Malawian players—Robert Ng’ambi and Esau Kanyenda— had a fair slice of South Africa Absa Premiership action on Tuesday.
Ng’ambi played a dominant role for Platinum Stars as they came from behind to force a 1-1 draw against Orlando Pirates at Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg.
The visiting Stars, who started the game brightly with Ng’ambi flashing his effort marginally wide, were stunned by substitute Thabiso Kutumela’s 55th minute goal for Pirates.
However, Stars fought gallantly and got rewarded through Thobani Kunene’s leveler in time added on.
Pirates wasted a chance to top the 16-member table as they lie second with eight points from four games whereas Stars are placed seventh with five points also from four outings.
In another game, veteran striker, Kanyenda’s Polokwane City condemned Maritzburg to a third straight defeat at the Harry Gwala Stadium also on Tuesday night.
Kanyenda was an unused substitute during the game, which City won 1-0 to move to fourth place also with eight points from five games.
Sipho Jembula’s 67th strike handed City the win.
Maritzburg sit 12th with four points from five games.
