Rise and Shine came from a goal down to deny Matsantsantsa while Usuthu remain at the bottom after their goalless draw at home to the Team of Choice

The South African football got back to its bread and butter when the PSL returned on Tuesday night.

Polokwane City played hosts to MTN8 Cup finalists, SuperSport United, at the Peter Mokaba Stadium as they looked for their fourth win of the season.

Coach Jozef Vukusic's men were in high spirits heading into this clash after their 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits in the previous match away in Johannesburg a week ago.

Although Rise and Shine conceded as early as the ninth minute when Aubrey Modiba scored for the visitors, they pushed to find an equaliser.

Resulting from a number of attempts, the Rise and Shine saw their efforts rewarded in the 31st minute when Ayanda Nkili found the back of the net to make it 1-1.

With this draw, City now sit in position six on the log table with 11 points while Kaitano Tembo's men remain fifth with 13 points, both from seven league games.

Moreover, the two sides are in action this weekend as City travel to meet Kaizer Chiefs at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in a match which is set to be staged behind closed doors. SuperSport take on Baroka this coming weekend. 

In the other match of the day, AmaZulu met Maritzburg United in the KwaZulu Natal Derby at the King Zwelithini Stadium.

Although the encounter failed to produce any goals, both camps were destined to find the back of the net, but they lacked composure upfront.

For Cavin Johnson's men, this was not good at all as they're still rooted at the bottom of the standings with two points after the decision by Fifa to dock them six points for unlawfully terminating Phineas Nambandi's contract in 2014.

On the other hand, the Team of Choice moved up to 11th on the log table with six points. 

Up next for coach Fadlu Davids' men is a tough match against Cape Town City, who suffered a 2-0 loss at the hand of the Clever Boys on Tuesday night.

AmaZulu will welcome Orlando Pirates at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday night as they fight to move up the log table.
