AmaZulu FC edged out Tornado FC 3-2 in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 match at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The win saw Usuthu progress to the Last 16 of the South African FA Cup and they are now set to take on TS Galaxy at home in a DStv Premiership match on February 18.
While Tornado’s dream run in the tournament came to an end and they will now look to win the ABC Motsepe League (Northern Cape) title and qualify for the national promotional play-offs.
Meanwhile, TS Galaxy avoided a potential Nedbank Cup upset as they emerged 2-0 victors against Amavarara in the round of 32 at the BidVest Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The ABC Motsepe League outfit gave as good as they got for much of the opening 45 minutes and threatened the home goal on a couple of occasions midway through the first half without success.
However, the Rockets finished the half in the ascendancy as they struck twice in the space of four minutes to take command of the cup-tie.
Sphiwe Mahlangu opened the scoring with a strike from inside the area on 41 minutes and the Galaxy fans were celebrating again just before halftime when the goalscorer turned provider for Phohlongo to beat Khanya Mini.
