APR hold Tusker in Nairobi

20 February 2012, 09:25 John Maigwa

Kenyan Premier  league champions Tusker FC were held to a goalless draw by visiting Rwanda Champions APR, in the first leg of the CAF Champions League preliminary match at the Nyayo Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Rwandese Champions settled first in the match, threatening Tusker back four, as early as the 6th minute. Goalkeeper Boniface Oluooch was on point to redirect Douglas Lopez’s cross from the left.

Tusker had a goal disallowed by the Ugandan referee, after Paul Were sunk the ball inside the net in the 12th minute, only to be ruled offside.
The brewers continued with their pressure upfront but always lacked the cutting edge at the goal.

Keeping the pressure, Dennis Mukaisi had perhaps the best chance for Tusker, but his effort was cleared off the line after he rounded APR keeper Jean Claude Ndoli.

Tusker had a setback halfway through the game when their most important midfielder Joseph Mbugi limped out injured.

Tusker seemed lost in midfield with the loss of Mbugi and APR took advantage to play around with the ball. However, Tusker’s backline marshaled by captain Jockins Atudo and Brian Mandela stood out to deny the APR attack line.

The second half was more defensive for both teams as APR looked to seal a valuable away point.

The introduction of Obadiah Ndege for Maurice Odipo boosted Tusker’s attack as he was a constant thorn in the APR defense led by Mbuyi Twitte.

APR almost got a crucial away goal at the death when Wagaluka Dan sprinted on the right bringing in a low cross but unluckily no one was there to tap in the ball as it rolled mercilessly infront of goal.

Both coaches were content with the draw with the away match set for two weeks time in Kigali.
