Lucky Nelukau, coach of Tshakuma Tsha Madzivandila, came clad in military gear for a match to inspire his proteges as they knocked out Kaitano Tembo’s SuperSport United from the Nedbank Cup.
Matsatsantsa drew first blood in the 17th minute after Donn fired a volley from outside the box which shot into the top corner following a cross from Aubrey Ngoma.
United stayed ahead and were awarded a penalty just after the hour mark after Ngoma was knocked down by Nicolas Motloung in the box.
Gamphani Lungu doubled United’s lead with a sideways penalty kick that sent goalkeeper Gershin Kock the wrong way.
TTM were back in the game when Tumi Ngwepe scored 21 minutes from time with a sensational volley on the rebound that sailed into the top corner.
Naeem Amoojee then equalized with five minutes remaining, hitting Williams wide of the near post following a Rhulani Manzini through pass deep into the box and the game went into extra time.
Tshakhuma had the attacking momentum in the first extra-time moments and Tumelo Makha gave them a 3-2 lead in the 11th minute of extra time with another goal at the near post after a through ball from Teboho Motloung.
The goal was enough to knock out SuperSport United from the Nedbank Cup.
