Shakes Mashaba’s team remain top of Group A and on course to qualify for the finals in Morocco, but they will be disappointed with their performance in this match, having beaten the same opponents 2-0 away from home last weekend.
In another AFCON qualifier, seven-time African Cup of Nations-winning Egypt secured their second win in four games when they beat Botswana 2-0 at the Cairo Stadium yesterday night.
The result does not change Egypt’s position in Group G, they remain in third spot, on six points, one point behind both Senegal and Tunisia, who play later yesterday.
Also yesterday, Zambia beat Niger 3-0 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola to end their three match winless drought.
The victory put Zambia firmly back on the road to Marrakech in the 2015 Africa Cup qualifiers after picking up just two points prior.
All three goals came in the second half after a first 45 minutes of missed opportunities that fell mostly to Emmanuel Mayuka in the 2nd, 15th and 45th minutes.
The deadlock was broken in the 58th minute Rainford Kalaba headed in from close range.
Mayuka then broke his two year goal drought after tapping in Chisamba Lungu’s cross in the 73rd minute.
Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene put the result beyond doubt in the 88th minute from the penalty spot after Given Singuluma was brought down in the box.
In Luanda, Angola thrashed Lesotho 4-0 in their 2015 CAF Africa Cup of Nations yesterday night.
Bastos opened the scoring early in the first half and Ary Papel before a Lesotho own-goal and another goal from Love Cabungula secured a convincing win for the home side.
The Palancas Negras broke the deadlock in the 2nd minute through defender Bastos and continued to dominate proceedings early in the first half.
