MTN8 Semi-Final 
 
Result: SuperSport United 1-1 Maritzburg United 
 
Date: 26 August 2017
 
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
 
Lebohang Maboe's late goal helped Maritzburg United claim a 1-1 draw against SuperSport United in the first leg of their MTN8 semi-final.
 
 
Eric Tinkler's charges enjoyed most of the possession in the opening exchanges of the encounter, while Maritzburg were quite content to sit back.
 
Despite SuperSport's early domination, they failed to carve out any clear-cut chances in the Maritzburg box in the opening 20 minutes.
 
Eric Tinkler's charges had to wait until the 27th minute for their first opportunity when Thuso Phala picked out Morgan Gould, who headed over from close range.
 
The hosts were doing all the attacking and they carved out another chance in the 33rd minute when Phala crossed for Bradley Grobler, whose header was saved by Bongani Mpandle.
 
For the final 10 minutes of the half, Maritzburg, started seeing a bit more of the ball, while Lebohang Maboe looked threatening on numerous occasions.
 
Nevertheless, the score remained goalless as the two clubs entered the halftime break.
 
SuperSport continued from where they left off in the first half and they broke the deadlock in the 53rd minute as Dove Wome's delightful pass found Phala, who rifled the ball into the far corner, 1-0.
 
Maritzburg responded with a substitution seven minutes later, as Fadlu Davids introduced Sheldon Van Wyk for Devon Saal.
 
The Team of Choice started enjoying more of the ball after 70 minutes with Deolin Mekoa causing a few problems in the SuperSport half.
 
Maritzburg were eventually rewarded for their perservernce in the 84th minute when Evans Rusike teed up Maboe, who drilled the ball into the bottom corner.
 
SuperSport suddenly upped the tempo in search of a winning goal, but they were unable to carve out another chance as Maritzburg held on for the draw.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
SuperSport: 30. Williams, 20. Kekana, 4. Daniels, 29. Gould, 3. Ritchie, 6. Letsholonyane, 28. Mokoena, 13. Phala, 16. Modiba (Alexander 72'), 15. Wome, 7. Grobler (Nkhatha 83').
 
Maritzburg: 1. Mpandle, 16. Fransman, 5. Xulu, 3. Sanoka, 11. Makaringe, 19. Rusike, 8. Ndlovu, 26. Shandu, 15. Maboe, 18. Saal (Van Wyk 63'), 28. Mekoa.

@fanzo@chiefs@vaal "To come behind mean something next game maritzburg must make sure they don't allow Supersport to score first because that can be the worse problem because Supersport defence must make sure they don't conced another goal they're lucky to score first and Brockie is going no where he will be available to that important match
