Bethlehem - Siphiwe Tshabalala scored in the first minute of
added time to earn Kaizer Chiefs a 2-2 PSL draw against Free State Stars at Goble
Park on Wednesday.
Steve Komphela's men went behind on two occasions through
goals from Sthembiso Ngcobo and Nyiko Tshabangu.
Willard Katsande levelled matters on the cusp of half-time
before Tshabangu's goal looked to have earned Stars all three points. But
Tshabalala hit the back of the net in stoppage time to earn the Amakhosi their
13th draw (a league high) of the season.
Ea Lla Koto took the lead through Ngcobo in the 15th minute.
A mistake by Katsande was punished by the sturdy forward, who guided his header
past a stranded Itumeleng Khune.
Katsande spared Eric Mathoho's blushes, drawing the sides
level from the penalty spot following a foul on Reneilwe Letsholonyane by
Tshabangu in the 41st minute.
Mathoho had missed a sitter a few minutes before the
Stars restored their lead through Tshabangu in the 54th
minute. The midfielder's volley left Khune with no chance.
His stunner looked to have sealed the win for the hosts, but
poor defending left Tshabalala with a chance to level matters once again; the
former Stars ace duly obliged, hammering the ball past Daouda Diakite.
