Kaizer Chiefs were taken to extra-time once again as they defeated third tier outfit The Magic FC 3-0 to advance to the Nedbank Cup quarter-finals.
Ryan Moon earned a rare start upfront, while Ernst Middendorp opted to start Bruce Bvuma ahead of Virgil Vries in Daniel Akpeyi's absence.
Ernst Middendorp’s charges came close to getting an early goal as Happy Mashiane unleashed a left-footed strike from range that missed the bottom post by inches, but Moon had a better chance for Chiefs in the 20th minute although he could only rattle the upright from close range.
As Chiefs continued to dominate, another opportunity arose as Moon played a teasing square ball into the path of Hendrick Ekstein, who was eventually thwarted by Magic goalkeeper Bulelani Cola.
The men from Cape Town struggled to get on the ball for majority of the half and spent most of the time defending crosses, which they managed to deal with as the lively Happy Mashiane was let down by his delivery on a few occasions.
Unfortunately, that was the trend for the rest of the half as Chiefs only other opening arrived through a Daniel Cardoso header that sailed over the crossbar as the Magic shot-stopper was largely untested.
Chiefs: 44. Bvuma, 18. Moleko, 20. Hadebe, 4. Cardoso, 19. Mashiane (Zulu 106'), 12. Maluleka, 27. Ekstein (Billiat 46'), 10. Ntshangase, 7. Moon, 25. Parker, 8. Castro (Zuma 68').
Subs: 16. Vries, 36. Ntiya-Ntiya, 2. Mphahlele, 28. Zuma, 22. Zulu, 6. Andrianarimanana, 11. Billiat.
