In Soweto, Swallows and Cape Town City split the spoils.

The lone match played on Heritage Day was a 0-0 tie between Swallows and Cape Town City in a DStv Premiership match at Dobsonville Stadium.

Because of this tie, City has moved up to ninth place on the log standings with five points from four games, while Swallows has gone up to tenth place with five points from the same number of games.

In this low-key match, which was seen by Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos and his assistants Cedomir Janevski and Helman Mkhalele, neither group of players shone.

Swallows return to league play next weekend at Loftus against defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns, while City's next league match is in a fortnight at Ellis Park against Sekhukhune United.

After 25 minutes, Swallows player Khethukuthula Ndlovu fired a thunderous shot from outside the box, but City goalkeeper Hugo Marques was up to the challenge.

Swallows had another chance to break the deadlock a few minutes later, but Junaid Sait's close range header was gathered by Marques after the Swallows defender connected with his captain Lebohang Mokoena's free kick.

City had their moments on the attack as well, with Fagrie Lakay, Bradley Ralani, Mduduzi Mdantsane, and Abdul Ajagun, but they couldn't get past Swallows goalkeeper Virgil Vries.

They went at it in the second half and there were no goals to celebrate, but something must give on Wednesday because the second leg of their semi-final must have a winner.
