#NedbankCup2020 Club Profile: Hungry Lions

Hungry Lions hail from the Northern Cape, a region that has had a difficult history in the Nedbank Cup, but improved in recent years.

Powerlines FC represented the province in 2012 and lost 24-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns, still the largest margin of victory in any professional fixture in South Africa.

ABC Motsepe League side Lions will be well aware of that and keen to make history of a different kind in their debut in the competitions.

The side are from Postmasburg, some 170-kilometres from Upington, and are coached by Shabba Baise.

They do have some experience in their squad, including former Bloemfontein Celtic star Moses Spandeel, a stalwart of the South African top-flight. Now 39, he last played in the Nedbank Cup in 2016 for Eastern Cape side Mthatha Bucks.

Lions beat SAB Regional League side Phokwane Stars to win a place in the Nedbank Cup Last 32. They are making their debut at this stage of the competition.
