Congratulations @SuperSportFC! They've been crowned as the @TelkomKnockout champions for the very first time.
MAN OF THE MATCH
The award goes to two-goal hero for SuperSport United, Clayton Daniels
Oh so close for Platinum Stars.
Spare a thought for Eleazer Rodgers who missed a penalty for Dikwena - and the follow-up
120' - Two minutes of stoppage time at the end of the second half of extra-time...
You know what I mean!
119' - Platinum Stars throw everything into attack. Come close to finding a gap in the SuperSport United defence
Can they pull a goal out of the hat late on?
116' - Minutes ticking away for Dikwena
They need the ball. And a goal...

If SuperSport go on to win this, they've got Williams to thank for it. Pivotal moment.— Joe Crann (@YesWeCrann) November 29, 2014

1' - We are underway! Unfortunately the Orlando Stadium is not even 50 percent full, but hopefully the on-field action will make up for that.
Matsatsantsa also have an edge over Stars historically, having won 12 times in the 26 games they have played to date, while the North West team have won seven. United also beat Stars 3-1 in a league match earlier this season.
Current form would suggest that SuperSport are favourites to win in Soweto, having found good form in the league under Igesund, while their route to the final was more impressive than Dikwena, who scored only two goals, one of those an own goal.
Stars meanwhile are chasing a third TKO Final win, having also won the competition in 2006 and 2013.
SuperSport United will be looking for a first ever Telkom Knockout trophy, having never won the competition in any of its previous guises. Coach Gordon Igesund will also be hoping for his first trophy success since returning to club football after his stint as the Bafana Bafana coach.
