Draw heats up football league ({{commentsTotal}})

Neither FC Levadia nor Nõmme Kalju could take 3 points and break away from the others in Tuesday's match between the top two.

Levadia and Kalju played out a 0-0 draw yesterday, meaning that Levadia is now on 56, Kalju on 55 and Flora, after a 4-1 win against Viljandi Tulevik on Monday, on 54 points, after 25 games of 36.

Flora had looked like falling behind, having led earlier in the season, but the win against Viljandi puts them back on track. Yet, it is not all good news for Flora - club captain Enar Jääger left the club for Oslo Valeranga.

Jääger, who is a mainstay of the national team, played in 16 top flight games this season in defense, with Flora only letting in 10 goals during those games. Flora's defense is currently the best in the top league.

In the league battle of the best of the rest, FC Infonet fell twice behind against Tartu Tammeka at home, but Vladislav Kozlovs scored four for Infonet to win the game and take them fourth, two points above Sillamäe Kalev, on 44 and 42 points respectively.

Narva Trans have little to play for on 30 points, with the closest follower, Paide Linnameeskond, on 20. Viljandi has 18 points (from 24 games) and Tartu 15 (also from 24 games), with Pärnu Linnameeskond at the foot of the table on 13 points.
