Bandari FC and Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) played a football match, ending in a tie with no goals scored by either team. This match was part of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League. Bandari FC was hoping for a win to catch up with league leaders Gor Mahia, but the draw makes their pursuit more challenging.

The game showed moments of skill from both sides as they tried hard to score goals. Bandari FC had five chances to score from corner kicks in the first 29 minutes of the game. However, they couldn’t turn any of these opportunities into goals. KCB’s first real chance came at the thirty-minute mark when Derrick Otanga attempted a header, but it was saved by Bandari goalkeeper Bryne Omondi.

In the second half, KCB came back strong, trying to break the tie, but Bandari’s strong defense prevented them from scoring. Despite their efforts, Bandari FC’s coach, John Baraza, expressed disappointment at his team’s inability to score.

Baraza said, “Our main problem has been scoring goals. We’ll work harder on this during our training sessions. Also, moving our home games from Mbaraki Sports Club to Mombasa Sports Club has been tough, but we’re committed to overcoming these challenges.”

With this draw, Bandari FC remains in third place with 45 points. They haven’t won any of their last three matches. KCB, on the other hand, is in tenth place with 35 points. Both teams have played 27 matches so far.

Bernard Mwalala, the coach of KCB, was satisfied with the one point they earned from the match against Bandari FC. He said, “We’re glad to have secured a point, especially because playing in Mombasa is challenging. Each team had its moments, but no one managed to score.”

Mwalala also shared his ambition to win the MozzartBet Cup and represent the country in the CAF Confederation Cup.

After the match with KCB, Bandari FC is now focusing on their next game against AFC Leopards at Nyayo Stadium. Meanwhile, KCB is preparing for their MozzartBet Cup quarter-finals match against Kakamega Homeboyz.
