SuperSport United yesterday defeated Winnerspark 2-0 to advance to the next round at the Loftus Stadium.

The first half was dominated by United, but they squandered a number of chances and also missed a penalty early in the second half. Captain Ricardo Katza blasted the ball against Winnerspark's goalkeeper, Makweni Mayala.

James Chamanga was the main culprit, missing two clear-cut chances in the first half. But he later made amends when he scored in the fourth minute.

Chamanga received a cross from Katlego Mashego from the left flank and made no mistake.

The Mvela Golden League side took the second half by storm, with Michael Mulaudzi giving the home side some anxious moments.

During the goalmouth scramble , United shot ahead when Katlego Mphela scored in the 73rd minute.
