SKW and Tigers played to an uneventful goalless draw at the SKW field on Thursday night. Chances were few and far between as most of the play took place in the centre of the park.
SKW tried some speculative long range efforts in the first half but their best chance came just before the break when Gustav Isaack stabbed a Pitzi Eichorn centre inches wide of the goals.
Tigers started attacking more after the break with especially Nelson Akwenye testing SKW’s defence. SKW keeper Harry January did well to clear just in time after Akwenye broke through the defence, while January also tipped an Akwenye freekick over the bar.
At the other end Tigers keeper Fox Nambundunga brought off a diving save from a Tjono Jagger shot, but Tigers looked more threatening and Kenny Malgas came close when he volleyed a Tangeni Shipahu centre inches wide of the upright.
With two minutes remaining Milton Chapo had a great chance when he latched onto a throughball but shot wide with just the goalie to beat.
The result leaves Tigers in fourth position on 20 points – four points behind log leaders African Stars, while SKW remain sixth on 17 points.
