JOHANNESBURG - SuperSport United booked their spot in the final of Telkom Knockout with a 2-0 win over Orlando Pirates at the Orlando Stadium.

Goals from Lebogang Manyama and Dove Wome brought an end to Pirates' impressive run in cup finals.

The match was full of emotion with it being the first outing since the death of Senzo Meyiwa.

SuperSport Coach Gordon Igesund says the first half is where they took control of the match.

"It was always going to be a tough game because the two sides are evenly matched. We played well during the first half as we knocked the ball around."

The Buccaneers coach Vladimir Vermezovic says based on what his players have been through recently, they put in a strong performance.

"They were brave and they came to play football but we couldn't win. There was too much pressure."

Matsatsantsa are now set to face either Platinum Stars or Mamelodi Sundowns in the final at the end of the month.
