[Posted 25 Mar 2012]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Goal poacher Mushekwi grabbed two to knock Wits out of Nedbank

Mamelodi Sundowns big striker, Nyasha Mushekwi appears to be certain to win the ABSA Golden Boot as well as Player of the Tournament award, after scoring a brace to knock Bidvest Wits out of the Nedbank with a 2-0 win in the Cup's last 16.

In  match hosted by Wits at its Bidvest Stadiumon Sunday afternoon, Sundowns proved their championship instinct when they overcame plucky side Wits who fought hard, almost matching the star-studded side pound for pound.

If anything, Wits could have been the first to registera goal, if  Asive Langwe did not shoot wide fromminside the box in the fourth minute  aftersomelovely build-upsby the home side.

Mushekiw then punished Wits, when he got to the end of some delightful build-up which saw Richard Henyekanye feed the big Zimbabwean striker in the box before he cooly finished to register his 7th goal in Nedbank after scoring half a dozen in Downs' 24-0 win over Powerlines FC in the last 32.

The Zimbabwe senior national team striker returned to haunt Wits in the second half when he showed enough goal getter instinct by dispossessing Wits substitute David De Oliveira in the box before burying his effort to put the match beyond contest for the home side.

The brace against Wits takes Sundowns into the quarter-finals and Mushekwi's personal tally in the Nedbank Cup to eight goals, making him the undisputed leading goal-scorer and a contender for player of the tournament.
