The hosts eventually gathered momentum and broke the deadlock with 11 minutes remaining of the first after Aubrey Modiba tapped home a cross from Onismor Bhasera against the run of play.

However, equalised three minutes before the halftime break thanks to Chris Katjiukua, who poked home a corner from Lesedi Kapinga.

Tembo's men were quick to go forward early in the second stanza and their pressure paid off in the 61st minute after Thamsanqa Gabuza converted subtitute Jamie Webber's cross from the right.

United did not sitting back on their lead as attacker Evans Rusike came on for Modiba wit 17 minutes remaining to utilise the Zimbwabwean's pace on counter-attacks.

However, Matsatsantsa conceded a penalty with three minutes remaining, which Pentjie Zulu converted to secure a point for the Limpopo outfit.
