Posted: 7 December 2016 Time: 18:34
Highlands Park were held to a 1-1 draw by Bloemfontein Celtic at the Makhulong Stadium on Wednesday evening.
The two sides met again in Tembisa after their fixture on November 30 had to be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
The Lions of the North drew first blood as Mvala headed home from Franklin Cale's free-kick to hand the hosts the lead in the 21st minute.
However, Celtic responded on the other side of half-time, with Mpho Maruping bagging the equaliser as he got onto the end of Deon Hotto's corner in the 68th minute.
The result sees Highlands' winless run stretched to eight matches, but lifts them off the foot of the table and above Free State Stars into 15th place.
Meanwhile, the point is enough to help Phunya Sele Sele move above Baroka into 12th place, with 11 points from as many games.
