It was Brondby’s second point in four matches for the struggling side languish at the bottom of the log table.

The former Motor Action winger, who joined Brondby from fellow Danish side Sonderjyske during the mid-season transfer window, has started in five matches and been substituted three times.

Terrance Mandaza emerged a hero for South Africa Absa Premiership side Maritzburg United after scoring a spectacular stoppage time header to deny Kaizer Chiefs victory on Friday.

Lehlohonolo Majoro had given the log leaders a first-half lead and appeared to be coasting to victory before substitute “Terryguns” hit an unstoppable header deep into stoppage time to break the Chiefs hearts.

Cuthbert Malajila played the whole match for Maritzburg United, and so did Willard Katsande for Kaizer Chiefs. Lincoln Zvasiya came in for Chiefs with three minutes of the match remaining while Kingstone Nkhata and Mathew Rusike were unused subs.

Thomas Sweswe played the whole match as Wits University also stole a point at SuperSport United.

Still in South Africa, Khama Billiat played the full match for Ajax as they drew 0-0 with Esrom Nyandoro’s Mamelodi Sundowns. Nyandoro started for the Brazilians while compatriot Nyasha Mushekwi came in with 20 minutes remaining.

Gilbert Mapemba escaped a red card for an over-the-top challenge on Rodney Ramagalela as his Moroka Swallows blew up a first-half lead to share the spoils with Sunday Chidzambwa’s Black Leopards.

Washington Arubi was in goal for Pretoria University as they edged Bloemfontein Celtic 2-1 to move into second position on the log table.

Carlington Nyadombo and Mkhokheli Dube started for AmaZulu as they held Takesure Chinyama’s Orlando Pirates. Dube was substituted early in the second half while Chinyama was an unused substitute, again.

In Belgium, Ovidy Karuru took all the bragging rights away from compatriot Vusa Nyoni after his side OH Leuven cruised to a 3-1 win away to Beerschot on Saturday.

Karuru played 60 minutes for his fifth game of the season as the high-flying side chalked their fourth win on a trot. OH Leuven, now sixth on the log with 20 points just two points above log leaders Genk, has not lost a match in which Karuru played since he joined from France in August.

Nyoni played the whole match, but could not help his side as they lost their second consecutive match.

It was a bad weekend for Zimbabweans in Cyprus. Noel Kaseke’s Alki Larnaca side fell 2-0 at home to Paphos while Eddie Mashinya’s Ethnikos Achna was beaten 1-0 also at home to Aek Larnaca. Kaseke played the whole match and received a caution late in the game while Mashinya came in as a 73rd minute substitute.

Knowledge Musona, on loan to Augsburg, played the whole match for his side who recorded their fifth defeat of the season in nine matches in the Bundesliga. The struggling side, seated second from the bottom with six points, went down 2-0 at home to Hamburger SV on Friday.

Archford Gutu was an unused sub for Kalmar FF in Sweden as his side collected maximum points with a 2-1 win away to Hacken on Saturday.

In the Vietnamese league, Justice Majabvi played the whole match as Khanh Hoa beat Song Lam Nghe An 2-1 at home.

The former Dynamos midfielder has started in all 26 matches for his side this season and has been substituted three times.
