Title-chasing Pirates, strugglers Ajax draw


A thrilling night of premiershi­p football at the Cape Town Stadium produced a 2-2 draw between title-chasing Orlando Pirates and relegation-threatened Ajax Cape Town. Ajax were left to rue missed chances, forcing them to settle for one point instead of three, although it could also be argued that on the balance of play, over 90 minutes, the Buccaneers did enough to have won the game. The first half was an action-packed and exciting affair. In Atteridgev­ille, SuperSport United came from a goal down to grab a 2-1 victory over strugglers Chippa United in their premiershi­p clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium last night. Chippa’s William Twala netted a firsthalf penalty before Bevan Fransman equalised and Bradley Grobler added the second to secure the vital win for SuperSport, who extend their unbeaten league run to eight matches.
