Date: 4 February 2018

The home side started the better of the two sides with the first effort on goal in the sixth minute after Dominic Chungwa showed great control inside the box to bring down a cross and shoot, but his 16-yard attempt was brilliantly saved by Jody February.

The Ajax keeper was at his best again in the 23rd minute when Walter Musona burst into the box, but he was thwarted in a one-on-one with February.

Ajax’s first decent effort on goal came on the half hour mark when Tendai Ndoro found himself in space on the edge of the box, but his powerful strike shaved the wrong side of the woodwork.

Polokwane should really have scored five minutes later when Thapelo Tshilo broke down the right and squared for Chungwa, but he scuffed his shot wide from close range with an empty net at his mercy.

Ajax had the last say of the half with Ndoro meeting a pin-point cross from Fagrie Lakay in injury time, but he shot inches over from 14-yards out.

The half ended all-square.

Polokwane took the second half by the scruff of the neck and came close to scoring in the 59th minute when Mondli Miya unleashed a powerful long-range shot, but February was on hand to tip it over the crossbar.

Ten minutes later the home side did take the lead when a wonderful passing move concluded with Musona finding the back of the net with a clinical shot from the edge of the box, 1-0.

Ajax were not going to go down without a fight and hit back in the 81st minute when Lakay was set-up by a superb pass from Tashreeq Morris and he made no mistake from close range, 1-1.

Neither side could find a winner in the final ten minutes of the match as the two teams settled for a share of the spoils.
