We shared the spoils with AmaZulu in this afternoons Durban Derby at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
In what was a game of two halves, we dominated the first 45 minutes, keeping our opponents on the back foot and pressing up on the wings to get attacking ball into the last third.
This game plan worked well, with Sibiya and S.Dube pushing up well and feeding some clean balls to the box. We were unfortunate on a number of occasions not to benefit from the play.
It was off one of these attacking moves that Lamola was bought down in the box, and the referee awarded a penalty to us.
Sibiya converted the opportunity to give a lead heading into the break.
The second half of the game was dominated by AmaZulu who seemed to be determined to claw back the lead from us. They managed to retain a lot of ball and made a number of attacking plays.
We too defended a little to hard, and conceded a penalty as Ntuli was taken down in the box.
He made no mistake in converting and equaled the score with just 15 minutes of play left.
With neither teams managing to convert chances created in the last quarter of the game, we had to be content with a draw and a point from the afternoons action.
The team will return to training in preparation for our away game against Cape Town City next Sunday being their top priority.
