KCCA 1:1 Mbarara City

Makueth Wol’s second half equaliser saw KCCA share spoils with relegation battling Mbarara city, a result that has done some serious damage to KCCA’s title defence.

Muzamir Mutyaba had put the hosts in the lead as early as the 4th minute, converting from the spot after being brought down in the area.

The KCCA FC dominance continued for the remaining minutes to halftime but they failed to find more goals to consolidate and secure their lead.

On return, Mbarara city attacked with more purpose and desire like a team ready not to be relegated.

Their efforts were in turn to be repaid only 12 minutes into the 2nd period when Sudanese born Makweth Wol beat Timothy Awany and co. to power home a delightful finish, leveling matters for the visitors.

KCCA gained more momentum in search for the breaker but the closest they came was Jackson Nunda’s effort that was to be later ruled out for offside.

Efforts by both sides to find a winner were all futile despite the game being played end to end to the last final minutes.

The draw takes KCCA FC to 40 points while Mbarara city move another point away from the red zone with 23 points.

The next league engagements will see Mbarara city visit Express FC while KCCA will host UPDF FC on Wednesday, 11th, April, 2018.
