SuperSport United moved into the quarterfinals of the Telkom Knockout thanks to a 1-0 win over Free State Stars at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Former Ea Lla Koto star Dove Wome was the man who netted the decisive goal for Matsatsantsa, popping up in the 80th minute to settle an otherwise uninspiring game that looked destined for extra time and penalties.
Stars made a change of their own at the start of the second half, with the anonymous Andrea Fileccia making way for Adam Abdul-Basit up front. The striker provided more of a threat in attack, but the visitors still struggled to create chances.
With just 10 minutes of regulation time to play, Dove Wome scored against his former team to put Matsatsantsa ahead. Mathebula provided a superb pass that the Togolese attacker controlled before firing a low shot past Mtshali to make it 1-0.
