Nedbank Cup Final 

Result: SuperSport United 4-1 Orlando Pirates

Date: 24 June 2017

Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium

SuperSport United were crowned Nedbank Cup champions for the second straight season, after they thrashed Orlando Pirates 4-1 in the final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The game got off to a lively start, with both sides playing at a high tempo although chances were hard to come by.

After 17 minutes, the encounter's first chance fell to SuperSport as Aubrey Modiba picked out Bradley Grobler, who poked his effort just wide of the upright.

Pirates, meanwhile, carved out their first chance after 28 minutes when Thabo Rakhale's cross found Dove Wome in the box, but the midfielder headed wide of the upright.

SuperSport were eventually rewarded for their dominance in the 33rd minute when an alert Grobler turned home Grant Kekana's cross-cum-shot in the six-yard box.

The Buccaneers could have leveled matters after 40 minutes when Wome got behind the SuperSport defence, however SuperSport goalkeeper Ronwen Williams was on hand to make the stop to deny the midfielder from close range.

SuperSport ended the first half the stronger of the two sides, as they went into the break with the one-goal advantage.

Six minutes after the break, SuperSport were awarded a penalty when Happy Jele was adjudged to have brought down Thuso Phala. Jeremy Brockie stepped up but saw his spot-kick saved by Siyabonga Mpontshane.

Kjell Jonevret responded by introducing Bernard Morrison for Wome in the 68th minute, as they pushed for an equaliser.

However, SuperSport doubled their lead three minutes later as Brockie made up for his missed penalty by heading home Grobler's cross.

Stuart Baxter's charges grabbed a third goal in the 63rd minute as Phala did well to skip past Patrick Phungwayo before firing a deflected cross into the box, where Grobler was on hand slot home, 3-0.

Tendai Ndoro was introduced for the final 15 minutes, as the Buccaneers looked to salvage some pride in the closing stages.

Kingston Nkhatha replaced Grobler in the 78th minute, and he managed to get his name on the score-sheet three minutes later with a composed finish from 12-yards out, 4-0.

Pirates were awarded a penalty in stoppage time, which Oupa Manyisa converted. However, it was nothing more than a consolation as SuperSport ran out 4-1 winners.

Here's how they lined up:

SuperSport: 30. Williams, 20. Kekana, 29. Gould, 4. Daniels, 16. Modiba, 13. Phala, 8. Furman, 6. Letsholonyane, 23. Mnyamane, 7. Grobler (Nkhatha 76'), 11. Brockie (Morton 86').

Pirates: 40. Mpontshane, 45. Mobara, 4. Jele, 8. Matlaba, 21. Phungwayo, 18. Sarr, 20. Manyisa, 25. Rakhale, 5. Makola (Memela 68'), 35. Wome (Morrison 58'), 31. Gabuza (Ndoro 74').

@DopeZN ...my question as well...they are WORSE because they have money to buy all the Galaxy of Stars, lose by tennis scores, used 4 coaches in 1 season and still finished outside top 10 not just 8 . They are NOT a family business but Khoza did not listen when they asked for Bennie. Hold the record for the most finals and not winning anything. I am glad they made all the noise about Steve and trophyless seasons now we can compare the 2 teams' season DANKIE BAXTER AND SUPERSPORT

@Olerilwe Cutting long story short in response to ur quiz.Screamer n Floyd didn't tell players to underper4m they simply signed underperforming players.Tell me where in the world hv u ever seen a team signing n releasing players b4 the head coach gets appointed?In such scenario Who does the recommendation n signing? And to clarify the role of Mr Cowza,he mandated those two to recommend to him what can best help n enhance OPfc brand frm both technical n (administrative)smooth running of a team perspective then tell me r u saying Cowza recommended that Jazzyqueen Legodi b appointed as an assistant coach?No,it was Screamer who recommended the former hence I'm livid/angry with the rot

@molaobert literally you're saying Cowza don't have a say or input in the coming n going of players in his team??Floyd n Screamer wields more power than Cowza?let me tell u kid, Cowza instruct the likes of Screamer n Floyd on what to do, Cowza is the one n only voice behind rats.everything that happens at rats, it comes from Cowza himself, take a defeat like a man, rats ain't guarantee success, they ain't playing alone

Bucs vs SSU Nedbank final score was better than Swallows vs Sundowns final score where SWallos walloped DUnusas by 5 goals to 1. Owen DAgama tormented Dunusas big time

@Papa Charles i hv always been vocal about Mismanagement of OPfc by those two Family Business fc agents interfering in technical matters in our team,Of course Screamer is our technical director however he doesn't posses any prerogative to sign n release players b4 a permanent coach is appointed

Apparently Chiefs is a joke not Pirates... It baffles since they are the ones specializing in big score loses.

@Olerilwe Literally u didn't read n understand my comment.I articulated that 88% of OPfc cows or players were signed by those two and they released some of our better players.Isn't that a problematic interference?
