Promotion playoffs: match ends in goalless draw

2013-05-30 00:00

THE Promotion Playoff game between Chippa United and Santos ended in a 0-0 draw at a wet Philippi Stadium last night.

The first half saw both sides battling to come to terms with the rainy conditions and the wet pitch, with a result that possession was turned over regularly and both sides struggled to create goal opportunities.

With 15 minutes to go, Chippa were down to 10 men after Sali was sent off for retaliating against an over-the-top challenge by Tyren Arendse. Arendse got a yellow card. The remainder of the game deteriorated into a foul fest with play disjointed and no further chances on goal.
