SSU through to Nedbank Cup Final

SSU through to Nedbank Cup Final

Posted: 6 May 2012 Time: 4:53 pm

SuperSport United beat AmaZulu 3-0 in their Nedbank Cup semi-final to set up a Tshwane Derby Final.

Thabiso Nkoana, Kermit Erasmus and Sibusiso Zuma all found the back of the net.

Matsatsantsa will clash with Mamelodi Sundowns, who beat Free State Stars yesterday.

United coach Gavin Hunt made seven changes to the side that played against Orlando Pirates in their last match.

AmaZulu started brightly, with Siyabonga Vilane hitting the crossbar, and Marc van Heerden shooting just wide. Goodman Dlamini had his chance saved by Ronwen Williams, after an error by Davis Nkausu.

In the 33rd minute AmaZulu had another chance as the United defence failed to clear properly and allowed Vilane to nip in, but his shot was straight at Williams who got in a strong block.

Usuthu were made to rue those missed chances when Matsatsantsa went ahead on 35 minutes. Erasmus ran up the wing and crossed to Nkoana, who simply had to nudge the ball home, and the match went into half-time 1-0.

After the break Van Heerden took a free-kick in a promising position, but he did not get enough power behind the shot and Williams had an easy save.

Substitute Zuma nearly made it 2-0 soon after coming on, but shot wide. Nkoana then had a one-on-one chance with Tapuwa Kapini, but the keeper won the battle and made the save.

However, with a quarter of an hour to go, SuperSport's enterprising game paid off whe Erasmus hit home the rebound from Nkoana's shot.

SuperSport put the result beyond doubt at the death, when the ball was floated into the AmaZulu area where Tsweu Mokoro completely misjudged the flight, and Zuma showed good skill to flick the ball up and over the second marker.

Although the SuperSport man looked to have wasted the chance, he turned quickly and fired his shot which ricocheted off the defender and goalkeeper before hitting the back of the net.

you see this overated Mazulu, they came in to this game with over confident and took ssu for granted that's why they're knocked out so easily. Similiar to Downs, coach o nyaditse mo swahlo wa di zebras that's why we hit the rock that night. Now, rats and zebra fans shift their support from mazulu to ssu. Come Mathoho on the 12th, just finish them young man. Downs waya waya.

At least whoever will loose the crucial league encounter will get a chance with the equally crucial Nedbank Cup Final.

Having said that I think I must state it that to us as Happy Nation it matters not as who wins it. Our focus is and eyes are set on the main one.

The small trophy battled for by SMALL teams so no surprise at all.

The toothless thug need to change the venue b4 konakale. Does dis polony look alike lips knows what gud for him. Am calling the MK veterans lig, ANCYL, ANC,PAC and all dose involve in a fight against apartheid to stop dis Robert Mugabe lyk psl chairman. Khoza( dictator) is letting his lost ivory spoil de gud work done by abo oliver tambo, nelson Mandela.
If he doesn't change the venue we will invade soweto lyk hell. When yellow sundowns invade, soweto people will think it the yellow police hippo. They wil be chaos in soweto. The rats will suffer the most as the result of stampede. The hobbos will be homeless once more. Yellow will terrorize Soweto.
Khoza must act now.

Y de venue was announced b4 de semis. Dis is bulldust at it best. The dictatorship era ends now.

Soccerladuma reports that the deal between Chiefs & Stuart Baxter is almost complete.

Personally I could have liked to see a local coach coming in.I'm also not sure if Stuart Baxter is the right man for this job.

I just hope just like Roger Pelgrem he will surprise us but I have doubts.

Steve Khomphela has done that @ FSS.
Chiefs needs a coach who can work within the stingy budget & be able to go out & get willing players on that stingy budget & turn them into stars.
