East London - A dramatic late equaliser saw Chippa United claim a 2-2 draw with Black Leopards in an Absa Premiership encounter at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Saturday night.

Khuliso Modau opened the scoring for Leopards in the sixth minute but Andile Mbenyane quickly levelled matters for the Chilli Boys in the 10th minute with a glancing header inside the box.
