Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila 1-0 SuperSport United
TTM knocked SuperSport out of the Nedbank Cup with a 1-0 win at the Thohoyandou Stadium
While SuperSport dominated the early proceedings, they were lucky not to concede a penalty in the opening ten minutes after Keenan Phillips seemed to use an arm to control the ball. Fortunately for Kaitano Tembo’s team, the officials didn’t seem to notice it.
However most of the first half action took place in the centre of field, with SuperSport resorting to long range efforts, and all off target. At halftime it remained goalless.
As the game wore on the hosts began to create more chances of their own, and Ronwen Williams had to be alert in the 58th minute to deny Meshack Maphangule with a one handed save.
A minute later Sipho Mbule finally got a shot on target for SuperSport, but it went straight into the safe hands of Washington Arubi.
Thabo Mnyamane broke the deadlock in the 61st minute when he side footed past Williams to score against his former team.
Former Bafana Bafana regular Tokelo Rantie made his TTM debut, coming off the bench in the 63rd minute.
Arubi made a good save to deny his countryman Evans Rusike in the 75th minute, as SuperSport hunted the equaliser.
SuperSport kept pushing, but every effort went wide, as TTM held on to cause a minor upset.
In the other fixture today Cape Town All Stars reached the last 16 after beating 10 man Bizana Pondo Chiefs 3-1. Waseem Isaacs, Ndiviwe Mdabuka and Jaisen Clifford were on target for Igugu Lekapa, while Ayanda Mvambi scored from the spot for Chiefs.
