Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Dean Furman believes success in the MTN8 final on Saturday could lead the Tshwane-based side to greater heights for the rest of the campaign.

Matsatsansa take on Cape Town City at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this weekend, with both sides aiming for their maiden MTN8 title and with Eric Tinkler's side aiming for silverware, their captain feels a triumph will hand them invaluable confidence and momentum.

"As SuperSport players, we know that we're are in this club to lift trophies. What a great opportunity we have on Saturday to do that within few a months after the start of the season‚" he told reporters.

Having last won the Premiership title a decade ago, the former Doncaster Rovers midfielder is keen for his side to show more consistency in order to secure league honours.

"Last season we just fell short at the death in the league‚ while this time we want to change that.We were on top of the log for the two-thirds of last season. 

"That's what is motivating us this time around - we want to go all the way. There's no point in patting ourselves on the back for being top in December or February," the CAF Confederation Cup semi-finalist added.

"If we win on Saturday, hopefully, that can catapult us into a stronger league push than we had last season."
