Former Mamelodi Sundowns forwards Dino Ndlovu and Nyasha Mushekwi combined to ensure that Zhejiang Greentown's hopes of playing in the Chinese Super League (CSL) next season remained intact.

Mushekwi and Ndlovu were both in action on Wednesday afternoon as they were named in the starting line-up for Greentown's highly anticipated CSL promotion play-off against top-flight side Wuhan Zall.

With a spot in next season's Super League campaign up for grabs, things got off to the worst possible start for the side from Hangzhou, who found themselves trailing 2-0 at half-time courtesy of goals from Li Hang and Ivorian striker Jean Kouassi.

However, the former Masandawana duo then combined in the second stanza to help pull off a remarkable comeback for Greentown, and ensure that the club's promotion prospects remained intact ahead of the return fixture on Sunday.

Mushekwi sparked the turnaround in the 55th minute when he pulled a goal back after being sent through by Ndlovu, before the Bafana Bafana striker snatched a late equaliser from the penalty spot in the 99th minute of the encounter to secure a 2-2 draw.
