In a dramatic end to the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary second round, Gaborone United (GU) played to a 1-1 draw against the visiting SuperSport United.

From the bench, debutant, Sheikh Sesay scored a world class goal with the last kick of the match to save his side from a near home defeat in a game played at the National Stadium on Saturday evening. The visitors had taken the lead early in the second half and the Reds had to salvage a draw late in the tie to keep hopes of progression to the competition’ group stage. The home side could have taken the lead inside the first quarter of an hour but Thatayaone Kgamanyane was denied by Washington Arubi on two occasions.

Thero Setsile had on the fifth minute pin pointed a long ball for Kgamanyane but the latter's shot was too weak to trouble Arubi. On the 14th minute, Onkabetse Makgantai put a teasing cross to be met by Kgamanyane but the attacker was superbly denied by Arubi from inside the box. Three minutes later the visitors had their first go at goal as Siphesihle Ndlovu pierced through the GU midfield and laid a through ball to Terrence Dzvukamanja but the striker’s attempt was wide off the post.
