Bethlehem - Siphiwe Tshabalala scored in the first minute of added time to earn Kaizer Chiefs a 2-2 PSL draw against Free State Stars at Goble Park on Wednesday.

Steve Komphela's men went behind on two occasions through goals from Sthembiso Ngcobo and Nyiko Tshabangu.

Willard Katsande levelled matters on the cusp of half-time before Tshabangu's goal looked to have earned Stars all three points. But Tshabalala hit the back of the net in stoppage time to earn the Amakhosi their 13th draw (a league high) of the season.

Ea Lla Koto took the lead through Ngcobo in the 15th minute. A mistake by Katsande was punished by the sturdy forward, who guided his header past a stranded Itumeleng Khune.

Katsande spared Eric Mathoho's blushes, drawing the sides level from the penalty spot following a foul on Reneilwe Letsholonyane by Tshabangu in the 41st minute.

Mathoho had missed a sitter a few minutes before the equaliser.

Stars restored their lead through Tshabangu in the 54th minute. The midfielder's volley left Khune with no chance.

His stunner looked to have sealed the win for the hosts, but poor defending left Tshabalala with a chance to level matters once again; the former Stars ace duly obliged, hammering the ball past  Daouda Diakite.
