Teams: Stellenbosch 0-0 TS Galaxy
Date: 02 June 2021
Venue: Danie Craven Stadium
TS Galaxy maintained their position in the top eight after playing to a goalless draw with Stellenbosch on Wednesday evening.
There were incentives for both sides as the hosts looked to secure their safety while Galaxy looked to remain in the hunt for a top-eight finish.
The Rockets made two changes from the win over Orlando Pirates as Wensten van der Linde and Gerald Modisane replaced the suspended duo of Marlon Heugh and Given Msimango.
Despite the stakes on the evening, Neither side were able to carve out any serious openings in the first 20 minutes of the first half at the Dani Craven Stadium.
Stellies were gifted a chance to break the deadlock on 39 minutes when Junior Mendieta pounced on a poor clearance but his strike was turned away by a fine save from Van der Linde.
Steve Barker opted for a switch after the hour mark as Mendieta made way for the influential Lelethu Skelem as they went in search of an opening goal.
Sibusiso Mthethwa had a chance to put the home side ahead with 20 minutes left on the clock, but he could not steer his header on target from Jaylen Adams' cross.
