Date: 07 February 2018
 
Venue: King Zwelithini Stadium 
 
AmaZulu defeated Mthatha Bucks 3-0 on penalties to secure their spot in the next round of the Nedbank Cup on Wednesday evening.
 
Sduduzo Dlamini almost opened the scoring for the hosts in the 11th minute with a thumping strike from outside the box that sailed narrowly over the crossbar.
 
Camaldine Abraw had a chance to send Usuthu ahead in the 19th minute after he was picked out brilliantly by Jabulani Ncubeni but his header could not find the target.
 
Angelo Kurspuy delivered a telling cross in the 35th minute in the stride of Mashale Rantabane but the striker was unlucky to see his diving header sail over the bar.
 
The match turned into a tactical battle with five minutes remaining of the half and Amathol’Amnyama were showing great resolve defensively.
 
Abraw had a chance to break the deadlock on the stroke of halftime after being sent through on goal but he shot wide and the two sides went into the break goalless.
 
Mpho Erasmus almost broke the deadlock nine minutes after the break with a header, but the Bucks striker was denied by Usuthu shot-stopper Boafela Pule. 
 
Rantabane broke the deadlock with a good header inside the box following a well worked attacking move
 to put the National First Division side ahead.
 
Abraw equalised for Usuthu in the 65th minute after a good run from Ncubeni on the left wing, 1-1.
 
Sinethemba Mnguni almost sent the hosts ahead in the 76th minute with a header but Olivier Kwizera tipped his effort over the bar.
 
Erasmus had a chance in the last minute to snatch the victory for the NFD side but he rushed his shot while in a good area to score and the match went into extra-time.
 
Siphiwe Lumkwana gave Cavin Johnson’s troops the lead in the second minute of extra-time shortly after coming onto the park following a good cross from Buthelezwe Ncube, 2-1.
 
Linda Bhengu scored in the dying minutes of second-half extra time to make it 2-2 and send the match into a penalty shoot-out.
 
However, it was AmaZulu who held their nerve to triumph 3-0 in the shoot-out to secure a spot in the Last 16.
