URA FC held Sports Club villa to a 1-all draw at the Luzira Prisons ground in the Startimes Uganda Premier League.
On a muddy afternoon, SC Villa started the game without some of their crucial players including the Club’s last season top scorer, Bashir Mutanda, midfielders Amir Kakomo and David Owori who have been instrumental in Edward Kaziba and Ibrahim Kirya’s setup.
URA FC had a penalty appeal turned down by referee William Oloya in the 19th minute when Joachim Ojera appeared to be brought down by Said Keni in the penalty area.
However, a minute later, the hosts were pushed to the back of the game, when Yaya Lutimba pushed Joachim Ojera off the ball in the penalty area and a penalty was awarded. Brian Majwega stepped up and put the visitors ahead.
Villa tried to push for an equalizer before the end of the first half but URA FC weren’t ready to let their lead slip before the end of the first half.
An eight-game unbeaten run was at stake until moments in added time when Hudu Mulikyi pushed down Faisal Muwawu in the penalty area.
A penalty was awarded for Ambrose Kirya to level matters for the hosts and extend their unbeaten run to 9 games.
SC Villa remain 4th after 10-games at 17 points. URA FC also remain fixed in 10th after 9-games with 11-points.
Riachard Wandyaka and Musa Esenu scored for BUL FC as the Jinja side defeated Kyetume FC by 2-0.
