Mbaeva was in fine form again when Kurt Lentjies headed an effort on target, saving it well after the ball came in from Zulu.
 
The embattled goalkeeper needed to make another top save shortly before the break when a free kick from Deolin Mekoa found Mokate who headed on target.
 
On the stroke of half-time the visitors' job became tougher as Mekoa was shown a red card after tempers flared, resulting in a yellow cards for Lentjies and Cele.
 
United's best chance came in the 56th minute. Lenjies curled in a corner and Onyango was in position to head the ball onto the bar.
 
The visitors continued to push for the equaliser and were rewarded in the 71st minute as the influential Lentjies found the back of the net with a super strike.
 
At the other end of the pitch Arrows almost netted a winner when Ramagalela found himself with a chance to shoot, but Onyango made a clutch block.
