Omonia Nicosia FC failed to reach the summit after drawing 1-1 away to Enosis Neon Paralimniou FC.
Omonia Nicosia FC missed their chance to wrest the Cypriot First Division leadership from APOEL Nicosia FC after drawing 1-1 away to Enosis Neon Paralimniou FC.
The fixture was originally due to be played last weekend but was postponed until today on safety grounds as there was a problem with seating. Already missing Haris Nicolaou through injury, Omonia's cause was further hampered 20 minutes in when Georgos Theodotou had to be replaced by Marios Nicolaou following a knock. The first half belonged to Enosis, who went closest to opening the scoring in the 40th minute when Demos Goumenos' powerful strike rebounded to safety off the crossbar.
Enosis had a golden opportunity to take the lead on the hour mark when they were awarded a penalty, but Georgian international Levani Kebadze's penalty was superbly saved by German goalkeeper Stefan Brasas. Omonia took the lead two minutes later, Ljubisa Kekic scoring following a swift counterattack involving Elias Charalambous. However, Enosis were not to be denied and secured a share of the spoils through Georgos Nicolaou in the 72nd minute.
