In one of the most entertaining stalemates of the season so far, Bright stars will go back home with their heads held high after battling for a well deserved point at the hands of defending champions KCCA FC
Hamuza Muwonge was by far the undisputed man of the match as Bright stars held their nerve to force a 0-0 draw against KCCA FC at the Philip Omondi Stadium in a game where KCCA hit the woodwork for a record 4 times.
Bright stars came into this game with a very unpleasant record of losing 7 of the last 8 encounters against KCCA FC but they were determined not to repeat the same feat.
The first round saw KCCA FC dominate the affairs with Allan Okello, Julius Poloto and Patrick Kaddu shining brighter than the Bright stars.
Amidst a heavy down pour, the players soldiered on and Allan Okello almost found a breakthrough for the hosts but his effort hit the top bar and it went out.
Enter the second half and Mike Mutebi handed Ibrahim Saddam Juma his league debut, coming on for Tito Okello who had looked subdued by the Bright stars defence.
Bright stars responded by introducing Bagoth Yusuf for Henry Kiwanuka to enable them tighten up the midfield that was dominated by KCCA. Paul Kiwanuka later on introduced Jungu Methodius for Seif Batte and Kokas Opejo for Joshua Kawadwa.
Mike Mutebi’s final dice was tossed when he introduced Allan Kateregga and Samuel Sekamatte for Allan Okello and Julius Poloto respectively but they could break a resolute Brights stars defense.
Saddam Juma, Timothy Awanyi, Allan Kateregga and Paul Mucurezi were all guilty failing to find a way through a very defensively organised Bright Stars side.
KCCA have drawn their 4 game of the season and they maintain their record as the only team yet to test defeat this season.
