Marumo Gallants were hell to a goalless draw by 10-man Maritzburg United in a Dstv premiership clashed played at the Peter Mokaba stadium on Wednesday.
Martizburg will certainly be the happier of the two teams after having to olay the most of the second half with h 10 men after Zukile Kewuti was sent off in the 49th minutes.
Gallants came into the contest looking to build on their first league win of the season at the weekend but did not start well.
But team struggled to find any rhythm to their okay in the first half and as such no goal scoring opportunities were created.
The team of choice were reduced to 10 men just four minutes after the halftime break when midfielder Kewuti was given his marching orders by the referee.
The home team had a golden opportunity to take the lead in the 73rd minutes when they were awarded a penalty but Thabo Mnyamane saw his spot-kick saved by visiting goalkeeper Marcel Engelhardt.
Martizburg then held on resolutely and took home a deserved point from the contest.
