Cape Town - A first half goal by Thabo Mnyamane gave SuperSport United a 1-1 draw against Baroka FC in their Absa Premiership encounter at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

On the other side, Richard Matloga scored for Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele to ensure they retain a point at home. 

In the wake of the draw, United are now placed at the second spot with 16 points, behind Bidvest Wits on goal difference. 

As both sides tried to settle down in the match, there were no clear cut opportunities in the opening 10 minutes with the only shot coming from Reneilwe Letsholonyane which lacked poison. 

Stuart Baxter's men came to the encounter eyeing another win and striker Jeremy Brockie took a shot in the 16th minute which went wide, not troubling goalkeeper Oscarine Mahuluke. 

In the 24th minute, Geoffrey Massa tried a shot to beat keeper Ronwen Williams but the Bafana Bafana net minder easily collected the ball. 

However, Mnyamane received a great pass from defender Clayton Daniels and he slotted the ball into the net, handing United the lead in the 37th minute. 

As both sides came back from the tunnel, the hosts were the better side and put pressure on their hosts and their efforts were rewarded in the 67th minute. 

Defender Morgan Gould was penalised for a handball and the referee pointed to the spot which allowed Matloga to score an equaliser. 

Kgoloko Thobejane's side now move to the ninth spot with 10 points from nine matches.
