KCCA FC and Express FC played out to a barren stalemate on Wednesday at the MTN Omondi Stadium.

Express FC custodian Denis Otim was named man of the match after making vital saves that earned his side a point at Lugogo.

Otim who started ahead of first choice goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa twice denied Sadat Anaku. In the 37th minute, Otim palmed away the forward’s powerful header.

Otim made another decent save in the second half when he tipped over the bar a Anaku left footed shot.

In the closing stages of the game, Anaku came close to securing maximum points for the hosts but his effort on the volley hit the low post.

The draw means KCCA missed a chance to extend their lead at the summit and are currently on 28 points, two above second placed Vipers.

It’s now one win in four league games for KCCA after stalemates against Vipers, SC Villa and lately Express. Their victory in the previous four game was a 3-1 win over Police.
