Durban - Bernard Parker scored four minutes into the first half of extra time to win Kaizer Chiefs the Nedbank Cup at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Saturday afternoon.
The 1-0 win over SuperSport United means that Chiefs have won the league and cup double this season after having been crowned Absa Premiership champions last weekend. 
The first half was a typical cagey affair in a final where the ball was bouncing around continuously between the two sides with no team raising their hand.

Lehlohonolo Majoro could have given the Amakhosi the lead in the 13th minute when he was at the receiving end of a Siphiwe Tshabalala through ball, but the former AmaZulu striker could only toe-poke his effort into the safe arms of United keeper Ronwen Williams.
The lethargic showing in the first stanza continued until United had their first clear cut chance of the half when a neat one-two touch between Kermit Erasmus and George Maluleka ended in Maluleka’s shot being deflected into safety.
Chiefs started to find their feet on the hour mark and forced a mistake from United as they broke out on the counter-attack with George Lebese picking out Bernard Parker on the edge of the box, but the striker was denied by Williams who sprung himself in the air to divert the goal bound effort to safety.
The match went into extra time and Chiefs continued to press and finally found the opener through the boot of Parker. Tshabalala found Parker on the edge of the box and the Bafana Bafana striker hit a low left footed shot which was beyond the reach of Williams in the 94th minute.
United finished the match with 10 men after veteran striker Sibusiso Zuma went off with a hamstring injury in the second half of extra time.
