Basani Nasur Saafi had put the hosts in the lead in the first half as the Cops threatened to complete a double over Fred Kajoba’s side.

Basani put the Cops in the lead just after eight minutes to silence the home crowd.

Before half time break, Kajoba made a change with Alfred Onek replacing Rajab Kakooza and Dan Birikwalira came on for Moses Okot at the start of the second period.

The hosts piled pressure on the visitors in the second half and they were repaid in the 70th minute when Kacancu drew level with a fine strike.

The draw leaves both sides in unchanged positions with Police 9th on 37 points while Bright Stars are 10th with two points adrift.
