Muhoroni Youth recorded their second successive draw in a span of three days after holding Posta Rangers FC to a scoreless draw in a Kenyan Premier League (KPL) affair staged at the Nairobi's Ruaraka Grounds on Wednesday 13 September.

Rangers came into the game on a back of a five game winless streak and their urge to pick maximum points in the game was shown from the first whistle. Their strike force led by Kennedy Otieno kept the Muhoroni defence on toes with captain Faina Jacobs having one of his busiest afternoons.

Scoreless Half

Muhoroni were glad to wait for their turn to launch attacks and when they came it was more of a trial rather than  matter of urgency; the team's heading into the break with no one grabbing the onion bag.

They started the second half on a brighter note with Venval Thomas being culpable of missing two glorious chances. The lively Faruku Mudoola after being let free by Titus Achesa sent in an inviting ball five minutes after resumption with Venval blazing his effort wide with only Patrixk Matasi to beat. Matasi was to be forced again to race from his line three minutes later after Venval had been put through by Maxwell Onyango.

 Dennis Mukaisi and Kennedy Otieno were missed to point blank headers when the Muhoroni Youth defence had gone to sleep when the game waded on.

Sowedi's Save

The Sammy Omollo coached side then had the perfect opportunity to go into the lead after Gearson Likonoh had beaten Faina Jacobs on the right flank, and with everyone on the pitch had rose off their feet expecting a goal, Salim Sowedi was to pull one of the finest save of the match to deny the ex Chemelil man.

Rangers were not going to be deterred by the Likonoh miss and with ten minutes left on the clock, John Naruka had a perfect floated ball headed inches wide by captain Joakins Atudo. Rangers were to hit the post via Mukaisi who rose above the Muhoroni defence to nod in a Joseph Mbugi cross with the visitors soaking in the late pressure for a valuable draw.
