Mighty Mukuru Wanderers has failed to reduce the gap with second placed Blue Eagles following a goalless draw against Civil Service United during a league match played at the Civo Stadium on Tuesday.
From kick off, the two sides played entertaining football with little chances being created but it was the home side which had the best chance of the first half through Christopher Kumwembe who failed to beat Richard Chipuwa in goals for the Nomads.
In the second half, the hunt for goals continued but both teams appeared to have forgotten their scoring boots and no goals were witnessed on the afternoon.
Wanderers head coach Eddington Ng'onamo was disappointed with the result and said his boys did not play to instructions.
"Not the result we wanted as the boys did not do what they were told,” Ng’onamo said.
He observed that since the return from the international break, the team has lost its rhythm as we are failing to score goals.
“We need to bring back the fighting spirit in the team," he said.
Civil Service United Team Manager Gabriel Chirwa was not too disappointed with the result.
"A draw is a fair result although the best chance of the match fell our way but we did not utilize it," Chirwa said.
Wanderers remain in third position on the standings with 25 points from 14 games while Civil Service United is in 8th position with 17 points.
