Milano draw with Polokwane in playoffs
Milano United and Polokwane City played to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the NFD promotion playoffs.
CAPE TOWN - The PSL promotion/relegation playoff remains wide open following last night's 0-0 draw between National First Division sides Milano United and PSL outfit Polokwane City.
Both teams picked up a point in the first leg played at Athlone Stadium last night.
Milano top the three team mini league and are level on points with Polokwane and ahead of Black Leopards who have yet to play.
City squandered several chances by failing to punish the home side's mediocre defence.
Polokwane coach Boebie Solomons said he's content with the way his team played and with the results.
"At the end of the day it may be the one point that's going to turn to gold. Coming away with nothing in Cape Town, it could have been a problem."
Solomons said Milano were the better side and should've walked away with the three points.
"I think we let them off the hook. We had so many chances to score especially in the first half, with three or four chances but we didn't use them. by not scoring they were growing confidence."
Milano coach Theo Hempe said a draw at home will affect their chances of promotion.
"We really wanted the three points."
The next match is on Sunday between Black Leopards and Milano.
