UPL: Mbarara, KCCA Fire Blanks At Kakyeka


Wednesday, January 29
Mbarara City 0-0 KCCA

Mbarara City and KCCA FC shared spoils in a tense StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter played at Kakyeka Stadium.

Neither side could find the break, despite some open chances creates as the well attended game ended goalless.

The visitors will feel like two points dropped after missing the most clear cut chances: Allan Kyambadde was denied by the woodwork before his effort at close range was deflected out for a corner.

Peter Magambo also got chances late in the game but the lanky defender launched his efforts over the bar.

Mbarara will have Goalkeeper Ali Kimera to thank as the custodian denied Okello from a freekick after Mukundane had brought down Kyambadde in a bookable offence. The Custodian was also brought into action on several occasions and he never disappointed.

Mbarara also asked questions: Jude Semugabi at point blank range shot wide after Paul Mucureezi flicked a back heel in his way.

Mucureezi had his attempt easily collected by Charles Lukwago. Orit Ibrahim turned past Bernard Muwango to deliver a lofty cross which beat the keeper but also too high for Ssemugabi to head home.

The results means that KCCA has dropped four points off Mbarara – The reverse fixture also ended goalless at Lugogo. This is the fourth draw from as many games between the sides in top flight as the two meetings last season ended in draws.

KCCA remain on top with 37 points after 16 games. They are now six points above Vipers in second. This was KCCA’s fouth draw of the campaign.
