Veteran striker Godfrey Wakaza salvaged a point for as army side UPDF played to a 2-2 draw with Masavu FC
Walter Rubankene put UPDF in the lead as early as the first minute of the game when he headed home from a well weighed corner.
Masavu kept on pressing harder for the leveller and it was Ddamba Veron who found the equalizer at the stoke of half time.
Abraham Ndugwa made it 2-1 in Masavu’s when he finished off a nice run in the 71st minute of the game.
Masavu looked to have won it until the 83rd minute when Godfrey Wakaza rebounded the ball off goalkeeper Ali Kiggundu’s save from a free kick.
Coach Alex Gitta was left impressed with the performance of his players
“We had played three games without scoring a goal and getting any point this point and goals show that we are trying to correct the mistakes and the boys are gaining momentum and this point is going to help us alot as we play our next game against Maroons”
On the poor performance home Coach Alex thinks the boys just shy away amidst fans
“I think the poor performance is either the boys shy away home due to fans since they have proved to be playing so well away from home but we are yet to get a solution for that. Am very impressed with Abraham Nduggwa and I think he will be of much importance to our club”
UPDF now lies 13th with 5 points as Masavu remains rock bottom on the 16 team log with 4 points.
