Orlando Pirates midfielder Sifiso Myeni is hoping to lift the Nedbank Cup for the third time in his football career on Saturday afternoon.

The Buccaneers will face SuperSport United in this season's Nedbank Cup final at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

Myeni won the 2009/10 Nedbank Cup with his former side Bidvest Wits, before lifting it again with Pirates during the 2013/14 campaign.

"It's my third final. I have some good memories of playing in this competition," Myeni said on Sowetan.

"In 2010, when I was at Wits, we were privileged enough to be the first ones to play at the FNB Stadium [after its World Cup revamp] and we won it," he added.

"After that I played against Wits in the final and I scored against them. Hopefully I will get another goal in the final," the former Bafana Bafana international continued.

"This cup has been good to me because I have scored goals at crucial times. The last time I played in the final [in 2014], I did not score until we got to the final."

Kick-off between SuperSport and Pirates is at 15h00 (CAT), and the winner will pocket R7 million.
