Orlando Pirates vs SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout semi-final

Posted: 8 November 2014 Time: 20:40

Orlando Pirates fell short of their sixth consecutive cup final after going down 2-0 to SuperSport United in their Telkom Knockout semi-final at the Orlando Stadium.

Matsatsantsa advanced to their first cup final under former Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund through after a well-deserved victory over the Buccaneers, with the goals coming from Lebogang Manyama and Dove Wome in the first half.

It was an evenly matched battle in the first 20 minutes of the match as both teams looked to get a feel for the pitch in the wet conditions.

The first real effort of the match fell to SuperSport in the 20th minute as Brighton Mhlongo came off his line to collect a high ball, but was beaten by one of his defenders and the Telkom Knockout debutant was found in no-man's land as Happy Jele was in the right place at the right time to clear a shot off the line.

The 0-0 scoreline didn't last much longer as Manyama made sure to blast his effort into the roof of the net from the resultant corner after Clayton Daniels' header hit the woodwork.

Wome doubled Matsatsantsa's lead in the 35th minute after a brilliant low cross from Thuso Phala on the left wing, with the Togolese striker sliding home at the back post.

Pirates were lucky not to go 3-0 down before the half-time break after David Mathebula's tap-in from close range was ruled off-side by the near-side official.

Vladimir Vermezovic brought on Kermit Erasmus immediately after the half-time break, as he looked to turn the deficit around. Klate then also came on to replace Segolela minutes later, and Bucs looked a dangerous side going forward.

Despite dominating in possession, VV's side created little clear cut opportiunities as Igesund shifted to defensive tactics by bringing on Pietersen in place of Mathebula.

In the end it was all but enough for Bucs, as SuperSport held onto their half-time lead and secured their place in the 2014 Telkom Knockout Final.
