  • 57'

    Mhlongo comes on for Black Leopards in place of Hlongwane.

    Fantastic skill from Ralani once again, but he overhits the ball to Dove at the end of it and the chance goes a-begging.

  • 50'

    Makola tees up Mkhize, but Lidoda Duvha deflect behind for a corner.

  • 46'

    KICK-OFF! Back underway at Cape Town Stadium with the scores as they started.

    HALF-TIME: CAPE TOWN CITY 0-0 BLACK LEOPARDS. The score at the break suits neither side. They will each be hoping for a winner in the second half which could help pull clear of the relegation dogfight.

  • 41'

    Leeuwenburgh is tested by Black Leopards but gets down low to make the save.

    Another chance for Erasmus — he meets a Lakay cross, but heads straight at Mendes.

    CHANCE! Makola picks out Putsche from a corner. The Leopards defence scrambles to get the block in and they survive.
