Posted: 22 April 2017 Time: 14:03
Chippa United edged Jomo Cosmos 1-0 in their Nedbank Cup tie at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium to qualify for their first ever cup semi-final.
It was a tight affair in Port Elizabeth as Chippa and Cosmos went into the half-time break locked at 0-0.
While the hosts enjoyed prolonged periods of possession, they were unable to penetrate in the final third, with the visitors sitting back and trying to play on the counter.
Chippa finally broke the deadlock with less than 20 minutes to go when Lerato Manzini connected well with Paseka Mako's pin-point cross to head his side into the lead.
The Chilli Boys were under sustained pressure as Ezenkosi pushed for a late equaliser but Zama Dlamini was on hand to deny the NFD side a way back into the game.
