CHIPPA UNITED THROUGH TO NEXT NEDBANK CUP STAGES!

Chippa United beat Free State Stars 4-3 after penalty shootouts in a thrilling Nedbank Cup Last 32 fixture at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday.


The match, and our boys' first in the New Year at home, finished with the scores tied at 2-2 at the end of extra-time leading to penalties.


Riaan Hanamub and Andile Mbenyane netted for our boys despite a spirited performance from Stars, the tournament champions from three years ago.


However, our boys proved superior with a calm and collected effort with the spot kicks in the penalty lottery. Chilli Boys keeper Ayanda Mtshali also saved a spot kick.


The team will now enter a competition draw that will be conducted on Monday.
