Determination from the team saw us claim a point away from home with just 10 minutes left to play in this afternoons game against Cape Town City.
From the first whistle, we looked confident in play and managed a number of attacking movements against the home side.
We did well to get behind the defence but just failed to execute the final touches to score, creating a number of strong chances that were well defended by the City defenders and the keeper.
We should have gone into the break with at least a goal lead, but it was not to be.
Our defence did well against The Citizens, Mathiane and Sibisi were on the whole solid at the back and Parusnath did well to play out of position.
After the break, we continued defending the home sides attack and were unfortunate to concede in the 52nd minute.
The boys did not drop their heads, but rather fought to create chances. With Sibeko, Mutizwa and Venter coming on in the half to continue the pace attack we were showing, we kept the pressure on the home side.
With just 8 minutes of official time left, Sibeko played into the box from the far side. City’s player Seedat fouled him and Referee Gomes awarded a penalty.
Mutizwa kept his cool and converted for the equaliser with minutes left to play.
A solid fight back from the boys and a well earned point away.
Next week weekend we host Stellenbosch FC at home, and would love to see our home supporters at Sugar Ray Xulu stadium.
