Eric Tinkler: Hard match especially when we went one man down. It was really about defending for our lives.

The work ethic and character of the boys was fantastic and we knew if it went to penalties Ronwen will clinch it for us and that's exactly what he did.

14 Oct 21:57

Benni McCarthy: I can't fault the boys today they gave everything. We had chances today but we couldn't kill the game.

I'm super proud of my boys, unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. I'm just sinking it all in being in a final after only 9 games.

  • 1201'

    We're into two minutes of stoppage time before penalties.

  • 117'

    Moseamedi shoots for goal, but his tame effort goes wide. Cape Town City have been woeful in the final third lately.

  • 116'

    Myeni fires a cross in, but can't find Wome. Meanwhile, Grobler looks to be struggling with cramp too!

  • 114'

    Now Daniels is struggling. He's going to have to soldier on for the last few minutes of this game.

  • 111'

    Mokoena is yellow carded for a foul on Nodada.

    HALF-TIME, EXTRA TIME: CAPE TOWN CITY 1-1 SUPERSPORT UNITED. We're halfway through extra time and Cape Town City have been unable to find a way through. SuperSport have at times looked dangerous on the counter, but have also failed to find an end product.

  • 105'

    At the other end, Obinna goes for goal from distance, but his shot is also well off target.

  • 104'

    Wome fires well over the target yet again. He should expect better from himself.

  • 101'

    It's clear there are some tired legs out there. The pace of the game seems to have slowed significantly.

  • 98'

    Wome gets a chance at the other end and fires over the bar. SuperSport United are just reminding us that they can threaten on the counter.

  • 97'

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, Cape Town City are doing all of the extra time attacking looking to capitalise on their numerical advantage.

  • 85'

    Phala is receiving treatment, so SuperSport are down to nine men for try moment.

  • 83'

    Obinna fires a left-footed shot across the face of goal and wide of the target.

  • 82'

    Matsi picks up a yellow card for clattering into Grobler's back. This booking has been coming for a while.

  • 60'

    Brockie gets a ball into the danger area, but there's nobody there to fire a shot at goal.
