Cape Town - Baroka FC and Bloemfontein Celtic played to an entertaining 2-2 draw in their Absa PSL clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Phunya Sele Sele took the lead in the 26th minute when Tshegofatso Mabaso beat home keeper Elvis Chipezeze after a long ball over the Baroka defence.

The hosts were level 10 minutes later but it was one of Celtic's own players, Mpusana Tani, that put the ball into his own net after trying to clear from danger.

Baroka then had momentum and went in front when Mduduzi Mdantsane hit a rasping shot past Patrick Tignyemb in the Celtic goal.

The visitors came out with more zest after the half-time interval but the Bakgaga defence kept them at bay.

However, with less than 20 minutes of the game remaining, Mabaso completed his brace to draw Siwelele level.

Baroka pushed hard in the final 10 minutes to find the winner but they could not get past Tignyemb as the teams were forced to share a point.

The hosts, who won the Telkom Knockout earlier in the season, are still looking for the first victory in 2019 and sit only two points above the relegation zone with ten games of the season still remaining.

Celtic are sitting comfortably in fifth position on the table, one point behind Cape Town City.
