Cape Town - Chippa United booked their place in the
last 16 of the Nedbank Cup after clinching a 3-0 win over 2019 winners
TS Galaxy in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday night.
The first half was an evenly contested affair and with neither side
able to assert their dominance, the referee would signal a close to the
opening stanza with the scores still locked at 0-0.
However, the match would spring to life on the hour mark as the
visitors briefly threatened to grab the lead when Sizwe Mdlinzo fired
wide of the mark.
The Rockets were made to rue that missed opportunity as Chippa went
on to break the deadlock just a few minutes later, midfielder Ruzaigh
Gamildien netting the all-important goal.
And the Chilli Boys struck again ten minutes later to put themselves
firmly in control, Nigerian forward Augustine Chidi Kwem adding his name
to the score-sheet.
The home side didn't let up, though, and rubbed further salt in the
wounds of their opponents as Chidi Kwem popped up in the 89th minute to
bag his second of the evening and put the result to bed.
