A stubborn Cape Town City side held Orlando Pirates to a 0-0 draw in an Absa Premiership game played at the Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday evening.

The Buccaneers stays at the top of the league standings despite the draw, while City climb up to sixth spot on the log.

The visitors did most of the attacking in the opening stages of the league encounter, but they were unable to open the Bucs backline.

Aubrey Ngoma unleashed a powerful shot in the 21st minute, but the City midfielder's attempt was well-blocked by Pirates defender Justice Chabalala.

The best chance in the first-half went to Pirates winger Riyaad Norodien inside the City box, but his shot was well-saved by goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters just before half-time.

The visitors began the second-half lively with Ebrahim Seedat forcing Pirates keeper Brighton Mhlongo into a low save from range in the 48th minute.

The shot-stopper then made two more good saves to deny City duo Lebogang Manyama and Judas Moseamedi towards the hour mark.

Although, both sides launched late attacks in search of a winning goal, they were unable to find it and they drew 0-0 on the night.
