After losing their opening fixture at home to Esperance, the 'Ondo Gunners' put up a resurgent performance to hold Tunisian giants Etoile Sportive du Sahel to a goalless draw in Sousse, to earn valueable away points.
In the other Group A game, a late goal in the 90th minute by Cameroonian striker Yannick Ndjeng secure all the pionts at stake for group leaders Esperance.
Sunshine will continue their quest for qualification in a fortnight, when they host pointless ASO Chlef of Algeria. While Esperance and Etoile will meet in an all-Tunisian encounter.
All Group B games are scheduled for Sunday with TP Mazembe of DR Congo hosting Berekum Chelsea of Ghana and Zamalek confronting Al Ahly in a Cairo Derby that will be played behind closed doors because of security concerns.
