The promoted team came into the match knowing victory will be enough to sustain them on top of the table after their 5-2 win against Tusker last weekend, while Mathare also aimed at victory in a bid to go top of the standings.
Wycliffe Kasaya was not given a starting berth after his horrendous show in last week's 3-2 win against Thika United.
The visitors could have gone ahead after 15 minutes but Captain George Owino failed to capitalize on a well taken set-piece, with goalkeeper well beaten.
It was a decent debut for Levis Opiyo who did well to deny Masuta Masita and Elvis Rupia. The hosts could have gotten an opener in the second-half, however wasteful Boniface Omondi failed to convert.
Not even the Daniel Mwaura red card could inspire the hosts to victory as Mathare United held on to get a valuable point.
Both teams have four points from two matches.
