Blacks Power and Arua Hill played out to a goalless draw in a Uganda premier league game held at Aki Bua Stadium in Lira.

The two sides, meeting for the first time in Uganda premier League failed to find a break through in the entire game.

It is the second point picked for new side Blacks Power, who are now under the stewardship of Hussein Mbalangu.

For Arua Hill, the draw puts a stop on their good run they had enjoyed in the opening two games. They now move to seven points after three games so far.

Facing his former bosses, Mbalangu’s side proved a hard nut to crack as they denied a high flying side in Arua Hill throughout the opening exchanges.

But the two sides had a share of chances before the break.

Bronson Nsubuga saw his effort was kept out by Arua Hill Goalkeeper Richard Anyama while Siwu Michael’s was also denied from a free kick.

On the other end, Rashid Toha’s free kick was saved by goalkeeper Tonny Kyamera and this served as Arua Hill’s best chance before the break.

After the break, the situation was not that different as the two once again looked blunt in the final third.

Arua Hill’s Rashid Kawawa, Samuel Ssekamate all came closer but could not find a break through.

Blacks Power head coach Hussein Mbalangu will feel proud for picking a point against his former bosses and will be seeking to build on that to put things right at the Lira based club. They now move to the 13th position with 2 points after five games.

For Arua Hill, they move to seven points but dropped to the fifth position after three games in the season.

What Next- Arua Hill will host UPDF at Barifa next week on Friday while Blacks Power will be away to KCCA the following day at Lugogo.
