Kaitano Tembo made three changes from his side's previous defeat to Golden Arrows last weekend, with Thamsanqa Gabuza, Sipho Mbule and Grant Kekana all coming in, while the home side brought Sibusiso Vilakazi and Mosa Lebusa into the starting line-up.

Ultimately, Pitso Mosimane's selection proved successful with Vilakazi on hand to score the lone goal just 24 minutes into the match, while Lebusa played a key part in protecting their lead to ensure The Brazilians progress to the next round.
