UPL: KCCA FC Held By URA

KCCA FC dropped two points after playing to a one-all stalemate in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League game played at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo on Wednesday evening.

The visitors showed immediate intent when they went ahead after eight minutes through a left shot from Ashraf Mandela that deflected off John Revita to give the tax collectors the advantage.

Mike Mutyaba was fouled on the edge of the box and Kizza’s resultant free kick was saved in the 15th minute.

In 24th minute, John Odumegwu chested down for Allan Okello who pulled the trigger but his effort flew wide.

Nigerian Odumegwu then controlled a good ball from Obenchan, turned and shot but his effort went wide.

Two minutes from the half time mark, Gift picked a loose ball from midfield and shot straight to URA custodian James Alitho.

In the 57th minute, Sserwadda headed the ball to Okello whose half volley hit the back of the net to restore parity.

There was a change in the match officials after Alex Muhabi got injured and was replaced by John Bosco Kalibaala who was the fourth official.
