SuperSport United haven’t registered a win in their last five DSTV Premiership matches. They played out to a one-all draw with Black Leopards who are still rooted to the bottom of the table, on Saturday at the Thohoyandou Stadium.
The struggling Lidoda Duvha have collected just 15 points from their 24 matches.
Leopards took the game to the visitors early in the match, with their captain Ramagalela dictating terms. However, their final touch left a lot to be desired.
Matsatsantsa also had a chance to ask questions, only for Jamie Webber to balloon the ball over the crossbar. Leopards were counting on the speed of Ovidy Karuru and Ramagalela upfront.
However, 18 minutes into the match, SuperSport players were the ones celebrating a goal. Lidoda Duvha were not to be outdone in their own backyard. They eventually found the equaliser following a string of fine passes.

SuperSport won a set-piece early in the second half but nothing came of it. Instead, Leopards won back possession and launched a counterattack. Karuru was unfortunate not to complete his brace from a corner-kick.
Midfielder Guily Manziba made a brilliant solo run but he only managed to shoot over the crossbar, to the frustration of coach Kaitano Tembo.
The Zimbabwean coach introduced Bradley Grobler for Webber and the talisman immediately made his presence felt.
Deep into stoppage time, Themba Ndlovu thought he had scored the winner for Leopards but in vain.
The final score: Black Leopards 1, SuperSport United 1.
