  • Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) 0-0 SC Villa Jogoo

Sports Club Villa Jogoo and Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) football club played to a goal-less draw at the Mandela National National stadium on Saturday evening.

URA had a first half goal by Ajab Abdulrahman whose header was canceled by referee Dennis Batte for alleged infringement on goalkeeper Samson Kirya.

Godfrey Lwesibawa, Allan Kyambadde and Martin Kizza were vibrant for the Jogoos in the first half of the game.

Defender Ibrahim Kiyemba would have scored deep in the second but his ground cross was well thwarted by goalkeeper Alionzi Nafian who had replaced injured Mathias Muwanga in the second half.

Vitalis Tabu, Yubu Bogere and Ambrose Kirya were the players introduced for the Jogoos for Abel Eturude, Alex Kitata and Martin Kizza respectively.

URA goalkeeper Mathias Muwanga limped out  following an injury and his place was taken by Alionzi Nafian Legason.

Robert Mukoghotya paved way for Hudu Mulkyi and Charles Sempa replaced Brian Majwega.

Tabu tested Alionzi with a free kick and got involved in the thick of action quickly after his introduction.

SC Villa Jogoo drops to 5th on the log with 12 points. URA gets to 9 points and are currently 11th on the table standings.
