SuperSport held in Tshwane Derby

SuperSport United and University of Pretoria in goalless draw

Posted: 1 September 2012 Time: 04:57 pm

University of Pretoria continued their good start to the season after holding three-time champions SuperSport United to a goalless draw on Saturday afternoon.

It was Gavin Hunt's side's first game back into the Premiership after they confirmed their spot in the MTN8 Final, which appeared to give them a boost in confidence as they met their cross city rivals in Tuks' first Tshwane Derby.

Junior Sibande and Thokozani Sekotlong tried their luck from distance as Tuks started the stronger in a half bereft of clear-cut chances.

There were no changes at the start of the second period and it was Steve Barker's side who failed to take their opportunity in the 53rd minute, when Dipsy Selolwane was hesitant to take the shot off a Ramahlwe Mphahlele ball.

David Radebe then had one of the game's best chances on 65 minutes, but his effort landed on the roof of the net.

Substitute Diyo Sibisi's header nearly put his team in the lead, but Fernandez pulled off a fantastic save off the line in the 83rd minute as the teams settled for a share of the spoils.
