Cape Town - AmaZulu are still rooted to the bottom of the Absa Premiership table after being held at home by Polokwane City at the King Zwelithini Stadium, on Sunday.

As it happened: Mamelodi Sundowns 0-0 Orlando Pirates

The draw leaves Cavin Johnson's side four points adrift at the bottom of the standings after being docked points by the PSL.

Rise and Shine remain in seventh position in the standings after an excellent start to the 2018/2019 campaign that saw head coach, Josef Vukusic and midfielder Jabulani Maluleke win Absa Premership monthly awards.

Both sides had attacking intent in an open encounter but lacked any quality in the final third to trouble the score-sheet.

Bongi Ntuli came closest to scoring for AmaZulu in the 68th minute when he struck the crossbar with a powerful header, after rising highest to meet a Marc van Heerden corner.

Usuthu then had a late chance to steal all three points when Ovidy Karuru was one-on-one with the goalkeeper in the 84th minute but failed to capitalise, as both teams settled for a draw.
