CAPE TOWN – Cape Town City's winless league run was extended to four matches after Golden Arrows struck in the 87th minute to secure a 1-1 draw at the Cape Town Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
In a tightly-fought encounter, Kermit Erasmus' 52nd minute goal had looked to have earned City a much-needed win, but it wasn't to be for Benni McCarthy's team as Knox Mutizwa fired in a late penalty.
The first half saw both sides unable to create much in the way of clearcut chances, although with that said, there were certainly some openings.
The first opportunity of the game fell to Arrows in the ninth minute, when Nduduzo Sibiya's shot from a tight angle was kept out by the legs of City keeper Peter Leeuwenburgh, with the home defence doing well to throw bodies on the line in the resultant goalmouth scramble.
City had to wait until the 29th minute for their first sniff at goal, which saw Riyaad Norodien's swerving freekick parried to safety by Arrows keeper Edmore Sibanda.
