Maritzburg United Chippa United PSL Absa Premiership match report

Posted: 29 November 2016 Time: 18:12

Maritzburg United interim coach Fadlu Davids started his reign with a 1-1 draw against Chippa United at Harry Gwala Stadium on Tuesday night.

Maritzburg star Deolin Mekoa broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute after capitalising on a goalkeeping error by Daniel Akpeyi, but Thembinkosi Lorch equalised with a header in the 75th minute.

Davids took charge of the Team of Choice following Ernst Middendorp's resignation last week.

There was little action to speak of in the early exchanges, as Chippa fullback Marc van Heerden had a shot deflected wide eight minutes in.

At the other end, Denis Weidlich tested Akpeyi with a useful effort midway through the first stanza.

Akpeyi was called upon soon after as he denied a shot from Zimbabwean hitman Evans Rusike.

The Chilli Boys had a chance around the half-hour mark, but Katlego Mashego's strike was hit straight at keeper Bongani Mpandle.

Mekoa troubled the scorers shortly after the restart, but Lorch responded in the latter stages by converting a cross from Van Heerden.
