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.
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.
Supersport United is like a casualty ward.#MTN8Final— Hloni Nyetanyane (@HloniNyetanyane) October 14, 2017

Benni shouldn't have substituted Majoro for Victor. This game is too fast paced for him #MTN8Final— Sir-Dyibs (@333Wanga) October 14, 2017
