of four teams remaining in the Nedbank Cup as the semifinals take centre stage on Saturday.

First-division outfit TS Galaxy are the only lower league side remaining among the big guns, having fellow second-tier club Cape Umoya United in the quarterfinals.

They will be hoping there is at least one more upset remaining in them as they travel to Clermont for a clash against Lamontville Golden Arrows at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in the afternoon fixture.

Coached by former Chippa United mentor Dan Malesela, the men from Witkoppen have so far not met a top flight opponent on their path to the semis, and have a tough task against an Arrows side experiencing a mini-revival under Steve Komphela.

The action then moves from Durban to Port Elizabeth where keen interest will be on the clash between Chippa United and Kaizer Chiefs at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Amakhosi will be looking to discover the form they enjoyed in beating Cape Town City in the last eight, having showcased some uninspiring league displays since.

They will, however, not have it easy against a determined Chippa side which has pulled off some giant-killing feats to make it to this stage of the competition.

The Chilli Boys knocked over Mamelodi Sundowns in the first round, before proceeding to the last eight by easing past first-division outfit Milano United, despite finishing the game with ten men. They booked their place in the semis by holding Bidvest Wits to an epic 4-4 draw before stunning them in the penalty shootout.
