Bandari managed to hold Gor Mahia to a 0-0 draw in a Football Kenya Federation Premier League encounter at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday.
Gor Mahia came close to breaking the deadlock in the fifth minute when Fred Nkata made an adventurous move into the box before he spotted Dennis Ng’ang’a in a good position. Unfortunately for them, the defender’s shot went wide from close range.
In the eighth minute, William Wadri, Mohamed Siraj, and Umaru Kasumba engineered a good combination, but the latter’s header flew wide and thus Bandari’s first clear chance was wasted.
KCB and Posta Rangers were the only sides to win, with the former recording a deserved 2-0 victory over Ulinzi Stars to keep pace with leaders, Gor Mahia.
The Bankers led at the break thanks to Michael Oduor’s 19th-minute strike before they doubled their lead with 20 minutes to go.
Following the win, KCB maintained their second spot o 18 points, same as Gor, who have a match at hand.
At the Bukhungu Stadium, AFC Leopards conceded a last-minute penalty to draw 1-1 with hosts Vihiga United.
Eugene Mukangula gave the visitors the lead in the 19th minute, and it seemed enough to give them maximum points until they conceded a penalty late on which was converted as the two sides shared the points.
