South African football was in disbelief on Thursday as the inconsistent TTM managed to knock out strong cup participants Supersport United in the last 32 of the Nedbank Cup. This result came as a shock to many as TTM has been hardly grinding out any positive results since arriving in the Dstv Premiership. They will join Mamelodi Sundowns, Capetown Allstars and Polokwane City Rovers.

A struggling Supersport outfit lost the game as a result of a 1-0 scoreline by TTM courtesy of their former star Thabo Mnyamane. The goal came in the 61st minute as they managed to hold off until the final whistle pulling one of the biggest upsets in the competition so far.

Supersport United are regular cup winners however it seems their chances of a lifting the trophy have gotten slimmer after missing out on The MTN 8 and Nedbank Cup. The Telkom Knockout will not be played this season which means Matsatsantsa are only left with Dstv Premiership to challenge for top honors this season. Kaitano Tembo'd are currently 2nd on the log behind Mamelodi Sundowns and closely tied with Swallows FC.

The Nedbank Cup has become notorious over the years for serving fans with some of the biggest upsets in South Africam football and Supersport United became another victim of history. It seems like TTM is finally turning the corner after a not so great start to life in the Dstv Premiership the side finds itself under new ownership only 6 months after the purchase of status from now defunct Bidvest Wits.

Mamelodi Sundowns and TTM are the only teams fr the Dstv Premiership to make it to next round so far as what promises to be an action packed approaches. Orlando Pirates will go against Glad Africa Championship side Uthongathi FC while Kaizer Chiefs will face against Richards Bay FC.

This competition is known for always producing future stars and more importantly expecting the unexpected as Supersport United becomes the first giant to bow out of the cup. Defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns proceeded by a thread against aa tough Stellenboch FC on Wednesday evening.
