Free State Stars extended their unbeaten run in the Absa Premiership to three matches following a 1-1 draw away to Black Leopards at Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The points leaves Ea Lla Koto in eighth spot on the log standings, having recovered following a slow start to the campaign.

Lidoda Duvha remain in 12th spot and lingering a mere two points above the relegation zone having won just one game in their last eight league matches.

Lidoda Duvha opened the scoring in the 28th minute through Eden Nene following a sustained spell of pressure. The midfielder nodded home Lesadi Kapinga's cross for his first goal of the campaign, to give the hosts a narrow lead at the break.

Stars improved following the interval and duly levelled matters just shot of the hour mark. Congolese midfielder Cesaire Gandze netting the goal for the visitors.

Either team could've won the game in the closing stages with both pressing forward for the winner, but neither could add to their tally as they ultimately settled for a point apiece.
