We are through to the semi finals of the Nedbank Cup after a home victory against Platinum Stars this afternoon.
Musa Bilankulu scored the only goal in a well contested game just before the 40th minute to claim the semi berth for Us.
After some end-to-end play from both sides and a well placed ball which looked to put Mutizwa on the score board in the 29th minute with just the keeper to beat, but Mzimela did well to deny him the opening goal. It was just 10 minutes later that Bilankulu found the back of the net from a well placed corner by Sibiya.
We had another good chance at extending the lead just before the break as Mahachi had a fantastic opportunity from the left hand side, but his shot was deflected over the bar by some enterprising defence by Zulu.
The second half was as exciting as the first with Dikwena trying to play themselves back into the game at every opportunity. We responded with calculated counter attacks and were unfortunate not to extend our lead. Bilankulu and Dikgacoi once again brought a maturity to the side and settled the youngsters at the right times.
In the end, we held onto the lead and received a well deserved victory to advance to the next stage of the competition.
We have a fixture on Tuesday against Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium and then return to Durban as we face Mamelodi Sundowns once again on Friday night at Princess Magogo Stadium.
We extend our gratitude to the fans who were at the game, as well as those who sent wishes on our social media platforms, thank you!
