Cape Town - Bidvest Wits' Absa Premiership struggles continued when they were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw with Ajax Cape Town at the Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday.

Gabadinho Mhango was close to picking out Amr Gamal with a back-post cross in the third minute, but the Egyptian arrived just too late to score.

Vincent Pule then drew a straightforward save from Ajax keeper Jody February after 20 minutes with Mhango curling a 20-yard effort shortly after.

Wits keeper Darren Keet had work to do when he kept out a stinging shot from Tashrique Morris on 33 minutes, before Thabo Mosadi curled an effort marginally wide 10 minutes later as Ajax ended the half in a positive vein. 

It took a while for second-half action to heat up as both teams continued to misfire in and around goal.

The first real opening came 20 minutes from time when Reeve Frosler's low cross picked out Gamal right in front of goal, but the attempted finish went horribly wrong as somehow he missed from just three yards out.

Sfiso Hlanti had a decent chance in the 78th minute when the ball fell to him in the box, but the Bafana left-back was well off-target with his volley.

There were no further opportunities as defending league champions failed to find a way to unlock a stubborn Urban Warriors defence.
