Mamelodi Sundowns held log leaders Kaizer Chiefs to their second Premiership draw of the season after a hard-fought 1-1 stalemate at FNB Stadium this afternoon.

Teko Modise broke the deadlock nine minutes after the half-time break for his second Premiership goal of the season, but George Lebese cancelled out his stunning curled effort shortly after to salvage a point for Amakhosi.

Chiefs have dropped just four points after 11 games and remain in control at the top of the table.

Twelve points and four league spots separated the teams heading into the clash, but the point allowed Pitso Mosimane’s side to climb temporarily up to second place with 17 points, along with three other teams.

The draw was the fourth in a row for Sundowns, who last won on September 28 against Polokwane City, and a second point for Amakhosi, who remain unbeaten in the league and move to 29 points.

Both had their chances to win it but it ended in a share of the spoils as Sundowns walked away the happier of the two, having taken points off their Soweto rivals, while ensuring they keep in touch with the top of the table.
