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 mark.

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.
