Cape Town - A second-half goal from Tebogo Monyai denied Kaizer Chiefs three vital Premiership points as University of Pretoria earned a 1-1 draw on Wednesday evening.
Tuks looked to start the game strongly but Khanya Gwala was unable to find target with a fierce shot after four minutes, while Chiefs then responded with two chances, although both Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Camaldine Abraw fired efforts wide of the mark.
AmaKhosi started bossing the possession and eventually found a way past Arubi after 25 minutes, Monyai horribly slicing his attempted clearance, which Siphiwe Tshabalala chased down before picking out Parker, who smartly turned in the area before firing the ball into the back of the net.
The remainder of the first-half proved an extremely rocky affair, with umpteen fouls and free-kicks breaking up the rhythm for both sides, who headed down the tunnel in need of improvements.
Partson Jaure looked to work something for the visitors five minutes after the restart but was unable to test Reyaad Pieterse after firing wide, while Nyondo looked destined to score 65 minutes in after breaking in behind the defence, but Pieterse was off his line in a flash to make a vital interception.
Tuks weren't to be denied a few moments later, though, with Nyondo battling for possession in the area, with the ball eventually falling to Monyai, whose improvised effort clipped the inside the post before nestling in the back of the net.
Chiefs were then dealt a big blow with around 20 minutes remaining as George Lebese needed to be stretchered off after a nasty collision on the touchline, with Siphelele Mthembu brought on in his place.
The stretcher would again come out in the closing stages, this time AmaTuks the victim of injury as Nyondo needed to be taking off, with Lucky Mathosi coming on as a replacement to help see out the draw.
