Winger Patrick Kusemererwa caused problems from the right but his crosses could not .

Veteran Defender Doca Musa rose highest to head Oloro Nathan corner but his effort flew over.

Patrick Kusemererwa had an opportunity to net for the visitors but he mis-timed his volley.

On the hour mark, Oloro pulled one back for the visitors from the spot after Kusemererwa was brought down in the box by make-shift Right Back Seif Batte.

Kalumba had a decent opportunity to bury the game for UPDF but he missed a one on one with the goalkeeper who saved with his feet.
