SELEBI-PHIKWE: A brilliant goal from Onkabetse Makgantai helped Nico United share points with Orapa United in a poorly attended beMOBILE Premiership encounter on Friday.

The game did not attract satisfactory attendance by supporters perhaps a factor that can be attributed to the fact that it was initially scheduled to start at 7pm before rescheduling it for 4pm. The game lacked sparks with neither team showing hunger.  The first half went into recess with both teams in a deadlock.  Performance improved in the second half with Nico wasting an opportunity to take the lead from a free kick.   After a long wait for a goal, it finally came in the 82nd minute through midfielder, Patrick Motsepe giving Orapa United the lead.  Approaching the dying minutes of the game Orapa United relaxed and Nico took advantage and pushed forward with an equaliser.

Makgantai broke Orapa United supporters’ hearts when he equalised in the last minute of the game, denying them maximum points.
