Kaizer Chiefs will meet National First Division (NFD) side TS Galaxy in the Nedbank Cup final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban next month.

Amakhosi reached the final following a 4-2 win over Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Chiefs’ goals were scored by Dumisani Zuma, Arohasina Andrianarimanana, Bernard Parker and Khama Billiat, while Andile Mbenyane and Lerato Manzini netted for the Chilli Boyz. Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp believes that last night’s encounter was a quality game for both sides.

The German-born Middendorp has said that they had shocking moments during the game, especially when the Chilli Boyz were leading 2-1. However, he added that his players’ response got them to the final.

Meanwhile, Chilli Boyz coach Clinton Larsen has said that the manner in which they conceded the first three goals was disappointing. Despite that, Larsen reckons that they did well during the match.

The former Lamontville Golden Arrows and Bloemfontein Celtic coach says their loss had nothing to do with the lapse of concentration on his players’ part. Chiefs scored their second goal while Larsen was preparing to bring in Boikanyo Komane. The Chilli Boyz were leading 2-1 at the time.
