Relegation-bound, Muhoroni Youth held visiting Zoo FC to a 1-1 draw in a midweek match at home.

The struggling Sugar Millers earned a hard-fought point at home, though the single point it will add little value to their relegation fight.

Hassan Kiyoyo scored the all-important goal for Muhoroni Youth that cancelled out Nicholas Kipkirui’s opener for Zoo in the 10th minute.

Kipkirui  made a perfect return to action after serving a one ban in Zoo’s last draw against Ulinzi Stars when he gave the visitors the lead early in the first after slotting past Gradus Ochieng on Muhoroni Youth’s goal.

But Kiyoyo restored parity from the spot after Dominic Ouma brought down Bliss Kityo in his box, leaving referee with no option but topoint on the spot.

Kiyoyo made no mistake when he sent Vincent Misikhu the wrong side for Muhoroni Youth’s equalizer in the 21 minute.

Bliss Kityo was presented with a perfect opportunity to double the lead but he blew away the chance when he directed his effort off target with only the keeper to beat.

Kipkirui was also denied by the cross bar while, Ochieng's reflexes also saved Muhoroni Youth with his pin point save on Isaac Kipyegon late on second half.
