Former Flames coach Kinnah Phiri’s Free State Stars side pulled the biggest comeback of the PSL matches played in midweek as they came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 away to Supersport United on Wednesday evening.
Stars were 2-0 down in the first 10 minutes but with 10 minutes to go they scored twice to earn a point from the match.
The result saw Free State move out of the relegation zone to 12th position with 19 points from 18 games.
Defender Limbikani Mzava played a full match and was so solid in defence for Bloemfontein Celtic as they frustrated log leaders Kaizer Chiefs to a goalless draw. Mzava, who was making his eight PSL appearance of the season also saw a yellow card for a foul on Simphiwe Tshabalala.
Mzava’s countryman Gabadinho Mhango did not make it in the Celtic’s match day squad.
Midfielder Robert Ng’ambi was also out of the match day squad for Platinum Stars as they drew 1-all with Mpumalanga Black Aces.
Esau Kanyenda came off the bench to win a last minute free kick for Polokwane City from which they scored the equaliser to draw 1-1 with Ajax Cape Town, who had Robin Ngalande as unused substitute.
On Tuesday Atusaye Nyondo scored his fifth goal of the season to help University of Pretoria beat Chippa United 2-1.
