Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) and visiting Chemelil Sugar served out a dull barren draw in a Kenya Premier League (KPL) match played at City Stadium on Friday.
KCB began the match with more purpose but were let down by poor finishing from their front men led by Ezekiel Odera and Under-23 captain Paul Mungai. The best chance of the game fell to Mungai the 24th minute but his effort went wide.
The bankers were nearly punished from their profligacy in front of goal near the end of the first half but keeper Caleb Adola saved at the feet of normally reliable goal getter Tony Opondo.
Their were no improvement in terms of goals mouth action in the second half as the game petered and both sides seemingly settling for a point apiece.
“We lacked the cutting edge in the opening stages and did not use the chances we created to unsettle Chemelil and this allowed them back into the game and they frustrated us,” KCB goalkeepers Adola told Goal.com afterwards.
For Chemelil, they have to contend with the fact that they are the only team to have gone five straight matches without registering victory in the sixteen team league.
The league action continues on Saturday with only one match on the card pitting relegation threatened Oserian and Western Stima in Naivasha.
