The Citizens have reached the semifinals of the domestic cup competition after beating Baroka FC.

Eric Tinkler’s men have one more hurdle before they can get to the final in the form on Free State Stars, as the two sides are set to clash on Saturday afternoon.

Tinkler confirmed the players would get half of the R4 million prize money, should they advance to the final and defeat their opponents in the last round of the competition.

“The incentive is there‚ half the prize money is theirs,” Tinkler told reporters ahead of Saturday’s clash against Ea Lla Koto.
