JOHANNESBURG – Baroka FC showed character to salvage a point in playing to a 2-2 draw with Cape Town City in a Premiership match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium, in Polokwane, on Saturday afternoon.
City had the better of the opening few minutes and deservedly took the lead in the 22nd minute when Keanu Cupido headed home from a cross delivered by winger Bradley Ralani.
The visitors doubled their lead eight minutes later, when Kermit Erasmus unleashed a power effort from outside the box.
However, this brought out the best from Baroka, who replied with a well-taken goal from Mduduzi Mdantsane in the 32nd minute.
Just when City thought they would hold the advantage through to halftime, Tshediso Patjie got the better of goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh in the 41st minute.
