Kaiser Cieffes got a sweat yesterday at the Stadium of Moshe Mbhida Durban, after they took revenge on SuperSport United with a 1-0 win and set up a meeting with arch rivals Orlando Pirates in the semi-finals of Telecom Telecom.

Amakhosi will be home, while defending the champions, Wits, will visit Baroka FC in Polokwane in the second half.

The final will be disputed at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on December 8.

Chips will get a chance to avenge the pirates following the defeat of Derby Soweto at the PSL last weekend. Yesterday they did it against SuperSport.

Matsatsantsa threw chips out of the MTN8 semi-finals earlier this season, but it was a different story this time.

Amakhosi worked for victory after a second half-uninspiring show and was forced to fight gallantly to defend their lead. Chips defended with six players towards the end of the game in their quest to keep their trophy alive in hope.

Amakhosi were very close to putting themselves one up after 16 minutes as Willard Katsande got through on the left, but Matsatsantsa was in the right place. Ronon Williams was well beaten, but the tree came to his rescue and SuperSport survived.

Chips were almost found in demand in the back, due to their Achilles all season. There was a lack of communication between Sibunga Ngazna and Ramchalua from Flah. Aubrey Modiba's space was allowed to enter the defenders, but he released a trained shot as his attempts widened.

Chips fluffed a lot of opportunities offered to them by SuperSport around the box.

Richard Boateng made a frenzy six minutes before the break when he threw Fahal in a box, and the judge, Daniel Bennett, could only give the punishment for Emeksia.

Katsinda hit the position for the second time in the game, but a few seconds later, Flahl spared Katesands blush with a stained strike to put the heads of the staff.

Coaitano Tembo unleashed a swerving second after SuperSport's interruption. Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Ghampani Lungu gave way to Evans Rusike and Soo Phala.

Katsande was not the best of games. He had almost put SuperSport into the equalizer with his evil move, but Itumelang Kuhn did well to read the danger and cleared the ball when James Keane was waiting to leap.

Chips failed to control the game as they did in the first house and their supporters did not want to be patient when they called on Banny Solins to make changes to the time marks.

Five minutes later, Solinas, he replied as he sent Aru Andriannimana to warm up.

Fans cheered when Solinas answered their call. Bernard Parker and Dusani Zuma got out of control and the Yachts needed numbers on the field.

The defense of Fries looked like a mistake waiting to happen, Mario Boyzen the leak in the 70th minute. He could not clear the ball in his head and Oberi Modva took advantage of it, but his shot sailed wide, and Amahusi managed to breathe again.

The fans kept rolling their fingers as a sign that they wanted to see changes. That made the score 81 minutes into the match, as Parker took his place on the field.
