Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will contest the other last-four tie.

Zungu, who headed home a corner against Stars, was in the wars early on as the likes of Paulus Masehe fought for control of the engine room.

"Ja, Paulus is a very tough guy," Zungu said when asked how he coped with the attention of the Ea Lla Koto stalwart.

"This is a man's game at the end of the day, you have to be strong. I had to show him I'm also a man."

Man of the Match Ngele, meanwhile, was eager to impress in a rare start this season for the former Platinum Stars attacker.

"First of all I must thank the technical team for giving me an opportunity because I haven't played for a long time.

"I had to stand up today and help the team."

He added: "It's all about being patient and waiting for your chance."

Ngele joined the Brazilians in the off-season from Dikwena.
