John Obi Mikel was missing in action as Tianjin Teda forced hosts Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng to a 0-0 draw in a Chinese Super League game.

The Super Eagles star who got his first league goal in his side’s 2-0 win over Chongqing Lifan was side-lined from the encounter owing to injury.

Despite his absence, the Tianjin Tigers held their nerves to secure a valuable away point against Li Bing’s men.

Brown Ideye continued with his barren spell as he fired blanks after replacing Senegalese Mbaye Diagne in the 65th minute.

The result takes Tianjin Teda to ninth on the Chinese Super League log with five points from four games.

They host fifth placed Guangzhou Evergrande in their next outing on April 16 at the Teda Football Stadium, as Jaime Pacheco’s side would be targeting their second win of the season.
