Mount Pleasant and Vere United battled to a 0-0 draw in their Jamaica Premier League (JPL) game at the UWI-JFF Captain Horace Burrell Centre of Excellence.
It was the third and final game of the day and it was the only one that didn’t produce any goals and a true reflection of the drab encounter with very few chances.
But it was a result that saw both Vere United and Mount Pleasant slip from the joint top of the league to third and fourth spots respectively with 15 points.
They also missed a glorious chance to stake a claim in the championship playoffs and will now have to wait anxiously for the final round of preliminary games next week.
Vere United will play second-placed Cavalier in the final round while Mount Pleasant is set to play Dunbeholden in two very difficult games.
