Moroka Swallows fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday.
Celtic went two goals up through Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Moses Spandeel, but couldn't hold onto the lead as the Birds fought back in the last 15 minutes through Ryan Botha and Elton Morelato.
The result makes it six games without a win for the Bloemfontein club, who sit on the bottom of the log with two points from two draws and four losses.
Sserunkuma opened the scoring for Phunya Sele Sele on 29 minutes, slotting home a pass from Keamogetse Wolff after Swallows' defence confused themselves with the offside trap.
Spandeel scored the second for Celtic in the 65th minute, heading in a cross from Patrick Malokase.
Botha, who was brought on for Morgan Shivambu, brought one back for Swallows in the 77th minute, blasting a powerful long-range effort into the top of the net.
Morelato evened the scoring just three minutes later when he headed in a cross from David Radebe.
The result takes Swallows to seventh on the log with eight points. Coach Julio Cesar Leal will be pleased with his tactical decisions, but Birds fans will be hoping he can improve on a draw in their Telkom Knockout game against SuperSport United on Saturday.
