Reading Time: < 1 minute

SuperSport United and Maritzburg United played to a 2-2 draw in a league match at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria on Wednesday night.

Kudakwache Mahache broke the deadlock in the first minute for the home team, but Judas Moseamedi equalised in the second half.

Evans Rusike thought he won it for Matsatsantsa only for Thabiso Kutumela to level matters a minute later from a penalty spot. SuperSport coach Kaitano Tembo says they deserved maximum points.

Matsatsantsa are lying third on the log with 28 points in 17 matches trailing log leaders Kaizer Chiefs by ten points.

Tembo was disappointed they conceded a penalty soon after scoring the second goal.

Maritzburg were lucky to get a draw after SuperSport hit the post twice. They are currently in the eighth position on the log with 22 points in 16 matches. Their coach Eric Tinkler was happy with a draw away from home.

Maritzburg made an early change in the first half, when Micah Lea’álafa’went out for Bandile Shandu, who made an impact. Tinkler explained the reason for a change.
