Cape Town - Poor finishing from both sides resulted in a goalless draw between Bloemfontein Celtic and Cape Town City in their Absa Premiership clash on Wednesday.
Phunya Sele Sele started the game brightly and caused some problems on the flanks. Siphelele Luthuli drove into City's third and reached the byline before cutting it back for Sera Motebang, but he could only shoot wide from a tough angle.
Ndumiso Mabena had the best chance of the half just after 10 minutes when he beat the offside trap and found himself with a one-on-one chance, but instead of accelerating away from the defenders he tried to change direction and was dispossessed before he could shoot.
At the other end of the pitch most of the attacks were led by Fagrie Lakay as he marauded down the right wing for City. He found Thami Mkhize in a pocket of space in the box, but the defender's shot was deflected wide.
The scoreline remained locked at 0-0 until half-time as neither side could muster a shot on target.
Celtic had a rare chance early in the second half when Luthuli thumped a shot on target but Edmilson bravely headed the ball to safety.
City showed off their one-touch passing as they progressed up the pitch to put Norodien into space in the Celtic box but his composure let him down and he sent the shot curling well over the bar.
With only five minutes left on the clock Lucky Baloyi had the best chance of the game as he cut inside from the right wing before drilling a shot on goal but Sage Stephens did well to parry the ball away to ensure the game ended all square.
