Zimbabwe International goalkeeper George Chigova put a one man show that earned him the man of the match award as his side Polokwane held Kaizer Chiefs to a 1-1 draw in their Absa Premiership match at FNB Stadium on Tuesday.

Chigova produced several saves to keep out George Maluleka and company to help his side earn a point in a game dominated by Amakhosi.

The draw ends a three match losing run for Polokwane who remain 13th on the league table with 21 points from 21 matches.

For Chiefs it is a huge blow in their race for the league title as they find themselves in third place on the table, seven points adrift of leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Polokwane scored the first goal in the 31st minute through Mncwango but Chiefs responded just 5 minutes later to level the scores through a Mathoho header.

Kaizer Chiefs threw everything at Polokwane but Chigova stood between the difference of loss and draw. He was simply outstanding in goals and quite deservedly walked away man of the match.
