Johannesburg (AFP) – Liberian Anthony Laffor came off the bench to score the goal that gave Mamelodi Sundowns a 1-0 win over Chippa United Wednesday and a South African Top 8 final place.
Sundowns qualified 1-0 on aggregate for the eight million rand ($575,000, 515,000 euros) winners-take-all decider against Wits after drawing the first leg 0-0 two weekends ago.
The winners broke the deadlock on 76 minutes with a sweeping move in which the ball sped across the pitch to Laffor, who fired past Nigerian goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi from close range.
Laffor came on just before the hour mark in Pretoria to replace Ivorian Yannick Zakri, a recent signing from Abidjan club ASEC Mimosas.
