Cape Town - Premiership strugglers Baroka FC held Platinum Stars to a goalless draw on Wednesday, but the point was not enough to lift them off the foot of the table.

Cavin Johnson's side threatened as early as the third minute through Gerald Phiri, who failed to test Masuluke, before Ndivhuwo Ravhuhali sent his free-kick inches over the crossbar at the other end nine minutes later.

The best chance of the first half came for the visitors on 41 minutes, with Robert Ng'ambi firing a firm effort on goal, but Masuluke produced a superb save at full stretch to deny him the opener.

Marshall Munetsi went close to breaking the deadlock for Baroka 13 minutes into the second half, but his shot sailed just wide of the target.

Masuluke was then called into action again on 69 minutes as he pulled off another fine save to keep out Ng'ambi, while substitute Gift Links steered a header inches over the bar with Masuluke beaten four minutes later.

In the end, though, the two clubs had to settle for a share of the spoils at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
