Polokwane City concede a goal in the sixth minute of added time to drop two points in the Absa Premiership after playing to a 2-2 draw against Baroka FC at the New Peter Mokaba stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The point does see Polokwane move up the league table into seventh place with ten points, four adrift of the league leaders, while Baroka FC are in ninth place with eight points.

The home side made a good start with Marshall Munetsi tapping home from close range at a corner-kick to give Baroka the lead in the sixth minute, 1-0.

Polokwane, though, quickly hit back with Rodney Ramagalela levelling matters in the 14th minute after dribbling his way into the box and firing beyond the Baroka shot-stopper, 1-1.

Five minutes before the break Munetsi nearly gave Baroka FC the lead again, but his header from a inch perfect cross was well-saved by the Polokwane keeper.

Rise and Shine came out firing in the second half and took the lead on the hour mark when Puleng Tlolane met a Ramagalela cross with a diving header to find the back of the net, 2-1.

Polokwane looked to be heading to victory until Tshepiso Lietsisa found the corner of the goal with a perfectly placed free-kick in the 96th minute, 2-2.
