Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town striker Nathan Paulse is anticipating an enthralling MTN8 final against defending champions Kaizer Chiefs.
The Urban Warriors edged 10-men Bidvest Wits 1-0 in the semi-final second-leg at the Bidvest Stadium on Sunday afternoon courtesy of Paulse's penalty, which sealed a 2-1 aggregate success.
Chiefs, meanwhile, saw off Bloemfontein Celtic by the same score-line, both on the day and on aggregate, and Paulse is now hopeful they can go one better than last season, where they lost to Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup final.
"A final is a once-off affair; it's about who can hold their nerve. Everyone knows when you play Chiefs, they are a big team, they come with a full crowd," Paulse told KickOff.
"We are just happy to be there and enjoy the occasion. It is another final we have reached in the space of two or three months, so we are happy.
"I wouldn't say I had a cracker of a game, I should have scored four or five. But look, we are through to the final at the end of the day.
"It was a tough game. It is always tough against ten men, especially against a team like Wits. They are experienced, they know how to keep the ball."
