Nedbank Cup Final set to be a thriller

Supersport United & Kaizer Chiefs will fight for the coverted trophy and R6m in prize money.


JOHANNESBURG - SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt looks to become the first coach in history to successfully defend the Nedbank Cup when his side runs out against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

Hunt led SuperSport to success in 2012 when Matsatsantsa beat neighbours Mamelodi Sundowns to claim the title.

His side will be seeking its first piece of silverware this season.

Hunt says although Chiefs are the favourites, it's not impossible for his side to cause an upset.

"I think you just have to be consistent. We're an honest hard-working team. What must be must be, and if we get our rewards it will be a bit of justice. If it doesn't happen and we put a good effort in I'll be happy with that."

Hunt says going into this match as defending champions will count for nothing.

"That was 12 months ago so I don't see how (we could be favourites). We won it last year and we played really well in the final. We were good value to win it but that has nothing to do with this year."
