Now, both teams were expected to raise their game, and do whatever they could to try and get three points but it wasn’t to be as the game ended in a dull draw.

Eric Tinkler had to contend with the absence of goalkeeper Hugo Marques who is set to leave City due to pressing family issues as reported on The South African website.
