Maritzburg United and Kaizer Chiefs have played to a 1-1 draw at Harry Gwala Stadium.
Lebogang Manyama put the visitors in the lead in the first half, but Judas Moseamedi found the equaliser for the hosts.
In the second half the Team of Choice kept knocking but couldn’t find the winner, much to coach Eric Tinkler’s disappointment.
Chiefs are now seven points ahead of second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns halfway into the season.
Meanwhile, Bonginkosi Ntuli and Butholezwe Ncube scored for AmaZulu in their 2-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Free State.
Siphelele Luthuli had put Siwelele 1-0 but their joy was shortlived as Usuthu came from behind to win and get maximum points.
