Elvis Chipezeze continued his encouraged form in goal for Baroka FC as they held defending Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns to a goalless draw at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville on Tuesday night.
The point moves Bakgaga up to twelfth place on the log standings although Sundowns continue being in third location, 5 points behind Orlando Pirates.
Sundowns threatened early on by Hlompho Kekana in the third minute, but the Brazilians skipper was denied by Chipezeze, who carried on from in which he remaining off on the weekend.
The hosts continued to probe, but found it ever more complicated to defeat Chipezeze, who made a further superior save in the thirty fifth minute to deny Jeremy Brockie, whose rasping effort looked destined for the back again of the net.
Baroka almost hit the front against the run of play on the cusp of half-time. Jemondre Dickens carved by the Sundowns defence just before attempting a square ball to an unmarked Tebogo Sodi, but Maboe presented a well timed interception to deny the people the direct at the crack.
Chipezeze was proving a complicated to defeat once more and pulled off a further fantastic save 5 minutes into the second-50 percent to preserve out Brockie’s arrowing header.
Baroka experienced a late chance to steal all a few points in included time, but Mduduzi Mdantsane was desperately unfortunate to see his glancing header fly inches wide of goal, as both of those sides sooner or later settled for a point apiece.
