Dean Furman admits SuperSport United are hurting

SuperSport United captain Dean Furman says his team will hope to switch their minds back to Absa Premiership matters as soon as possible following their Telkom Knockout disappointment from the weekend.
United were beaten 2-1 by Cape Town City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday as Stuart Baxter was denied a clean sweep of domestic trophies following their PSL newboys’ win.
Yet Furman knows his side have to put the cup defeat behind them as quickly as possible, with a lot more to play for over the remainder of the season.
"The season is not over,” he said. "We are a little bit disappointed, and are hurting at the moment. But there is still a way to go in the season.
"There is still league competition where we hope we can finish the year in good position and there is also the Nedbank Cup. It's not over yet.”
Matsatsantsa are second in the league, just three points behind leaders Cape Town City who they ironically face next in the Absa Premiership on Friday evening.
