Telkom Knockout

Nkhatha, Brockie Blast SSU To Victory

Telkom Knockout

Result: Supersport United  3-1  Golden Arrows

Date: 24 September 2015

Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium

Goals from Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha handed Supersport United a well deserved 3-1 win against Golden Arrows in a Telkom Knockout quarterfinal clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The home side wasted no time in showing their intent as they attacked from the onset, Clayton Daniels coming close in the 9th minute, but Maximilian Mbaevu managed to parry the ball away. The Tshwane outfit continued to look threatening, and were finally rewarded with a goal in the 32nd minute after Kingston Nkhatha blasted a low shot into the bottom corner to hand them a 1-0 lead.

It seemed Arrows were struggling to put together convincing attacking moves, and United continued to press with Dove Wome coming close before Jeremy Brockie also tried his luck on the stroke of half-time.

The visitors managed to stand firm in defence, and the teams headed into break with Gordon Igesund’s men leading 1-0.

Matsatsantsa started well in the second stanza, continuing where they left off in the first half. Thuso Phala had a few half-chances early in the half, but Mbaevu was up to the task. Mabhuti Khenyeza also got in on the action in the 62nd minute but his effort could not find the target.

Chris Katjiukua succumbed to the pressure in the 85th minute, bringing down Jeremy Brockie in the area. The New Zealand international dusted himself off and  stepped up to coolly slot the ball past Mbaevu, giving Supersport a 2-0 lead.

Only a few moments later, Brockie was back with a fine strike to make it 3-0, completing his brace. Katjiukua pulled one back almost immediately for the Durban outfit, bringing the score to 3-1 with only a few minutes remaining. The full-time whistle sounded without any changes to the score-line, Supersport moving on to the semi-finals of the Telkom Knockout.

Here is how the lined up:

Supersport: Williams, Khumalo, Daniels, Farmer, Boxall, Furman, Nkhatha, Brockie, Mkhabela, Phala, Wome.

Arrows: Mbaeva, Sikhakhane, Zitha, Mngwengwe, Mathiane, Shitolo, N. Cele, Mahachi, Fikizolo, Khenyeza, Chapman.
