Chippa United have crashed out of the Nedbank Cup after a penalty shootout defeat to Natal United.
The Premier Soccer League outfit dominated chances and possession against the ABC Motsepe League club based in Msinga in rural KZN, but were let down by the wastefulness if their strikers.
The most glaring opportunity came with 20 minutes to go, when George Akpabio perfectly set-up Sipho Mtule, but the midfieder managed to miss from right in front.
After 120 minutes without a goal, the match went into a shootout where Natal won 4-2.
That means that Chippa are winless in three games in 2015 and Ernst Middendorp will be feeling the heat, especially given Chippa Mpengesi's record of firing coaches.
