SuperSport Beat Baroka To Reach Cup Final

SuperSport United eased past Baroka FC on Saturday to claim a spot in the Nedbank Cup final where they'll meet Orlando Pirates.

The hosts made a promising start to the encounter and forced a save from Masuluke in the third minute as Jeremy Brockie put an effort on target from close range.

Matsatsantsa took control of the tie as the first half wore on but the Baroka defence remained organised and kept the scoreline level.

Towards the end of the half Thuso Phala threatened the visitors' goal but directed his shot from close range wide of the target.

The sides went into the dressing rooms locked at 0-0, but Bradley Grobler changed that two minutes into the second half as he produced the finish after Brockie teed him up.

Six minutes later United doubled their lead. A mistake in defence gave Brockie the chance to set up Phala who hammered home the finish for 2-0.

Brockie came within inches of netting a third for Stuart Baxter's charges in the last 10 minutes, curling a shot just wide of the Baroka goal.

The NFD outfit almost pulled one back in the 84th minute but Ronwen Williams made a great save as United clinched a final berth.

Here's how they lined up:

SuperSport: 30 Williams, 3 Khumalo, 5 Boxall, 7 Grobler, 8 Furman, 10 Nkhatha, 13 Phala, 18 Morton, 25 Farmer, 33 Booysen, 11 Brockie

Baroka: Masuluke, Ravhuhali, Ndlovu, Shaku, Jwara, Mothwa, Motshegwa, Maphetho, Chauke, Ntsoane, Mokondelela
