Cape Town - SuperSport United youngster Athenkosi Dlala has expressed his joy after making his debut in the 2-0 win over Baroka FC in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

The under-20 national team midfielder replaced Thuso Phala in the second half as Matsatsantsa advanced to the cup final.

Dlala hopes his maiden appearance is a sign of things to come in the near future at the Tshwane outfit.

"It was exciting appearing for the first team. This will certainly form part of the highlight of my career at United," Dlala said on the club's official website.

"I enjoyed my stay here and have learnt a lot since I joined the academy and playing for the Schools League.

"It all comes with hard work and we encourage each other at the academy as teammates to take our job seriously.

"Also, I'm learning from senior players and that makes me put in much effort."
