Former CAPS United forward and 2017 Golden boot winner Dominic Chungwa took to the stage to announce his arrival when he scored a beauty from inside the box 19 minutes into the match to put Polokwane City on the lead.
The Limpopo based side however failed to hold on to the lead 4 minutes before regulation time and the host equalised.
The match ended 1 all.
In another ABSA Premiership match, a brace from Khama Billiat and a solitary strike from Sibusiso Vilakazi saw Sundowns thrash Dikwena 3-0 on Saturday evening.
Masandawana coach Pitso Mosimane indicated that they are taking lessons about controlling the match when they are leading.
“We dealt with the first half very well because the second half was slightly different. They reacted in the second half they were pushing us. But we reacted well on the breaks although we didn’t use our chances,” Mosimane said.
“I’m happy that we kept zero behind [clean-sheet] because our problem has not been scoring goals. Our problem was to keep zero behind and we kept zero behind [clean-sheet]. We’re scoring which is good. Khama was playing as a winger, he scored two goals which is good.
“You have to close Vuyo [Mere] down he’s smart he’s the one who’s distributing the ball. So “Mshishi” [Themba Zwane] had to work very hard that’s why he was quiet. I told him he had to sacrifice for the team and not be all over the place like he is always over the place and he did a good job on Vuyo,” he added.
