Aces are next up against crosstown rivals, Alex United in a 2pm kickoff at the Edenvale Rugby Club on Saturday 27 January.
In the 1st round played at the Alexandra Stadium, the Hope City Giants pipped the Gold City Giants 2-1 with Dingaan Metsi getting Aces' goal.
In the corresponding fixture played last season both Gomora teams played out a tough 2-2 draw with Ngobeni and Bester scoring for Aces.
United are positioned 3rd, three points off the pace and will want to get their campaign back on track after two draws and a loss in their last three games.
For Aces, there's not much in the game barring pride and bragging rights and to blood some of their outstanding youth.
