Commentary
  • 94'

    FULL TIME: It's all over here. The two sides share the spoils. Polokwane City 1-1 Golden Arrows.

  • 90'

    There will be four minutes of added time. Can either side find a winner?

  • 86'

    Booking: Phiri is the latest Golden Arrows player to receive a yellow card.

  • 83'

    Chance! Polokwane have an opportunity from the free-kick but the effort deflects off their own player and out for a goal kick.

  • 80'

    There's a break in play so goalkeeper Mlungwana can get some medical attention. He appears to have a problem with his hamstring. He's been superb today it must be said.

  • 76'

    Substitution: The home side make their third and final change as Tlolane is on for Musona.

  • 75'

    Fifteen minutes to go in this one. Phiri's shot on the turn from far out is wide.

  • 70'

    GOAL! Chauke's shot is saved by the diving Mlungwana but the ball falls loose on the rebound and Anas connects to equalise for Polokwane! What a substitution! Polokwane City 1-1 Golden Arrows.

  • 68'

    Chance! Chigova is almost caught far off his line but he manages to get a hand on Lamola's shot.

  • 66'

    Phiri turns the ball over and fires a long switch over to to the far side but the bounces of the ball gets away from Lamola and out of play.

  • 63'

    Substitution: The hosts make their second change as well. Anas is on for J. Maluleke.

  • 61'

    Substitution: Arrows make their second change. Zuke is on for Mtshali.

  • 57'

    Substitution: The hosts make their first change of the match at Nthatheni makes way for Maluleke.

  • 55'

    Chance! Musona's set-piece results in Mlungwana being forced to get a touch to it and direct it out for a City corner. The resulting corner finds Phiri but his effort is over the bar.

  • 54'

    Booking: Golden Arrows' Nkombelo is cautioned.

  • 53'

    Much better from Golden Arrows who are piling on the pressure in the final third now. They didn't start the half brilliantly but have grown into it pretty quickly. Dube is seeing a lot of the ball at the moent.

  • 49'

    Dube has the ball out wide and plays it forward for Mutizwa. He manages to get a shot away but it's a tame effort and a comfortable claim for Chigova.

  • 48'

    HALF TIME: Mutizwa's headed goal early on separates the two teams at half-time. Polokwane CIty 0-1 Golden Arrows.

  • 48'

    Substitution: The visitors make a change less than five minutes into the half. Sibiya is on to replace Makhubela.

  • 47'

    Polokwane have come out on the front foot as they look for an equalising goal early in the second period. A chance comes in but the curling effort goes wide of Mlungwana's goal.

  • 46'

    We're into the first of three additional minutes at the end of the half.

  • 46'

    SECOND HALF: We're back underway!

  • 44'

    Better from Arrows. Mutizwa's effort is narrowly wide. Moments later Lamola finds space down the win, cuts inside but his shot is also wide.

  • 41'

    There's a brief break in play to allow Mlungwana time to sort out his boots.

  • 39'

    Arrows win a free-kick after Nkombelo is fouled. The ball is floated to that back post but Phiri is unable to direct the ball back toward goal.

  • 35'

    Booking: Dube is cautioned for a foul in his own half.

  • 32'

    Sibisi does well to cover at the back but City win the ball back and try their luck from range, but once again they're denied by the hand of Mlungwana. Corner for the home side comes to nothing.

  • 28'

    Polokwane are piling on the pressure right now but Arrows' defence is standing firm for the time being.

  • 25'

    Polokwane win a free-kick but nothing comes from it. They win the ball back and Chauke attempts a snapshot from outside the box. Mlungwana makes a brilliant save to keep Arrows' lead intact.

  • 23'

    The home side turn the ball over and push forward with a ball up to Mashumba but he is offside.

  • 20'

    Shitolo does well to break up the play before feeding the ball out wide to Lamola but he fails to control it properly and the ball goes out of play.

  • 18'

    Booking: Confirmation of the yellow card awarded to Sibisi moments ago.

  • 17'

    Chance! Maluleke's effort from the set-piece goes just wide.

  • 14'

    It's end-to-end stuff here at the moment. Mashumba is looking dangerous in the box but he doesn't have the end product right now.

  • 12'

    Chance! Mashumba comes close to equalising for the hosts but Sibisi does well to cover.

  • 8'

    GOAL! Arrows win a free-kick and send it down the near side, they switch it back to the far side before a great delivery into the box is headed in by Mutizwa! Great start for the visitors. Polokwane City 0-1 Golden Arrows

  • 5'

    Arrows, playing from left to right in the first half, flick the ball over the top. Mutizwa looks to get on the end of it but there's just too much on it and Chigova comes off his line to collect.

  • 1'
