BARI FC missed the chance to close the gap on the top three by only securing a point at home to AFC Avalon at the weekend.

They took the lead through Mohammed Kidla who scored with an excellent header.

Avalon equalised with a scrappy goal in the second half, but failed to capitalise later in the game by missing from the spot after Talha Ali conceded a penalty.

Bari were equally wasteful from 12 yards out, when Imran Merchant was fouled in the area, but Ikram Adam also missed.
