Lesotho and Angola failed to make up ground in Group C when they played to a 0-0 in a 2015 CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Setsoto Stadium in Maseru.

The result leaves Likuena in third place on the log with two points from three matches, one point ahead of the Palancas Negras, who remain at the foot of the table.

Both sides had opportunities early on but Arsenio Love Cabungula saw his goalbound shot deflected wide in the 13th minute while Phafa Tsosane drilled his effort wide of the target at the other end three minutes later.

Cabungula rose highest at the far post to connect with a corner in the 26th minute but his header went over the crossbar as the two teams went into the break with the deadlock intact.

The second half started brightly with Job forcing a low save from Liteboho Mokhesi early on, while Landu also made a comfortable save at the other end to deny Tsepo Seturumane at the other end.

Cabungula then wasted a good chance when he shot wide from the left side of the box in the 60th minute, while Estevao saw his sliding attempt blocked by a defender before the goalkeeper gained possession of the ball in the 72nd minute.

Both sides had chances to win it in added time but Tsepo Likhooana failed to nudge the ball home at the far post when he was left unmarked during a corner kick, while Ruben shot wide at the other end from the edge of the box.

Burkina Faso lead the group with points from two matches, followed by Gabon with four points. The two sides are due to meet in Libreville on Saturday evening.
