Chippa United were forced to settle for a goalless draw in their Absa Premiership season opener against Stellenbosch at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.

The Port Elizabeth-based professional soccer side were the stronger of the two sides but struggled when it came to putting the ball in the back of the net.

The newly-promoted side's coach Steve Barker will head back home to the Western Cape as the happier coach as his team  managed to grab a point on the road.

Chippa's next match is against Mamelodi Sundowns at Nelson Mandela Stadium on Wednesday.
