Johannesburg - Bidvest Wits will have an opportunity to move top of the PSL standings on Sunday after Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns
played to a goalless draw at the FNB Stadium on Saturday evening.
The two South African giants came to life in the second-half
in Soweto, but failed to convert chances at either side of the park as they
shared the spoils.
A rather cagey opening 45 minutes was followed by an end-to-end battle after the break.
Camaldine Abraw was the only threat in the first stanza, but
after George Maluleka missed a glorious chance just short of the hour, the game
jumped into life.
The Amakhosi midfielder failed to convert with just Denis
Onyango to beat after Siphiwe Tshabalala put him straight through on goal - the
former Ajax Cape Town man seemed to be caught in two minds as he fluffed his
effort with the goal at his mercy.
Maluleka was almost left ruing his blooper soon after as
Khama Billiat forced Reyaad Pieterse into a smart save at his near post before
Hlompho Kekana directed the rebound over the crossbar.
Tebogo Langerman nearly emerged as the unlikely hero with
the fullback unlucky to see his stinging drive canon off the woodwork on 85
minutes. What looked a speculative effort, almost turned out to be the winning
goal - Pieterse watched in disbelief as the ball crashed into the
crossbar and away from danger.
The result leaves Chiefs five points off the pace.
