Gor Mahia’s chances of closing the gap on league leaders Ulinzi took a jolt when they were held to a 0-0 tie away to Karturi sports in Naivasha.
Despite being cheered by a large travelling band of fans who gave them a virtual home ground advantage, Kogalo appeared rusty in a lacklusture firsh half in which both teams created few chances.
The entry of Makori, Kiplagat and Ocholla in the second half enabled Gor Mahia to raise their game. However they could not break the deadlock despite numerous raids at the Karturi goal.
The tie leaves Kogalo in danger of falling 8 points behind Ulinzi should they win in Sunday.
