PSL Absa Premiership match report Cape Town City vs Bidvest Wits

Posted: 19 April 2017 Time: 18:28

Log leaders Cape Town City were held to a 1-1 draw by title rivals Bidvest Wits in the Mother City on Wednesday night.

Wits striker Phakamani Mahlambi opened the scoring with a penalty in the fifth minute after going down in the box under a challenge from Thamsanqa Mkhize.

However, defender Tshepo Gumede equalised in the 71st minute with his first topflight goal by nodding home a free-kick from Aubrey Ngoma at Cape Town Stadium.

In a contest of few chances, Mkhize threatened to score around the half-hour mark, but his header hit the side-netting following a delivery from City talisman Lebogang Manyama.

Soon after Judas Moseamedi failed to direct his header on target after a fumble left Wits goalkeeper Darren Keet stranded.

The result leaves Eric Tinkler's side on 46 points from 24 matches - a point ahead of Wits and Kaizer Chiefs, although the Students boast two games in hand.

Champions Mamelodi Sundowns are fourth with 44 points from 22 fixtures following a 1-0 win over SuperSport United on the same night.
