Our consecutive KZN derby in the Nedbank Cup meant bragging rights was up for grabs again, be it against lower league opposition Natal Utd.
Playing lower league teams always tends to pose more problems as we didn’t know much about them but we had to prepare in the right manner to avoid being eliminated.
We didn’t start the game as we planned as far as dictating the tempo of the game and,or keeping possession.
They came with a plan of attacking at all costs as they had nothing to lose even if they ended up the losing side. We allowed them too much space and time on the ball and they grew in confidence with the support of their travelling crowd behind them.
The start of the 2nd half we needed to score early as we planned during half time and we got the lead through another Mabhuti Khenyeza goal.
The last 30 minutes was nerve wrecking as Natal Utd came at us in numbers but once again we stood strong and countered with fast attacking play and could have scored the second goal to wrap up the game.
We are in the quarter finals draw now and look forward to our next opponents with bated breath.
Thanks for all the support that came to Chatsworth today.
