Reigning PSL champions, Bidvest Wits and Enyimba played out a 1-1 draw in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage playoff on Friday.

Wits took an early lead after a defensive error brought in Daine Klate, who obliged with an easy tap-in at the back post.

The former Bafana Bafana international then looked to turn provider after picking out Thobani Mncwango at the far post, but the latter failed to get his header on target minutes later.

The response from Enyimba was instant, with Ibrahim Mustapha slotting home from close range.

There were no more goals in the first half and even during the second 45 minutes.

The result sees Enyimba head into the second leg in Calabar in good stead, with an away goal in the bag.
