VKB Knights coach Nicky Boje says his side have what it takes to beat Cape Cobras on Wednesday as they battle for a semi-final place in South Africa's RAM SLAM.

Ahead of their meeting in Kimberley, Boje, whose team are currently fourth in the table, two places behind their opponents, said: "There's only big games ahead now and it's definitely the business end of the competition - not just for us but for everyone really, except for the Titans.

"There's quite a number of teams close to each other, so it's going to be a massively important week. We had a close one against the Cobras in Cape Town and we feel we have what it takes to beat them.

"I think we're still a work in progress, we're getting quite a lot of stuff right, but we're also doing a few things wrong. So we just need to make sure we put a complete performance together."

The Cobras, 4/5 to beat the Knights, lost their opening three matches but then won their next three to put themselves second behind the runaway Titans.

"When you're trying to qualify for something, you want things to be in your own hands and you don't want to be depending on favours from other people," said Cobras coach Ashwell Prince.

"So we've got three games to go and if we win two out of the three we should secure a semi-final, if not a home semi-final."
