Pretoria - SuperSport United captain Dean Furman said that a win over the struggling NFD outfit Moroka Swallows was a good morale booster for his team-mates following their disappointing 2015/16 Absa Premiership campaign.

Matsatsantsa defeated the Dube Birds 1-0 in the Nedbank Cup Last-32 clash played at Dobsonville Stadium on Tuesday.

The inform Jeremy Brockie was on target for Stuart Baxter 's troops after the interval to send them into the next round of the R7m competition.

Furman believes that their win was a result of the team's hard work at the training ground.

"It's very massive for us to get a win in a cup game," said Furman.

"We have discussed as a team how important it would be for us to win before the game.

"It's a great opportunity for us to get something out of this season because it hasn't gone our way at times.

"We want to show everyone the quality of a team we are and we are also working hard at the training pitch.

"We just had to make sure that we get the job done and we did."
