Neo Maema's second objective in as many association games opened the scoring for Masandawana, before Themba Zwane fixed the Tshwane monsters' success when he changed over from the punishment spot in a match which saw Denis Onyango gather a straight red. 

Co-lead trainers Manqoba Mngqithi and Rhulani Mokwena named an unaltered group in spite of Sundowns having surrendered a two-objective lead in their 2-2 draw against SuperSport United on Wednesday. 

Masandawana were facing an in-structure Sekhukhune side which had won four of their last five association matches including a 1-0 success over Royal AM under their lead trainer MacDonald Makhubela. 

Nightfalls squeezed Sekhukhune from the main whistle and they depended for the most part on their wing play with balls being played into the guests' crate for focus advances Pavol Safranko and Peter Shalulile. Absa Premiership fixture <a class=Mamelodi Sundowns vs Stellenbosch moved to"/>

The move paid off as Shalulile coordinated a cross from the left into Maema's way with his chest in the crate and the last option discharged past goalkeeper Toaster Nsabata with a left-footed shot to hand Sundowns a 1-0 lead in the 21st moment. 

Shalulile then, at that point, attempted to put his name on the score sheet when he controlled a long ball from Haashim Domingo, prior to turning and releasing a grass shaper which was all around saved by a very much situated Nsabata. 

The Namibia global kept on winning his flying fights as his header from Lyle Lakay's corner-dismiss was cleared from the objective line by Chibuike Ohizu with Nsabata all around beaten and the score was 1-0 to Sundowns at half-time. 

Makhubedu presented pacey assailants Vusimuzi Mncube and Tshidiso Patjie preceding the beginning of the second half as Babina Noko hoped to even out issues in the subsequent half. 

In any case, Masandawana kept on applying strain on the guests and they were granted a punishment after Sundowns loanee Nyiko Mobbie who was decreed to have taken care of Shalulie's shot inside the case. 

Zwane then, at that point, moved forward and he committed no error as he hit the rear of the net from the spot-kick to make it 2-0 to Sundowns on the hour-imprint and it was the midfielder's third association objective of the period.STATS: Nedbank Cup Final – FARPost 

The energy was with Babina Noko in the end phases of the game with guardian Denis Onyango compelled to make a splendid twofold save to deny Cheslyn Jampies and Yusuf Maart after the Masandawana protection was uncovered. 

The hosts were then decreased to 10 players when Onyango was shipped off for denying Sekhukhune a reasonable goalscoring opportunity as he fouled Patjie outside the hosts' crate, however Sundowns figured out how to clutch their two-objective lead and they arose 2-0 victors on the day. 

The success saw the PSL log pioneers open an important lead over second-put Stellenbosch FC, who will confront Royal AM on Sunday, while Sekhukhune stayed third on the standings in front of their conflict with SuperSport on December 5. Rulani Mokwena comments on Denis Onyango&#39;s tough week
