Arrows started well and had the first shot on goal in the eight minute, courtesy of a long range strike from Nduduzo Sibiya, but his effort was well-saved by the Maritzburg keeper.

The home side continued to pile on the pressure and came close to the opening goal in the 25th minute, when Velemseni Ndwandwe met a pass from Knox Mutizwa, but he was thwarted by the Maritzburg keeper once again.

The away team offered very little in attack throughout the opening half, but did managing a stinging 18-yard shot on goal in the 39th minute thanks to Evans Rusike, but he saw his effort brilliantly saved by the Arrows keeper.

The half ended 0-0.

Maritzburg came out a rejuvenated side at the start of the second half with Rusike breaking through on goal two minutes in, but he failed to beat Nkosingiphile Gumede in a one-on-one.

In the 55th minute some swift counter-attacking play by Arrows, saw Kudakwashe Mahachi drive into the box before unleashing a well-stuck shot, but he saw his effort cleared off the goalline.

Ten minutes later Maritzburg were on the attack when Rusike met a cross from the left with a strong header, but his effort went just wide of the target.

The next decent effort on goal only came in the 81st minute, when Siphelele Magubane unleashed a long range thunderbolt, but it sailed over the Maritzburg goal.

Both sides pushed hard for a winner in the dying minutes of the match, but neither could find the back of the net as the match ended goalless.
