Cape Town City beat Orlando Pirates 1-0 at the Cape Town Stadium to claim the last quarterfinal berth in the Nedbank Cup.

Cape Town City Coach Benni McCarthy was humble in victory.

While his team occupy sixth spot on the league table, five points adrift of the second place Pirates, McCarthy says lady luck was on their side.

City were lucky not to concede after losing the ball in the danger zone and Justin Shonga was able to get away a shot which rebounded off post.

Minutes later Ayanda Patosi forced a save out of Siyabonga Mpontshane, and Roland Putsche failed to turn home from the rebound.

The Bucs ‘keeper was again called into action and kept out a Thamsanqa Mkhize header from a corner kick.

Ayanda Patosi scored the only goal in this match.

Pirates nearly equalised but the goal-bound header was saved on the line.

The City ‘keeper made another save in the 78th minute and the Citizens joined Mamelodi Sundowns, Bloemfontein Celtic, Maritzburg United, Kaizer Chiefs, Baroka FC, Free State Stars and Ubuntu Cape Town in the Nedbank Cup last eight.
