Atteridgeville - Moroka Swallows held SuperSport United in an Absa Premiership match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium that ended with honours even as neither team found the back of the net.
The game had a quiet start to it with no significant attack being made up until the 12th minute when Jabu Maluleke crossed for Kermit Erasmus, who took a shot but his effort went wide on the left side of goal.
Maluleke forced a punching save out of Greg Etafia, off a corner, in the 22nd minute, while Erasmus was wrongly blown for offside after his header struck the crossbar.
Two minutes after the half hour mark Edwin Gyimah was booked for a foul on Bennett Chenene, while Siyabonga Nomvethe was also added to the books in the 37th minute.
It was a half dominated by the home side, yet their chances were not converted.
No changes were made during the half at the restart, before Tsutsulupa saw his corner cause no threat and landed up in open play just four minutes later.
The first substitution was made Moroka Swallows as Joseph Makhanya was taken off and replaced by Oscar Machapa, 57 minutes in.
Greg Etafia was called into action a minute after the hour mark when he made a save off a Maluleke cross. It would be Maluleke’s last effort of the game due to his being replaced by Tebogo Langerman minute later.
Atusaye Nyondo came on for John Arwuah ten minutes later, while the hosts broke out on a rare second half attack and earned a corner, but it ended up in open play nine minutes from time.
The 83rd minute saw Erasmus booked for his unsporting methods, while the visitors failed to break the deadlock as Chenene was signalled for offside, before another yellow was shown, this time to Grant Kekana.
