Cape Town - Golden Arrows came from behind to hold Polokwane City to a 3-3 draw in an Absa Premiership game which was played at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday night.

As a result, Abafana Bes'thende climbed up to fourth on the league standings, while Rise and Shine stay seventh on the table.

The opening goal came two minutes after the half-hour mark when Wayde Jooste slotted home with his left-foot to make it 1-0 to Arrows.

But, parity was restored four minutes later by Rodney Ramagalela, who scored with his right foot to silence the home crowd.

Arrows did take the lead again four minutes before the break through Lerato Lamola's right-footed shot, but Pokokwane pressed for another equalizer.

The visitors did level matters again on the stroke of half-time when Thobani Mncwango headed home to make it 2-2 heading into the break.

Another entertaining half followed as the two teams continued to attack each other in search of more goals.

Jabulani Maluleke made it 3-2 to Polokwane in the 76th minute with Ramagalela providing an assist as the visitors took the lead for the first time.

Nevertheless, the action packed encounter ended in a 3-3 stalemate after Nduduzo Sibiya grabbed a late goal for Arrows with four minutes to play.
