The game scheduled for the Greek Club was played at the Alex Stadium and also kicked off late due to another Nedbank game that ran late and then went into penalties.
In another switch, Aces were led by assistant coach Lombi Mabusela after both head coach Ashwin Sutton and assistant coach Eddie Williams were suspended.
Neither team tested the opposition keepers in the 1st half with both teams resorting to long range shots and hoping for the bumpy pitch to surprise the goalies.
In an effort to add some pressure upfront, Aces brought on the experienced and nippy Collen Zimba for O’Neil Hendrick in the 51st minute.
Thomas Madimba and Kurt Pienaar were introduced shortly afterwards for Dingaan Metsi and Ermano Barends as Aces searched for a winner.
It all ended 0 – 0 with Aces remaining 12th and Garankuwa dropping to 14th on the Gauteng ABC Motsepe log.
