The lads were held to a 0-0 draw by visiting Bandari at Kasarani Stadium on Wednesday.

A bright start from the boys was not enough to secure a win as they were twice denied by the bar.

In the first minute, Clifford Alwanga met Cliff Nyakeya’s cross with a solid header that stung Farouk Shikalo’s palms and came off the bar.

Then moments later, Alwanga’s strike partner Chris Ochieng’ swept home a low cross from James Kinyanjui but his effort cannoned off the left upright.

The result leaves us sixth with 51 points.
