Moyale fc on Saturday played out a goalless against Nyasa Big Bullets in front of thousands of their supporters.
It was a game to watch as both teams started on a high note but failed to use their chances well.
Brilliant play from Gasten Simkonda shook the Bullets defence while at the other end McFallen Ngwira was a constant threat for the soldiers.
But at the end of the first half there was nothing to write home about.
In the second half, both teams made some changes with Bullets pulling out Collen Nkhulambe and bringing in Diversion Mlozi while Moyale brought in Steve Mkandawire.
However, the two teams found goals hard to come by as they missed a lot of chances.
Five minutes before the end of the game, Moyale had an advantage as Bullets were reduced to 10 men after center back Miracle Gabeya received matching orders for a second bookable offence.
But the People’s Team managed to hold out for a draw as the game ended 0-0.
Speaking after the game, Team manager for Bullets Rahim Ishmael said a draw was better for them than a loss.
“It’s a fair result than losing all points, but tomorrow we will try to work hard though Gabeya was red carded, it happens in the game of football,” said Rahim.
An assistant coach for the soldiers said they are content with the result since they are still in the race for the title.
Bullets will face Mzuni on Sunday in another league encounter at the same venue Mzuzu stadium.
