Carlington Nyadombo broke the deadlock from the penalty spot after Aaron Mokoena was adjudged to have fouled Kulegani Madondo in the penalty area, but their lead didn't last long as Bhongolwethu Jayiya netted on 52 minutes to restore parity.

Neither side was able to stamp their authority on a first half that saw few chances and numerous errors from both teams.

It took 15 minutes for the first opportunity to materialise, but Andile Khumalo was unable to beat Ryan Harrison from a considerable distance.

The Clever Boys' had their first pot at goal four minutes later, but AmaZulu goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini was able to hang onto Matthew Pattison's 20-yard effort.

AmaZulu could have been ahead shortly before the break, but Ayanda Dlamini headed wide from Thamsanqa Teyise's cross.

The home side took the lead five minutes after the break when Nyadombo slotted home from the penalty spot, following Mokoena's foul on former Maritzburg man Madondo.

But the Durban side's lead was only to last two minutes as Jayiya struck with a well-taken finish from 12-yards out.

Following the quick-fire two goals, there was little opportunity for either side to find a winner.

There was a chance for Kagiso Senamela in the 84th minute, but the AmaZulu midfielder fired wide following Marc van Heerden's ball into the box.

Usuthu remain bottom of the Absa Premiership table, equal on 11 points with Chippa United, while Wits are in seventh.
