Chippa United came from a goal down to claim a 1-1 draw in a fiercely-contested Premiership encounter at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday night.
In a fast-paced game, the KZN side had the better of the early exchanges and took the lead through Knox Mutizwa midway through the first half.
But Chippa, who went on to enjoy the better chances in the second half, equalised through Lerato Manzini 20 minutes from time.
Arrows stamped their authority on the match from the kickoff, and after Danny Venter had sounded a warning with a ninth-minute shot which he dragged marginally wide, the Durban team drew first blood.
Divine Lunga stole the ball off Zitha Macheke, before cutting it back for Mutizwa to fire clinically into the roof of the net from six yards.
