SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams played down his Nedbank Cup heroics after saving two penalties in the shootout with University of Pretoria.
Botshelo Mfulwane and Partson Jaure were the players denied by a diving Williams, both times to his right side, as United booked their place in the quarter-finals.
Asked whether penalties are just guess-work for goalkeepers, a humble Williams agreed.
“Ja it is, and sometimes it’s luck as well. You just go there, push hard, go, if you choose one side just go there, if you get it, so be it,” he told SuperSport after the game at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
“It was a very tough game, very open game. We gave away two silly goals in the second half.
“I mean, for the past two games we’ve been solid, so we need to go back, maybe we got complacent now, this was a wake-up call.
“But it was typical cup football, a lot of goals, as you’d expect, so on to the next one.”
