It was a game of two halves at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium this afternoon as we drew the first leg of the MTN8 semi final against Mamelodi Sundowns.

The first half saw us doing well to use our possession and create some well executed plays and put the visitors under pressure.

In the early minutes we had Onyango under pressure and just seconds after forcing a save out of him, Dlamini struck a grass cutter and found the back of the net to give us the lead.

A late push from Mamelodi Sundowns in the half to try and equalise was an indication of what was to come for us in the second 45.

The second half of the game saw some hard defending from the side. From the first minute after the restart it was Sundowns who heaped pressure onto us in the final third.

Some solid play from the boys saw us deny them a number of times with Mlungwana putting in a tremendous effort between the sticks.

It was Mamelodi Sundowns replacement, Safranko who tapped in a rebound ball in the 85th minute to level things up.

The team will have a month to prepare for the second leg to be played in Pretoria at the end of September
