Maritzburg United fought back to hold Free State Stars 1-1 in an Absa Premiership game played at the James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney on Saturday afternoon.

The draw took Ea Lla Koto up to spot number 13 on the league table, while the Team of Choice moves to position 10.

The best chance of the first-half went to Sheldon Van Wyk four minutes before half-time, but he was denied by Stars goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni.

Maritzburg midfielder Van Wyk was replaced by former Kaizer Chiefs star Abia Nale just before the second-half as the visitors looked to grab the lead.

But was the home side who scored first when Goodman Dlamini fired Stars into the lead in the 54th minute much to the delight of the home crowd.

The Team of Choice then pressed Ea Lla Koto for the equalizing goal. It finally came in the 84th minute when Kurt Lentjies made it 1-1 from the spot-kick.

In the end, Stars and Maritzburg drew 1-1 on the day.
