The status quo in the top five of the 2019/20 FAZ Super Division was maintained on Saturday following a litany of draws in that bracket of Week 13 fixtures.
The big one was at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe where 2019 runners-up Green Eagles visited the record 12-time champions Nkana .
That matches ended 0-0 in which Nkana threw everything at a stubborn ultra-defensive Eagles.
Midfielder Kelvin Mubanga thought he had clinched the winner with a fine stoppage time voley from point-blank-range but it was equalled by a superb saveby Sebastian Mwange who had replaced Kenneth Mwaanga in the 43rdminute due to injury.
It was the second successive scoreless draw Eagles had collected after they ended leaders and defending champions Zesco United’s 100 percent start to the season when they halted the latters’ nine-game winning start to the campaign on November 23 away in Ndola.
Nkana stay 4th on 21 points while Eagles are 6th on 16 points from eleven and nine matches played respectively.

Elias Maguli scored his fifth goal of the season when he gave Nakambala 1-0 halftime lead in the 5th minute.
It took an 85th minute penalty converted by Bornwell Mwape for Napsa to leave the Sugar capital with a point.
