Chippa United, Richards Bay FC and Pretoria Callies booked their spot in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals on Sunday.


Chilli Boys forward Bienvenu Eva Nga scored late into extra-time a 2-1 win over Cape Town City at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth).


The former Bidvest Wits forward netted a 116th back-heel goal to send Chippa into the last eight. Augustine Kwem and Abdul Ajagun netted in regulation time for their respective clubs.


Richards Bay FC continued their good run of form with a 2-1 comeback win over TS Sporting at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.


Khanyisa Mayo scored a late brace for the Natal Rich Boyz following Decide Chauke’s opener to stretch the KwaZulu-Natal team’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 13 matches.


Elsewhere, Pretoria Callies beat crosstown rivals JDR Stars 5-4 on penalties (0-0 after extra-time) at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville in another all GladAfrica Championship tie.


The Romans played with 10-men for close to an hour following Phumlani Gumede’s sending off for a second-bookable offence in the second-half of regulation time, but the Hammers Boys failed to pounce on their numerical advantage and ultimately succumbed to defeat.
