Cape Town - Chippa United left it late to score a 2-2 draw with SuperSport United at Athlone Stadium in a Premiership match on Tuesday night.
 
Early play saw a tentative start as neither side managed to make much headway in attack, barring a sixth minute header from Andile Mbenyane that went over the bar.
 
While the Chilli Boys played some neat soccer, SuperSport’s more direct style saw them the more threatening side in attack.
 
The home side would have been hoping for a positive start to settle nerves under caretaker coach Farouk Abrahams, but it was not to be as they went behind on 27 minutes as Kermit Erasmus fired home from close range after some good work by Mabuthi Khenyeza, who put in a cross from the right flank.
 
The Pretoria team however were only to remain in front for five minutes as Chippa struck back through Welcome Qalanto’s goal, which came as a result of some indecisive goal keeping from SuperSport custodian Ronwen Williams.
 
The game remained evenly balanced until the half-time break which saw the sides going into the change-rooms locked at 1-1.
 
Matsatsantsa restored their lead 15 minutes into the second half when George Maluleka played in a cross which was headed home by Erasmus.
 
Then, with 20 minutes to go the Chilli Boys’ task got that much more difficult when Buyani Sali was sent off for a second yellow card.
 
But the Cape side refused to give up the game and after Erasmus had wasted a great chance for the visitors, Qalanto ensured a point when he fired home from close range after Mbenyane’s low ball into the box.
