Result: TS Galaxy 1-1 Golden Arrows
Date: 28 November 2020
Venue: Mbombela Stadium
TS Galaxy maintained their unbeaten record in the DStv Premiership this season after netting a late equaliser to deny Golden Arrows victory at Mbombela Stadium.
Galaxy made four changes, with Gaona Modisane, Khayelihle Shozi, Bathusi Aubaas and Sihle Nduli coming to the fore while Arrows were boosted by the return of Knox Mutizwa, Ntsako Makhubela and Mthokozisi Dube.
The Rockets were on the front foot early on and they were unfortunate not to go a goal ahead in the eighth minute after Nkosinathi Sibisi cleared Khaya Shozi's goal-bound shot off the line.
Karabo Tshepe had a good chance to break the deadlock for the hosts in the 25th minute after getting past the Arrows defence but his shot was smothered by goalkeeper Sifiso Mlungwana at his near post.
Mandla Ncikazi's charges were better organised in the closing phase of the first stanza, as they limited Galaxy to long range strikes and the first stanza ended without goals.
Gladwin Shitolo came close to breaking the deadlock for Abafana Bes'thende 11 minutes from a rebound inside the box but he was denied by the woodwork.
Pule Mmodi eventually gave Arrows the lead in the last 18 minutes after intercepting a back pass and slotted a strike past goalkeeper Wensten van der Linde.
There was drama in the end as Mokete Mogaila snatched the equaliser for the Rockets in the last minute and the sides shared the spoils, both remaining unbeaten.
