Mamelodi Sundowns pulled off a stunning comeback courtesy of a Peter Shalulile brace to snatch a 2-1 victory over Black Leopards at the Thohoyandou Stadium on Wednesday.
Lidoda Duvha looked to be on course for a famous upset but Downs had other ideas.
Ovidy Karuru put the home side in the lead in the 46th minute but the lead was short-lived as the visitors equalised through Shalulile in the 64th minute.
Just when it looked like the teams would settle for a share of the spoils, Shalulile grabbed a late injury-time winner with seconds remaining on the clock.
Even more impressive is that the Tshwane giants did it with a man down after Mothibi Mvala was sent off in the 66th minute.
With the late goal, Sundowns did to Leopards what Swallows did to them in their previous game. Swallows scored a last gasp goal to snatch a draw against the defending champions last week.
With the three points in the bag, Manqoba Mngqithi’s men were able to snatch their run of three consecutive draws.
Leopards’ co-coaches Lehlohonolo Seema and Morgan Shivambu got a rude awakening in their first game in charge.
The duo took over the team after Dylan Kerr was fired on Monday.
The Venda club remains in the relegation zone alongside neighbours Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila. They both have nine points.
