Furman: We just switched off for 30 seconds

Supersport United midfielder Dean Furman feels his side still has a good chance of reaching the MTN8 final despite conceding an away goal against Mamelodi Sundowns in the semifinal on Sunday.

Masandawana will be the happier of the sides ahead of the second-leg that will take place on 18 September after Gaston Sirino canceled out Thamsanqa Gabuza's opener.

Furman, who received the man of match award, rued that fact they conceded just two minutes after taking the lead.

The Bafana international told Supersport TV: "It's always [difficult] playing against Sundowns. It was an entertaining game.

"We just switched off for 30 seconds and you do that against Sundowns you get punished.

"We're disappointed to let in an away goal but a draw was a fair result. No one really has the home advantage, although they have that away goal which may swing [the second-leg] in their favour.

"We come back here in two weeks' time feeling we can win the game.

"We think on back of this performance, a renewed SuperSport, we can cause Sundowns problems, if we are switched on at the back for 89 minutes of the game I think we can go through to the final."
