The Citizens were eager to back in action after their last encounter with Bloemfontein Celtic was suspended in the first half after a pitch invasion.
 
However the Citizens were dealt a blow 18 minutes in to the encounter when Erasmus was shown a straight red card for kicking out at Highlands midfielder Mothobi Mvala.
 
 
Despite being a man down, the host continued to push for an opening goal as Ebrahim Seedat picked out Zukile Kewuti, who failed to steer his header on target.
 
The Lions of the North almost went ahead with their first opening seven minutes before the break, but good defending from the hosts saw an effort cleared off the line.
 
The second half got off to a lively start as Surprise Ralani did well to pick out Kewuti whose header was denied by the woodwork inside the opening five minutes.
 
The deadlock was eventually broken 10 minutes into the second half, with Tendai Ndoro pouncing on a defensive effort before sending a fine curling into the back of the net.
 
In an attempt to claw their way back in to the encounter, Benni McCarthy threw on top scorer Siphelele Mthembu for Keanu Cupido with 20 minutes remaining.
 
The hosts managed to find the equaliser with six minutes remaining through Craig Martin's close-range header following a cross from Ralani.
 
Neither side could find a winning goal in the latter stages of the spoil and had to settle for a share of the spoils in Cape Town.
 

Here's how they lined up:

CT City: 1. Leeuwengburgh, 2. Mkhize, 12. Fielies, 15. Cupido, 6. Seedat, 38. Kewuti, 11. Ralani, 18. David, 21. Mokeke, 30. Martin, 33. Erasmus.
