Cape Town - Dean Furman is looking to add only his second gold medal to his personal collection when SuperSport United start their Telkom Knockout title defence.

Matsatsantsa were drawn against Polokwane City in the tournament that starts on September 30, with the other first-round fixtures taking place in the first weekend of October.

"I haven't won a cup competition before," Furman said.

"I won the league with Doncaster Rovers when we promoted into the Championship for the 2013/14 season.

"It was as incredible experience. That's what you want as a footballer, to win trophies and get promotion.

"That's something I am looking to repeat over here with SuperSport United.

"It would be brilliant to win this trophy. I saw the celebrations and the emotions the guys went through when they won it last year. It's something that I want to be involved in."

Furman won't be in action when Matsatsantsa take on Bidvest Wits in the Absa Premiership on Tuesday. He will be serving the first of a two-match ban for the red card he picked against Kaizer Chiefs.

"I was disappointed with the red card, I thought it was very soft," Furman said.

"Especially in the heat of the battle where there are emotions, frustration and anger.

"I have to understand and take full responsibility. I apologised to my team-mates and the fans for being sent off because at that time the game was in the balance.

"It's something that I will make sure I improve on, in the future."
