Lidoda Duvha currently sit in 13th place in the PSL table, level on points with other relegation candidates Ajax Cape Town and AmaZulu.

Leopards head coach Abel Makhubele will be hoping for better fortunes at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in midweek after a run of three consecutive losses in the league in 2013.

"We take on Cape Town Stars who we will not take lightly. For the fact that they have made it to where they are now it means they are good just like any other PSL team, so we will go all out," said Makhubele.

"There are positives in all the matches we have played which we have to make sure we keep and then improve on the areas that need attention. Also we have a good record in the Nedbank Cup and we look to keep it the same.

"We have all players available for the game except for Ramagalela who got injured during the match against Bidvest Wits, but he has made considerable progress and we will see if he is available for the game tomorrow," he added.

All Stars, meanwhile, have enjoyed an impressive campaign this season, topping South Africa's third-tier by seven points and currently on an eight game winning streak.

But the relatively young Mother City club, founded as recently as 2010, will have their work cut out for them on Wednesday when they prepare to do battle in the cup.
