Chiefs held to a 1-1 draw

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs failed to make their home ground advantage after playing unnecessary draws earlier on Tuesday evening.

Pirates remain fifth on the DSTV Premiership log after being held to a 1-1 draw by TS Galaxy.

Pirates are still fifth, and Chiefs remain 7th on the log table after getting a late own goal to also draw 1-1 with Baroka FC.

After a perfect start, Pirates were already in the lead as early as the 10th minute through defender Bongani Sam.

Masilake Phohlongo found the equalizer for Galaxy in the 20th minute after some sloppy defending.

On the other hand, Kaizer Chiefs were probably looking for revenge against Baroka FC, a side that denied them the PSL title after playing to a 1-1 draw on the last day of the league campaign last season.


The visitors took the lead in the 53rd minute through Thamsanqa Masiya.

Chiefs leveled matters after an own goal by midfielder Goodman Mosele fourteen minutes before regulation time.
