Nzoia Sugar failed to keep pace with the league leaders as they drop points for the second straight game with a barren stalemate away at FC Talanta.

The Dockers led 1-0 at halftime and quickly went 2-0 up after the restart through Abdallah after another handling error from Odiwuor.

Bidco introduced Said Tsuma, Juma Alex and Ezekiel Okare to atleast to try and salvage a point.

The away team continued to press for a goal and 8 minutes to stoppage time Alex Juma shot was saved by Bandari captain and goalkeeper Michael Wanyika.

Two Minutes later Juma was in Bandari danger zone again heading a well taken coner kick that hit top bar and finally saved by Brian Odera.

On stoppage time Bandari striker Felix Oluoch effort was calmly saved by Bidco keeper Daniel Odiwuor.
