Double At The Death Earns Aces Draw

Absa Premiership 
 
Teams: Aces 2-2 Platinum Stars
 
Date: 21 October 2015
 
Venue: Mbombela Stadium
 
Two goals in stoppage time saw Mpumalanga Black Aces salvage a 2-2 draw against Platinum Stars on Tuesday night.
 
The hosts were dealt a blow early in the clash as they were forced into a substitution in the 12th minute. Aubrey Ngoma picked up an injury and had to be replaced by Tshidiso Tukane.
 
The league leaders were awarded a penalty in the 24th minute when Limbikani Mzava fouled Ndumiso Mabena in the area. Mabena stepped up and slotted the spot-kick. 
 
Collins Mbesuma came agonisingly close to levelling matters when he rattled the Stars post in the 53rd minute.
 
However, Dikwena took control of the clash just before the hour mark. Vincent Kobola fouled Tlou Segolela in the area, handing the visitors another penalty which Mabena converted to complete his brace. 
 
The travelers looked set for another win, but late drama saw Aces come away with a point as Lebogang Manyama headed home in the first minute of stoppage time before Judas Moseamedi added the hosts' second only two minutes later.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Black Aces: Walters, Kobola, Mzava, Ngalo (c), Nonyane, Jayiya, Khuboni, Matsi, Ngoma, Mbesuma, Manyama.
 
Platinum Stars: Coundoul, Gumede, Tshabalala, Nhlapo, Mere, Madubanya, Ng'ambi, Zongo, Segolela, Mabena, Rodgers.
