Chippa United surrender lead to draw at SuperSport United

Azola Matrose opened the scoring for Chippa United but SuperSport United denied them all three points via a Gamphani Lungu late penalty.

As a result, both teams settled for a share of the spoils, and both Chippa and SuperSport didn’t even move from their respective positions on the DStv Premiership log.

SuperSport United remain seventh on the standings with 31 points from 24 games while Chippa United remain 13th with 22 points from the same number of games.

Chippa United started the game a lot more motivated than their Tshwane opponents, perhaps because General Manager Morgan Mmamila was sitting on the bench.

And that motivation was turned into a goal and a lead five minutes before the interval as Matrose fired past Ronwen Williams.

The visitors went into the half-time break with their heads up, and Kaitano Tembo knew that he needed a different approach in the second half.

The second 45 minutes saw SuperSport United push high up the field in search of an equaliser, giving Chippa United some defensive work to do.

Matsatsantsa, however, appeared to be relying more on crosses and set-pieces, including forcing Chippa United into conceding corners.

That approach went on until Chippa United were forced to give away a penalty in the 87th minute – and Lungu stepped up to level matters for SuperSport United.

And that’s how it ended at the Lucas Moripe Stadium, but Chippa United would kick themselves for letting SuperSport United off the hook.
