However, they remain bottom of Group A after ASEC Mimosas were also held to a scoreless draw by visiting Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa earlier today in Abidjan.

Lobi Stars literally were resolute in defence in the first half with goalkeeper Olufemi Kayode pulling off a big save in the 14th minute, when he first blocked a dangerous free kick before the rebound was headed directly back at him.

After the interval, the Makurdi club opened up a bit and created a few anxious moments for the 2017 Africa champions who continued to play on the front foot and enjoy more of the ball.

Goalkeeper Kayode again pulled off a series of saves to keep his team in this contest.

Lobi Stars will next month travel to South Africa to battle group leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in continuation of the competition.
