Ajax Snatch A Point At Arrows

Absa Premiership
 
Result: Golden Arrows 1-1 Ajax Cape Town
 
Date: 15 April 2017
 
Venue: Prince Magogo Stadium
 
Ajax Cape Town snatched a point at Golden Arrows, as the two sides played out a 1-1 in an Absa Premiership clash on Saturday afternoon.
 
 
Ajax looked the livelier of the two sides in the opening exchanges, most notably Mark Mayambela who was causing a few problems in the final third.
 
However, it was Arrows who broke the deadlock in the 13th minute as Mngwengwe fired into an empty net, after Ajax goalkeeper Jody February failed to deal with a corner.
 
The Urban Warriors nearly leveled matters in the 27th minute, but Gumede produced a stunning save to keep out Mayambela's effort from the edge of the box.
 
However, that proved to be the visitors' final chance of the half, as they found it tough to break down the Arrows defence.
 
Nonetheless, the score remained 1-0 to the hosts as the sides went into the halftime break.
 
Ajax opted for a change at the start of the second half, as Mdabuka made way for Nathan Paulse.
 
The visitors enjoyed most of the possession in the second half, although they were let down by the decision-making in the final third.
 
Stanley Menzo's charges should have taken the lead in the 66th minute as Thabo Mosadi broke into the box, before dragging a low effort inches wide of the upright.
 
Ajax eventually leveled matters in the 77th minute as Prince Nxumalo powered home a header at the far post.
 
Both sides made a change in the closing stages as Ajax introduced Roderick Kabwe, while Arrows brought on Sibusiso Sibeko.
 
Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, with Ajax twice going close in stoppage time, but the score remained 1-1 at the full-time whistle.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Arrows: 30. February, 20. Isaacs, 27. Pietersen, 3. Coetzee, 5. Lebusa, 6. Graham, 23. Mosadi, 13. Margeman , 15. Nxumalo, 8. Mdabuka, 22. Mayambela
 
Ajax: 32. Gumede, 14. Dube, 20. Mathiane, 21. Mngwengwe, 13. Mthiyane, 26. Phiri, 30. Hlongwane, 11. Mahachi, 25. Sibiya, 41. Lamola, 19. Mutizwa.
