FIGHT FOR EVERYTHING: Ajax drew at Chippa. Photo: RYAN WILKISKY/BACKPAGEPIX
Ajax Cape Town may be second last on the league table, but the point obtained in a 1-1 draw with Chippa United in Port Elizabeth on Sunday afternoon could be worth its weight in gold at the end of the season.

Fresh from a mid-week 1-0 win over Wits at home, the Urban Warriors, currently near the bottom of the league table, will take what points they can get. 

But the chance of a point or more looked bleak when the Chilli Boys went ahead in the 54th minute through Mxolisi Macuphu, as the  midfielder finished off from a pass by Thabo Rakhale following a corner kick.

Chippa will be kicking themselves for letting three points slip away, and could well have lost the match in the final two minutes.

First, Ajax substitute Samuel Julies, on for Tercious Malepe in the 73rd minute, had a header cleared off the line in the 90th minute. 

Then came the equaliser with Yannick Zakri taking advantage of a Chippa defensive error to tap the ball home, wide of goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.

Ajax, now with 28 points from 27 games are a full seven points ahead of bottom-placed Platinum Stars and just a point shy of SuperSport United. 

The Capetonians will host Baroka in their next league fixture on April 24.
