Pretoria - SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams praised his teammates for absorbing a tremendous amount of pressure from Polokwane City before running out 4-1 winners in an impressive display of football on Wednesday night at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Matsatsantsa defeated Rise and Shine to book a place in the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup.

United found the back of the net through the in-form Jeremy Brockie, Dove Wome and a brace from Kingston Nkhatha while Rendani Ndou was on target for the Limpopo-based outfit.

The Port Elizabeth-born goalkeeper said that despite City’s attractive football displayed on the night, they kept their cool as a team and were rewarded for their patience at the end of the day.

“They were attacking us from left, right and centre from the first whistle,” said Williams.

“At some stage they were attacking leaving two to three men at the back but we knew it would be tough going to the game.

“We were aware that they will drop their guns blazing and they did, but we managed to cope.

“Even though we went 1-0 down in the first half, we didn’t give up the fight.

“We continued pushing as a team and we were rewarded in the end.

“Although we missed so many chances and in football you must bury your chances to boost your confidence.”
