Jomo Cosmos and AmaZulu drew 0-0 in an Absa Premier League fixture at Mehlareng Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
The match was an exciting encounter, particularly in the first half with Cosmos always looking the more likely to score, but during the second half the game slowed down and it seemed like both sides were happy with the draw at the end.
In the 24th minute AmaZulu nearly scored when Dumisani Ngwenya had a shot at goal that took a deflection from defender Thapelo Tshilo for keeper Avril Phali to make a great diving save to keep AmaZulu at bay.
Cosmos nearly scored in the 39th minute when a free kick by Sam Magalefa missed the goal by inches, the ball going over the bar.
Anthony Laffor played well for Cosmos up front always looking the dangerman but AmaZulu defended well and deserved the point at the end.
The result sees Cosmos mid-table on 7 points while AmaZulu are on the top half on 11 points.
