KCB and Chemelil Sugar played to a dull 0 – 0 draw in the two sides’ Kenyan Premier League (KPL) encounter at the Nairobi City Stadium, a result which left the millers still in search of their first win of the second leg.
In a game that marked Paul Mungai’s return to action after a while out injured, KCB should have gone ahead as early as the fifth minute when Paul Mungai’s deft cross found Jacob Keli at the right place and time but the former Mathare United striker’s first touch was heavy, allowing the Chemelil defence to clear.
Mungai was also culpable of a big miss, misdirecting his kick after a defensive mistake by James Agembe with Fredrick Onyango well beaten as KCB saw their early dominance checked by the visitors.
Chemelil Sugar should have grabbed the opener on 40 minutes after Victor Omondi’s low cross from the right channel found Tony Opondo whose attempted shot was well blocked at his feet by Caleb Adola who was recovering from a shaky start to the game.
Fredrick Onyango was then called to action, saving well from a one on one with Benjamin Chaka who should have done better and Chemelil’s contentment with a point was more evident with the goalkeeper’s time wasting antics as the match drew to a close.
The result means both sides remain rooted ninth and tenth (Chemelil Sugar and KCB respectively) with 25 and 23 points in that order after 21 matches.
