Itumeleng Khune's outstanding goalkeeping performance for Warriors in their DStv Compact Cup semifinal win against Amabutho on Saturday night may have given his Kaizer Chiefs boss Stuart Baxter pause.

Khune, who has played only one cup game for Chiefs this season because Baxter prefers Nigerian international Daniel Akpeyi in goal, was in command for Warriors at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

His Warriors coach, Dylan Kerr, praised him, saying, "Khune was great." He deserves credit because he hasn't played football in a long time. He's a world-class goalkeeper, I'll tell you that.

Siyethemba Sithebe scored an own goal in the 50th minute for Warriors, Nkosinathi Sibisi equalised for Amabutho in the 69th minute, and Monnapule Saleng scored the game-winning goal in the 86th minute.

Coastal United qualified for next Saturday's (January 29) final with a 3-0 win over Dinaledi in the competition, which features public voting for line-ups drawn from four streams of four Premiership teams.
