The result means both sides’ position on the log remained unchanged with the prison wardens on position 15 and Dongo still at the foot of the standings.
Dongo have also managed to get a commendable four points from their opponents.
After the match, the hosts’ coach Lloyd Mutasa bemoaned their impotence in front of goal.
“The result shows our weakness in front of goal. It is an area we want to address during this transfer window. So far, we are eyeing two strikers to solve the goalscoring problems and we want to add one defender also,” Mutasa said.
Dongo Sawmill assistant coach Justin Bingadadi was delighted with a point away from home.
“I am happy that we have managed to get four points from one team and if we manage to do that against other teams in the league, we have a chance of surviving relegation,” Bingadadi said.
After 23 minutes of action, Dongo goalie Forward Pfumojena was alert to push wide for a corner a beautifully taken shot by Kenneth Bhuka.
Moments later, Pfumojena was at his best again to deny Albert Mateo, who was left unmarked in the box.
Sylvester Nhamo came close to change the scoreboard, but the host side’s defender was inches wide with 15 minutes left on the clock.
