Cape Town City 1 - 1 Highlands Park

Cape Town City came from behind with 10 men to force a 1-1 draw with Highlands Park in an Absa Premiership clash at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday.

The Citizens were reduced to ten men as early as the 18th minute when Kermit Erasmus was shown a red card for a ridiculous kick on Mothobi Mvala.

Tendai Ndoro gave the visitors the lead in the 56th minute but Craig Martin made sure the hosts took a point from the game, heading home with six minutes of the contest remaining.

Both teams started the game slowly but Erasmus' moment of madness came when he won a free-kick near the center circle.

Mvala tried to stop the forward from the taking quick one and Erasmus proceeded to lash out, striking the opposing player near the thigh with a swinging boot which left the referee no option but to send him off.

Despite being a man down, the home side pushed on as Zukile Kewuti failed to hit the target with a header after being picked out by left-back Ebrahim Seedat.

The Lions of the North finally took advantage of being a man to the good when Ndoro pounced on a defensive error to slot past Peter Leeuwenburgh in the Cape Town City goal ten minutes after the half-time interval.

The hosts though did show character, as they have done all season, as they fought bravely for the equaliser.

Their endeavor paid off when Martin executed a fine diving header in the 84th minute after a pin-point cross from Bradley Ralani.

Neither side could find the killer goal towards the end and had to settle for a share of the spoils.

Both teams remain where they are on the PSL table with Cape Town City in fifth and Highlands Park in 8th position.
