6'

7'
Sithebe is fouled by Mahachi in midfield. The AmaZulu midfield player is back after an injury to start.
10'
Young defender Fleurs does some good defending for SuperSport. AmaZulu are impressive thus far but the away side are holding firm.
12'
AmaZulu play some very good football again down the left as Mabiliso gets onto Memela's switch and Mulenga then drives to the byline and wins a corner.
13'
Memela takes the left from the left. It's an outswinger and Gumede gets there fast for AmaZulu but he heads well wide. To be fair, the ball was a bit behind him.
16'
Mbule sets up up Mokoena on the edge of the box to have a go at goal but Makhaula blocks well. That's a better attack by SuperSport after quite a slow start.
17'

21'

24'

37'
YELLOW. AmaZulu counter attack at quick speed and Mulenga gets past Kekana in midfield so the defender trips him and takes a yellow for the team.

41'

Sikhakhane gets a low cross into the the box and Memela and Mthembu get in each other's way. Benni McCarthy looks furious on the AmaZulu bench.
54'

79'
SUB for SuperSport as Webber replaces Manziba who we have barely seen in this match.
80'

83'
Mothwa is down for AmaZulu now but this time it's clear that Grobler stood on his foot.
86'
Mothwa and Sikhakhane are both down now for AmaZulu. Mothwa was caught as he attacked a cross from Rayners on Supersport's left. We could have a fair amount of added time at the 90 minute mark.
