Text commentary from Saturday's MTN8 Cup Final between SuperSport United and Moroka Swallows at Orlando Stadium.

For a gallery of the action CLICK HERE!

Moroka Swallows Xl: Etafia, Isaacs, Mungomeni, Hendricks, Lekgothoane, Nergadze, Mashego, Chabangu, Chenene, Tsutsulupa, Obada.

Swallows subs: Mathibe, Mapemba, Mathebula, Maleka, Sibaya, Nomvete, Kumalo.

Supersport United Xl: Fernandez, Fransman, Nkausu, Doutie, Zuma, Haskins, Gyimah, Khenyeza, Cale, Pietersen, Diouf.

SuperSport United subs: Pule, Erasmus, Maluleka, Mulenga, Maluleke, September, Paulse.

So George Maluleka is on the bench for SuperSport - stunned, if anything. Based on the two line-ups, Moroka Swallows should take this.

20 Minutes before kick-off here at the Orlando stadium: Who will lift the MTN8 trophy?? Share your thoughts...Swallows or United.

Both teams will play a 4-4-2 formation.

Lefa Tsutsulupa and Davies Nkausu lead the sides on to the pitch.

1 - off we go at the Orlando Stadium.

2 - Obada wastes a glorious chance for the Dube birds after a good pass from Chabangu.

4 - Goal ... Cale. !!!! SuperSport United 1 (Cale) Moroka Swallows 0. What a start!!!

Doutie picks up a loose ball and feeds Cale with a stunning pass. He side-foots it in.

9 - Appeals for a penalty from Swallows turned down by the referee as Swallows press for the equaliser. Swallows 0-1 SSU

19 - Goal!!! Nergadze - fantastic finish from just outside the box. Swallows 1 (Nergadze) SuperSport 1 (Cale).

25 - SO unlucky! Fine, fine, fine play from Mashego. Pace, then skips past his marker, but his chip goes over. Deserved a goal that move. 1-1

32 - Good save from Etafia to deny Doutie, who is having a superb game. Neat one-two play from him. He's buzzing! 1-1

36 - Doutie forces a corner kick from a tight angle, Chenene clears for the Dube Birds.

Two minutes added on.

HT: Entertaining first half in the MTN8 Final. Cale with the opener, cancelled out by Nergadze. Very open, attacking 45 minutes. 1-1.

Second half underway: Who will walk win this trophy? Swallows or SuperSport?

50 - Etafia saves Cale's free-kick that finds its way through the wall.

58 - Obada wastes a chance for Swallows, Erasmus replaces Zuma for United.

59 - Chabangu's shot deflect off Hendricks but cleared on the goal line by Diouf.

64 - MTN8 Final Update: Swallows 1-1 SSU.

Nomvete comes on for Obada. Let's get in Bhele!

75 - Score update from the Orlando stadium: Dube Birds 1-1 Matsatsantsa.

Second half has been a lot more scrappy and a lot less exciting. Sloppy passes now trending at Orlando Stadium.

79 - Etafia fists away a long range free-kick effort from Cale.

81 - Khenyeza hammers a shot over the bar. 

Khenyeza's finishing has been poor tonight. And Bevan Fransman should have had a penalty given against him for handball. 1-1.

GOAL!!!. Long ball and Chenene, who is in amazing form, lobs the keeper after a great run. Nice again from Mashego also. Swallows 2-1 SSU.

88 - Moroka Swallows 2 (Nergadze, Chenene*) SuperSport 1 (Cale). Is there a way back for SuperSport?

Four minutes additional time.

FULL TIME: MTN8 final Score: Moroka Swallows (Nergadze, Chenene) 2- 1 SuperSport United (Cale).
