Cape Town - Bidvest Wits scored a penalty in injury time to salvage a 1-1 draw against Highlands Park in an Absa Premiership clash played at the Makhulong Stadium on Tuesday.
The Lions of the North had taken the lead in the first half with Peter Shalulile also scoring from the spot for the hosts but Thabang Monare burgled a point for the visitors late in the game.
It was a rather quiet start to the contest as the first 30 minutes saw no real clear-cut opportunities created.
The home side were rewarded for their brighter opening and took the lead three minutes from the halftime break as Shalulile beat Wits goalkeeper Brendon Petersen from the penalty spot.
The Students came out with more purpose after the interval and started to show more impetus at the top end of the field.
Their hard work was rewarded as Monare slotted his spot-kick past home keeper Marlon Heugh in stoppage time to make sure that the Gauteng side take home a point.
Highlands remain sixth in the PSL standings with 16 points from 12 matches while the Clever Boys sit fifth with the same number of points but have played only eight games so far.
