Nkoana Rescues Urban Warriors
Result: Chippa United 1-1 Ajax Cape Town
Date: 29 August 2014
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium
Thabiso Nkoana's late strike cancelled out Mxolisi Ntshingila's opener, as Chippa United and Ajax Cape Town played out to a 1-1 draw at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
The opening stages proved to be a dull affair with neither side creating any meaningful opportunities.
The first chance arrived in the 21st minute as Annsi Jaakola did well to deny Thamsanqa Sangweni from distance.
Sangweni tried his luck again four minutes later, but his effort went well wide of Jaakola's goal.
Jaakola proved to be the busier of the two keepers, this time denying Mbenyane from giving Chippa the lead in the 50th minute.
It was then Ajax's turn to have a couple efforts at goal, with both Tashreeq Morris and Travis Graham going close in quick succession.
Roger de Sa rang the changes in the hope of getting a winner, bringing on Franklin Cale and Thabiso Nkoana.
However, it was the home side that broke the deadlock, as substitute Mxolisi Ntshingila popped up in the 82nd minute to give his side the lead.
Just when it looked as if Chippa were going to walk away with all three points, Nkoana managed to slot home the equaliser for the Cape side.
Here's how they lined up:
Chippa United: Dauda, Mvelase, Zulu, Nene, Sambo, Sangweni, Mbenyane, Komane, Zulu, Twala, Cele
Ajax Cape Town: Jaakola, Allie, Coetzee, Mobara, Lebusa, Graham, Morris, Scott, Paulse, Ngalande, Dolly
