AmaZulu and Baroka failed to grab an opportunity to increase their chances of surviving relegation, following a 0-0 draw at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
Although Usuthu move from 15 to 14th, they remain equal on points with Bakgaga (24) who remain 13th after the match.
Their respective positions might change by Sunday, depending on how fellow relegation fighters Polokwane City played against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, and how Black Leopards will play against Maritzburg United on Sunday.
In the other Absa Premiership match this afternoon, Stellenbosch beat Golden Arrows 1-0 at TUKS Stadium.
