Leopards fans disrupt match

Black Leopards drew 2-2 against Moroka Swallows in a Castle Premiership match marred by controversy at Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday.

Leopards led 2-0 at half-time.

The match had to be stopped for 10 minutes in the second half when Leopards supporters started throwing missiles on to the pitch.

The home fans were angry with referee Buyile Gqubule’s handling of the match.

Earlier, Leopards had opened the scoring in the 10th minute through Rudzani Ramudzuli from close range. Ramudzuli completed his brace with a grass cutter in the 28th minute.

Swallows pulled one back in the 54th minute through Maimane Phiri from the penalty spot, after referee Gqubule adjudged Leopards defender Peter Matsitshe to have handled in the box.

The visitors’ substitute Alois Ngwerume headed home the equaliser in the 79th minute. — Sapa
