SSU through to Nedbank Cup Final

Posted: 6 May 2012 Time: 16:53

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.

Hehehe @Brazilitto, "invade Soweto", hahaha I must say, that's funny.

Your team has 130 supporters 30 of which are your players & you planning to invade Soweto?

This win against FSS is playing tricks on your mind. Hold your excitement & save it for when you win the Cup.
Mxm, as if you were going to fill the grand stand had this final been moved to Pretoria. Just go & do your homework, it's school tomorrow.

m.h 'wasting money': I wonder that means in our venecular language: sometimes thinking in our language and interpreting in English can be very ambigious: but ke back to the article: we expect nothing but fireworks, I know Supersports will want to come to the party and maybe display entertaining football as Downs has been doing: I believe Downs deserves the Final and as for Supersports not sure but they didn't just wake up in the Finals they earned the place: as for the Championship going to Jozi and Nedbank Cup that reminds me that the Nedbank finalists both hold a what we call 'back to back' record: defended in three consecutive times: a treble in English terms: anyways until the record is broken then we may start to worry for now, it's mission getting our a's into g's:
