No goals in Sunday's NFD action

Thanda Royal Zulu missed the chance to further extend their lead at the top of the NFD after being held to a 0-0 draw with AmaZulu at the King Zwelethini Stadium on Sunday.

The result sees the Richards Bay side maintaining the five point lead over Stellenbosch FC they took into the weekend.

Mhlengi Cele was a constant threat for Thanda in the first half, but the league's top goal-scorer was to have a couple of close calls and a couple of shots stopped by Sage Stephens.

Both teams had opportunities in the second stanza, including Siyabonga Nomvethe for Usuthu, while Thanda were denied a goal when Njabulo Ngcobo cleared off his own line.

AmaZulu came closest to scoring when Jabulani Ncobeni fired a free kick into the woodwork ten minutes from time.

The day's two other matches - Jomo Cosmos versus Real Kings at Olen Park, and Cape Town All Stars against Witbank Spurs at Athlone, also both failed to yield any goals.
