Citizens secure a point at Arrows


Golden Arrows and Cape Town City settled for a share of the spoils in DStv Premiership action on Saturday afternoon.

Velemseni Ndwandwe and Pule Mmodi came back into the Arrows line-up while the Citizens recalled Thamsanqa Mkhize, Fagrie Lakay and Ioannis Potouridis.

It was the visitors who got scoring underway after just four minutes when Nigerian midfielder Abdul Ajagun bagged his second goal in three games with a close-range finish.

City's lead did not last for too long as Arrows were back on level terms in the 13th minute through Ndwandwe's seventh league goal of the campaign.

The Citizens ended the half the stronger of the two sides and should've been ahead going to the break but Aubrey Ngoma and Terrence Mashego were unable to find the target.

It was Arrows' chance to squander a big chance after the break when Mmodi was unable to add to his four goals for the season after firing wide from Divine Lunga's cross.

It was all City in the latter stages of the second half, with Mashego seeing a header cleared off the line whule Fagrie Lakay was denied by the crossbar late on, as the encounter finished all square.

Arrows: Mlungwana, Sibisi, Lunga, Zuke, M.Dube, Parusnath, Shitolo, Makhubela, Ndwandwe, M.Gumede, Mmodi.
