There could be no separating Bloemfontein Celtic and Free State Stars as Wednesday's Free State derby finished goalless.
Lyle Lakay looked to work something for the hosts in the opening 10 minutes but fired his shot over the crossbar, before team-mate Lantshene Phalane also had a pop at goal with his effort fizzing wide.
Stars continued searching for a response and almost found one through Thokozani Sekotlong, although he too was lacking in accuracy and fired a shot wide of the mark.
Ea Lla Koto came close to finding a way through six minutes after the restart as Thokozani Sekotlong managed to get a decent shot on target, although it wasn’t enough to beat the goalkeeper, who made a good save.
Musa Nyatama then had a chance to snatch it in second-half injury time with a decent shot, only to see the goalkeeper again make the save to ensure the game finished scoreless.
