What an encounter, and a draw is certainly a fair result. Both sides played exciting football and it was looking like Stars would of steal a emphatic surprise victory over the Soweto giants.

Cavin Johnson will be a satisfied coach to come away with a point but Eric Tinkler will feel disappointed as Mamelodi Sundowns suffered a draw against Black Aces.

Kaizer Chiefs take on relegation threatened AmaZulu and Stuart Baxter will implode the idea that a win will put them in a better position to lift the PSL title.
