Orlando Pirates beat Wits 3-1
Lehlohonolo Majoro scored two goals in the last ten minutes, qualifying for their fifth consecutive cup final.
JOHANNESBURG - Vladimir Vermezovic has refused to get carried away with Lehlohonolo Majoro's brace in the MTN 8 semi-final, simply stating the striker was doing his job as he got Orlando Pirates through to the final of the competition.
Majoro scored two goals in the last ten minutes as Orlando Pirates beat Wits 3-1 on Saturday, to advance 5-1 on aggregate and qualify for their fifth consecutive cup final.
Speaking about his striker following his man of the match winning performance, Vermezovic said, "Everybody must be ready; if they get the chance they have to grab it. I don't think that Majoro made something special today, he must did he job. He came to score goals and did an excellent job."
Another striker who impressed for Pirates is Kermit Erasmus, who scored the opening goal.
Vermezovic has had his thoughts on the player being left out of the Bafana Bafana squad for the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers against Sudan and Nigeria.
"If he is not on the list it means her must work harder to be on that list. He must keep working hard and scoring goals and that will put pressure on the national coach."
Majoro himself has given his thoughts on who he would like to meet in the final between Platinum stars and Kaizer Chiefs.
"It doesn't matter who we face in the final, all we have to do in the final is win the trophy. Of course now Chiefs has an advantage and if we play against them in the final we'll have to play accordingly."
Meanwhile, coach Gavin Hunt says his Wits side did well but as he continues to build a side capable of challenging for trophies, he believes success is on the way.
"Last season we threw the league away, that's for sure. I think we're building; we've got a good squad of players. I thought we played well tonight."
