Chippa United and Platinum Stars drew 1-1 in an Absa Premiership game played at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium played on Friday night.

As a result the Chilli Boys climbed up to fourth on the league table, while Dikwena also moved up to position ten on the log.

The home side started the match brightly and they were awarded a penalty in the 12th minute which was well-saved by Stars keeper Mbongeni Mzimela.

The Chilli Boys never lost home as they took the lead through Thembinkosi Lorch who fired home to make it 1-0 to the home side.

After the half-time, Stars pushed forward in numbers as they looked to level matters and they also introduced Ndumiso Mabena, a striker.

The move paid off as Robert Ng'ambi snatched the equalizing goal with a good header on the hour-mark to silence the home crowd and also make it 1-1.

In 90th minute, Chippa striker Lerato Manzini had a great chance to give his side the victory, but he missed a penalty and the match ended in a draw.
