Terrence Dzukamanja capped off a memorable season after scoring the winner as Orlando Pirates crowned Nedbank Cup winners.

Pirates beat Sekhukhune United 2-1 in the Nedbank Cup final to win the crown in front of a sold out Loftus Versfeld. Babina Noko took the lead in the 12th minute of the match, after capitalising on a series of errors inside the Bucs penalty area and Sibusiso Vilakazi’s calm finish to opened the scoring.

A controversial penalty that was converted by Tapelo Xoki for the Buccaneers just before half-time as the two teams headed to dressing room deadlocked at 1-1. Monnapule Saleng’s cleverly squared ball into the small box was found by Terrence Dzvukamanja , who guided the ball home with the slightest of touches.

The Nedbank Cup is Pirates’ second trophy this season after they clinched the MTN 8.
