Ajax Cape Town and SuperSport United played to a 0-0 stalemate in an Absa Premiership encounter at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville on Saturday evening

Both teams had their chances to win the game, but ultimately both had to settle for a point apiece as Matsatsantsa missed an opportunity to climb back to the top of the standings. The Urban Warriors remain 12th.

Having survived an early scare - when Dean Furman almost directed Nathan Paulse's cross into the back of his own net - the home side took control.

Resolute defending and a world class showing by Jody February keeping out Matsatsantsa on several occasions, with the Ajax Cape Town goal-minder producing a top save to deny Masango in the 32nd minute from point-blank range.

When Masango finally had February beaten three minutes later, the crossbar game to the visitors rescue as the first-half ended goalless.

The Urban Warriors came out a better side following the interval and were unlucky not to take the lead themselves in the 61st minute. Bantu Mzwakali's curling effort cannoning off the woodwork.

Mark Mayambela was then brilliantly denied by Reyaad Pieterse in the 76th minute as both teams went in search of the winner.

February on hand once more on the cusp of full-time to keep out Thabo Mnyamen's shot from an acute angle, as both teams eventually settled for a point.
