It was Bongolethu Jayiya’s stoppage time sitter that levelled matters in the dying minutes of the Absa Premiership clash.

Aces equalised twice to secure a 2-2 victory ensuring Amakhosi go five games without a victory.

According to KickOff, Tshabalala says that it was he who got caught open in midfield which allowed Aces to counter.

"I think it was a great game of football. We showed hunger; we were very determined from the first minute and we created a lot of chances," the 31-year-old said.

"I've left the team down in the last minute, and we got caught open in the midfield, and they got the equaliser.

"But overall I think we did well and I owe it to the team."
