Stars were the first to show attacking intent when they tested Patrick Tignyemb in the seventh minute through a shot from Vuyo Mere from outside the box.

The best part of the half saw teams in possession of the ball, but neither doing much to test the opposition goalkeeper.

Midway through the half, Dikwena’s Brian Mwila used his strength to create space and got a shot away but his effort failed to hit the target.

That proved to be the story of the half, as a disappointing first-half ended with the teams tied at 0-0.

Veselin Jelusic attempted to bring in a bit of creativity in his attack by introducing Kabelo Mahlasela in place of Jacky Motshegwa in the 55th minute.

Mwila had an attempt denied by Tignyemb in the 61st minute, as the game still lacked the necessary energy to create goal-scoring opportunities.

Mere should have put his team ahead in the 70th minute, after a flick on from Robert Ng’ambi put him through on goal, but his attempt went over the bar from close-range.

Second-half substitute Tshegofatso Mabasa, forced a fine save from Mbongeni Mzimela in the 80th minute, as the goalkeeper parried the stinging effort out for a corner.

A ball over the Celtic defence by Mere, found Ng’ambi in the box but the striker’s effort went wide of the upright with 10 minutes remaining. 

That proved to be the last bit of action as neither team found the back of the net and could only share the spoils on the night.
