Cape Town – Orlando Pirates and Highlands Park took a point each in Saturday night‘s eagerly fought ABSA PSL contest at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg.

After a period of high pressing by the visitors, Gladwin Shitolo sent a pass back towards Sandilands who attempted to make a first time pass across his goal to the right.

Soon after, goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini was sharp as he raced from his line to prevent Augustine Mulenga from pouncing on a through ball into the area.

Pirates chased the winning goal in the closing stages as Mulenga forced Kapini into a low save around 10 minutes later. With time ticking away, the forward forced another fine save though it ended 1-1 on the night.
