Cape Town - Chippa United fought back to earn a 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened
Bidvest Wits in their Absa Premiership clash at the Nelson Mandela Bay
Stadium on Sunday.
As it happened: Chippa United v Wits
Wits arrived in Port Elizabeth buoyed with a renewed sense of
optimism following their 2-0 victory over SuperSport United in midweek,
and their attacking intentions were shown in the first half, despite
allowing the hosts to enjoy the bulk of the possession.
The tactical plan from Students coach Gavin Hunt seemingly paid off
when Vincent Pule broke the deadlock with a neat finish just before the hour
January signing Lehlohonolo Majoro, who was playing as the lone
striker for the visitors, showed plenty of endeavour and willingness to
stretch the Chilli Boys' defence.
However, Majoro's finishing let him down
just before the break as he spurned a clear-cut chance.
In the second half, Linda Mntambo nearly scored his third goal for
the club in just his second appearance, but Darren Keet was equal to the
task of keeping out his rasping drive.
Kristopher Bergman did eventually grab the equaliser for Tebogo Moloi's side 10
minutes from time as the Clever Boys were left frustrated once again.
