Cape Town - SuperSport United marksman Jeremy Brockie has absolutely no doubt that the best team advanced to the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup, after their 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday night.

Brockie's sensational goal in the 74th minute was all that separated the two teams on the day, but the New Zealander insists that it was SuperSport that took the initiative from the outset and ultimately more clinical.

"I might be standing here with the Man of the Match award but the whole team deserves this tonight," Brockie said. 

"We were the best team on the park from the first minute right to the last and we fully deserved the win tonight."

Brockie suggested that it wasn't always smooth sailing though, adding that his team-mates handled the situation with considerable aplomb when the going did get tough.

"It wasn't falling for me in the first half, the bounce just wasn't falling me, but look, we keep working hard and luckily I hit one on the sweet-spot," he added.
