Ndumiso Mabena got the game's first opportunity in the ninth minute after good build up play led to the forward getting a shot away at close range, only to be denied by SuperSport shot-stopper Reyaad Pieterse.

The hosts finally broke the deadlock in the 14th minute through a Victor Letsoalo strike after SuperSport failed to deal with Celtic's impressive passing.

The visitors thought they had equalised after an effort from Jeremy Brockie who found the back of the net in the 16th minute, only to be denied by the linesman flag for offside.

Thuso Phala was denied an opportunity to equalise after Patrick Tignyemb saved his effort from close range to maintain his side's lead after 24 minutes.

Sipho Mbule's strike in the 31st minute went wide of goal ans proved to be the final opportunity of the half  as the hosts went into the break leading 1-0.

Brockie looked sharp in the 46th minute as he latched onto a cross and headed it towards goal but was unfortunate to see effort sailed just wide of the upright.

A quick one-two between Brockie and Aubrey Modiba saw the latter try his luck from range, but he failed to hit the target as United piled on the pressure.

Brockie got another opportunity with his head in the 72nd minute but his effort went wide of the bar yet again.

The equaliser finally came in the 74th minute when substitute Darren Smith managed to head home from close range to mark his SuperSport debut with a goal.

Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, but they were unable to carve out a chance and had to settle for a share of the spoils.

Lol tjeses fools can't see SSU is missing clear cut chances. when SSU whips ur big teams in the New year after break,you will all want to fire ur coaches. Tinkler is a brilliant tactician. Pirates supporters must stop crying abt Tinkler. we all know how you chased him away from ur club n now he has won 2 Cups. you have won nothing.
