SINAN RAJUB SENOGA
Express and BUL FC shared spoils in a barren encounter at Wankulukuku.
It was a game of limited goal scoring chances with both sides having an equal share of possession.
Kefa Kisala named the same line up that had dismantled Police last week but failed to break a well organized BUL FC side.
Tony Odur led Express’ attacking line
Peter Onen’s men were forced into an early change when left back Richard Matovu got injured in a one on one challenge with Michael Birungi. He was later replaced by Hakim Magombe.
Kisala made his first substitution at the start of second half, Joel Male came on for Ibrahim Kayiwa who had a less impact in the first 45 minutes.
10 minutes later, Congolese young striker Eric Kambale came on for Mubarak Nsubuga to intensify Express’ hunt for a breaker.
Patrick Sembuya manned the midfield
Hamis Tibita and Hakim Magombe came closer to breaking the deadlock but Tibita’s shot was well gathered by Mathias Muwanga while the latter saw his free kick miss target by inches.
Onen withdrew Villa Oromchan for youngster Deogracious Ojok in the 72nd minute. Joshua Lubwama also came on for Daniel Shabena 5 minutes later.
Express won a free kick and glorious chance to find the winner when Tony Odur was brought down by Willis Otong at the edge of the box. However, Kambale blasted the resultant free kick over the bar.
Nasir Mbabali replaced Michael Birungi with barely 5 minutes to normal time.
Express skipper Julius Ntambi and BUL’s Hakim Magombe were the players cautioned on the evening.
The result moves Express to the 8th place with 5 accumulated while BUL goes 4th with 7 points.
BUL FC XI
Express will return to action when they host Tooro United at Wankulukuku on Wednesday 30th October. BUL will pay a visit to Maroons on Tuesday 30th October.
