Johannesburg - Moroka Swallows coach Gordon Igesund felt Benni McCarthy was the
difference in Saturday's Telkom Knockout defeat to Orlando Pirates.
McCarthy, Bafana's record goal-scorer, bagged a late brace,
including a stunning free-kick in a 2-1 last-eight success at
Dobsonville Stadium, with Luvhengo Mungomeni netting first for Swallows.
Igesund said: "I think Benni was the difference. He was
outstanding. He showed his class. He held the ball up nicely, shielded
it well. He scored a wonder goal and all credit to him."
The semi-final draw for the competition takes place on Monday
with Bucs, Golden Arrows, Bidvest Wits and Santos in the reckoning.
