Golden Arrows played to an action packed draw with Kaizer Chiefs t Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The first 45 saw no action as far as goals were concerned but it did not lack entertaining play from the home side as they took the game to Chiefs from the first whistle.
The attacking play was solid and the determination to score was clear. Arrows had a number of decent plays up the wing, with Conco doing well to get behind the defense and feeding the balls into the box, but just lacked in the finishing and could not break the final line of the Amakhozi defense.
Arrows’ best chance came from a Gumede attempt in the 10th minute which went over the bar.
Chiefs had a number of chances to score too, Castro missed a header as it hit the woodwork and then pushed in the final minute of the first half but were denied by a great save from Mlungwana. This saw the teams going to the break with no goals on the scoreboard.
The second half was completely different! Arrows did not seem to have as much of the ball as they did in the first half. They were awarded a penalty in the 49th minute after Nkombelo was taken down in the box by Manyama. Conco made no mistake in his conversion and so began the goal scoring for the half.
Billiat and Castro started putting more pressure on the defense and managed to get behind the line a couple of times.
Castro managed a brace for his efforts, scoring with a header in the 58th minute and then finding the back of the net again the 65th, giving the visitors the lead.
Arrows showed great determination and never gave up. Although they did not enjoy the possession they made good decisions when we had the ball on boot. In the 70th minute Sibiya, who had come onto the park just minutes before, curled a great ball in past Khune to equalize which means that points were shared.
