Cape Town - Highlands Park and Cape Town City drew 1-1 in an Absa Premiership game played at the Makhulong Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday evening.

City full-back Thato Mokeke had chance to fire his side into the lead eight minutes into the game, but his attempt went wide of the Highlands goal-posts.

In the 25th minute, City captain Lebogang Manyama played a good cross into the Highlands box which was cleared away by Ryan Rae.

The visitors nearly grabbed a goal on the stroke of half-time. However, striker Lehlohonolo Majoro's attempt went inches wide of the target.

Former SuperSport United attacking midfielder Manyama fired City into lead with a right-footed finish eight minutes after the hour mark.

The home side responded with a goal four minutes laterand it was Collins Mbesuma who beat City goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters to make it 1-1 on the night.

Although, both sides launched late attacks in search of a late winner, they were unable to find it and they drew 1-1 on the night.
