Gaddafi 1-1 BUL FC – Kakindu
UPDF FC 0-1 Wakiso Giants – Bombo
Gaddafi FC secured a 1-1 draw against 10-man BUL FC in the Uganda Premier league match played at Kakindu stadium in Jinja.
The soldier boys needed to come from a goal down as the Busoga derby ended with spoils shared despite BUL having Walter Ochora sent off.
Bakali Magumba scored the equaliser in the 61st minute after Ibrahim Kazindula had put the visitors ahead with a first half penalty in the 13th minute.
BUL FC dominated in the first half as they created a couple of chances and pilled pressure to the Gaddafi FC defence.
And their reward was a penalty in 13th minute after Shafik Bakaki had handled the ball in the box for Kazindula to find the net.
BUL FC kept on pilling the pressure but goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa made a couple of saves with the game going into the break with the visitors in a 1-0 lead.
In the second stanza, Gaddafi FC recharged their energies and came back stronger to take the game to their visitors as they dominated with a better possession of the game.
In the 61st minute, Magumba Bakali tapped in from close range to level the scores after beating goalkeeper Emmanuel Kalyowa.
BUL FC were reduced to 10 men as defender Walter Ochora received his matching orders for unsportsmanlike conduct after kicking the goalscorer Magumba Bakali off the ball.
But Gaddafi failed to capitalise on their numerical advantage before the final whistle.
Gaddafi FC remain winless in the league with three consecutive draws picked in their last four games.
They will return to action in another Eastern region derby as they will travel to face Busoga United whereas BUL FC will be home to welcome Onduparaka in their next game.
