BRAVE Warriors striker Peter Shalulile was on target for his South African club Highlands Park in their Premier Soccer League match against Polokwane City in Tembisa on Sunday, but an injury-time equaliser saw Polokwane claim a share of the spoils.
Shalulile, who was playing his first match after a six-month injury lay-off, made an immediate impact as he put Highlands Park ahead in the second minute when he guided in a cross from the right wing.
Polokwane City had numerous chances to equalize, but Highlands Park defended well, with another Namibian, Chris Katjiukua, in fine form at the centre of defence.
It seemed that the relegation-threatened Highlands Park had done enough to win the match, but Polokwane had the final say when they equalized through substitute Sipho Jembula in injury time.
The result sees Highlands Park remaining second last on the PSL log on 14 points, just behind Free State Stars on goal difference, and two points above basement dwellers Baroka FC.
When contacted yesterday, Shalulile said it was a great feeling to score on his comeback.
“I've been out for a long time with an ankle injury, but I managed to play the full 80 minutes on Sunday. It was a wonderful feeling to score again, but unfortunately they equalized in injury time,” he said.
Shalulile was full of praise for his compatriot Katjiukua who only joined the club over the past month.
