NELSPRUIT – A pulsating league encounter saw the lead changing several times before the dust settled on a 3-3 draw between SuperSport United and Cape Town City at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday night.
It took just four minutes for the tone to be set when Sipho Mbule clinically rifled home a volley, following a clever chested assist from Bradley Grobler.
SuperSport’s advantage was, however, only to last for four minutes as City hit back through Thabo Nododa, who latched onto a Kermit Erasmus cross and was given the time to take a couple of touches in the box before squeezing in a low shot into the far corner; 1-1 after only eight minutes of action.
The breathtaking start continued as the Citizens went ahead in the 18th minute when Bradley Ralani’s perfectly weighted cross was met by Erasmus with a downward header into the bottom corner of the net.
Incredibly, the goal-scoring spree continued when just five minutes later, Grobler profited on a mistake by defender Keanu Cupido in clinical fashion to level the score at 2-2.
