A last second heart breaking equaliser from Tlolane for Polokwane City saw us share the spoils at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium this afternoon in a spirited performance from the side.
The first half was an uneventful one for both teams in the first 45. We managed to create some promising opportunities to score, but just failed to finish our chances.
Just 7 minutes from half time, Magubane could have opened the scoring as he played into position on the far side. He connected the ball in a direct challenge, and Chigova managed to make a save. If Magubane had tried to chip the keeper the result may have been different.
Needless to say, we went into the break with no score on the board.
Returning to the field, we looked eager to make an early break in the second stanza. Ndwandwe had a fantastic assist as he fed Lamola advancing up the middle of the field. Lamola took his chance, had the shot and opened the scoring for us.
This fired the side up, and Chigova did well to make a double save just 5 minutes later as we attacked at will.
The didn’t make City give up, as they fought back on the counter and equalized 10 minutes later through their substitute Musona.
Magubane then gave us the lead again with a well weighted shot from distance that managed to curl around 2 defenders and beat Chigova to give us the lead.
What looked like an away win for us, was snatched away in the last seconds of the game as a persistant POlokwane City secured a draw with a cannoned shot from Tlolane.
We will have the next two weeks to prepare for our home game against Orlando Pirates on the 17th March at Princess Magogo Stadium. Kick off at 20h15
