Ghanaian teenager Adam Abdul-Basit struck in the dying stages to save a point for Premiership strugglers Free State Stars in a 2-2 draw against high-flying Moroka Swallows in the South African top-flight on Saturday.

A mix-up in the Swallows defence handed Free State Stars the lifeline they needed to come back from a goal down to secure the draw at Goble Park.

Abdul Basit’s strike helped Free State Stars bring an end to a three game losing streak when they held Moroka Swallows to a 2-2 draw in an Absa Premiership match played at Goble Park on Saturday afternoon.

Rudi Isaacs put the visitors in front just 72 seconds into the match when he connected with a Dikgang Mabalane corner and popped the ball over the head of Stars goalkeeper Daniel Agyei.

Stars striker Basit could not believe his good fortune as he guided the ball into an empty net to make 2-2 with three minutes to play.

The visitors blew their lead when keeper Etafia and his defender made a hash of things at the back, gifting striker Adam Abdul-Basit with a chance to score the equaliser for Free State Stars.

The result leaves Stars second-bottom on the table with 13 points from 14 matches, nine points behind fourth-placed Swallows, who trail leaders Kaizer Chiefs by five points, with Amakhosi sporting a game in hand.
