Cape Town - Goals by Erick Mathoho and Puleng Tlolane in each half meant the Kaizer Chiefs and Polokwane City match produced no winner, ending 1-1 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday night.

The draw placed Amakhosi in second spot on the log standings with five points behind leaders Black Aces who have seven points while the Citizens occupy seventh spot with four points.

Although both sides played entertaining football, it was the visitors who first threatened when defender Tsepo Masilela unleashed a long range shot that flew wide in the sixth minute.

But, as expected, Kostadin Papic’s men displayed some good football, exchanging passes in midfield, but failed to penetrate Chiefs' defence.

Both sides struggled to find the back of the net in the opening exchanges until in the 31st minute, Mathoho jumped onto an error by City. Defender Sibusiso Mbonani handled the ball and was penalised for a free kick which they failed to defend. Mathoho reacted quickest to score with his right foot. 

In the 56th minute, Reneilwe Letsholonyane took a shot that did not trouble Konopi in goal before Randy Ngobe released a thunderbolt to beat Khune and hit the crossbar in the 62nd minute, but Puleng Tlolane was on hand to volley home the rebound and make it 1-1.

Chiefs nearly got a winner when Langa cleared Tshabalala’s corner right off the by-line.
