Pretoria - Franklin Cale did enough to save SuperSport’s blushes as he managed to salvage a point following an early breakthrough by Free State Stars’ Rudiger Gilbert to see the match end 1-1.
 
The home side took off into attack mode as they won the first corner within the fourth minute of play. Franklin Cale stood in to take the in-swinging corner but nothing occurred as it fell into the hands of Bruce Mtshali in goal.
 
Despite the constant pressure from Matsatsantsa, it was the away side who would strike first. Paulos Masehe laid on a ball to Rudiger Gilbert, who struck an effort from just outside the box leaving Mtshali helpless in goal.
 
Katlego Mashego took Ea Lla Koto’s first corner of the game with an out-swinging effort from right by-line but it caused no trouble as Morgan Gould calmly made the clearance.
 
As the first half neared its close the away side was caught time wasting and they regretted this error as the home side drew level. Mabhuti Khenyeza sent in a high cross for Cale as he headed in the goal from the centre of the penalty area.
 
The restart brought no changes to either side but a corner from Mzikayise Mashaba forced Gould into pulling out intercepting save.
 
Gilbert’s cross then forced Ronwen Williams into a save, while Cale made way for Kermit Erasmus 63 minutes in.
 
Sibusiso Zuma was brought on in the 70th minute but play was forced into being stopped due to a power failure at the stadium.
 
Ten minutes before the full time whistle Doutie curled in a corner from right to meet Zuma’s foot, which forced  Mtshali into making a punching save, while Tebogo Langerman’s shot in the dying minutes wasn’t enough to get the winner as the match ended level.
