Maritzburg United came from a goal down to salvage a 1-1 draw against Free State Stars at Goble Park stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Goodman Dlamini opened the scoring for the hosts in the 54th minute, however, Kurt Lentjies grabbed the equaliser in the 86th minute.
The two sides were locked in a tight affair as the first half ended goalless.
It remained that way in the second half, but Dlamini was able to capitalise 10 minutes in as he slotted home.
The Team of Choice refused to drop their heads, though, as captain Lentjies led from the front to rescue a point for his team from the penalty spot.
The result sees Maritburg move up to 10th place with five points, while Free State Stars leapfrog Ajax Cape Town into 14th with three points from six matches.
