Cape Town - A ding-dong Absa Premiership encounter between Chippa United and the University of Pretoria at the Philippi Stadium on Saturday afternoon ended in a 2-2 draw.

The Cape side were on top during the opening stages, but lacked penetration up front, struggling to create chances.

The first time Tuks goalkeeper Washington Arubi was called into action was on 20 minutes, when he made a comfortable save after Asavela Mbekile headed straight at him.

Five minutes later and Arubi had a lot more work to do as he dived across to his left to tip Andile Mbenyane’s free kick over the bar.

The Chilli Boys were to draw first ended up in the back of the net.

It took however just six second half minutes for the visiting side to get back in to the game as substitute Thabo Mosadi took advantage of Sarr’s indecisive defending, doing well to sprint in on goal and beat Goldman.

The intensity of the game stepped up and there were chances at both ends as Chippa went close through Msekile Mvalo, while David Radebe was just wide with a 20-yard effort.

Mbenyane was then close for the Cape team, but his close range shot was pushed over goal by Arubi.

Tuks went ahead on 65 minutes when Radebe’s chip located Mosadi, who looped a header over Goldman and into goal.

The Chilli Boys struggled to create chances after that, having to wait until the 82nd minute, but Stanton Lewis saw his effort from right yards out going into the side-netting.

Defeat looked the likely outcome for the Cape side, but they kept on fighting and were rewarded when Mkhanyiseli Siwahla scored with a beautiful dipping volley from 25-yards out.
