In the second half, the Lions upped their game, became more physical and pinned the Saints in their own half.

The Lions took out Saints holding midfield Seif Khamis with a series of tackles. He was replaced, injured by Alex Kitata.

The home team piled on more pressure but the Saints resisted.

The Lions then took out Saints solid centre back Geofrey Bwire. He was replaced by Joseph Buule.

But still the Saints resisted and could have killed the game had Kitata converted on the counter. Brian Mutebi also fluffed his effort minutes later.

At 90 minutes the Saints were leading 1-0 but the Lions kept on looking. The referee then indicated he would play FOUR more minutes.

But referee kept the game going for an incredible 11 extra minutes until Mucureezi pounced on an aerial ball deep into the Saints half, in the failing light, to slot home the equalizer.

The referee then ended the game immediately on the restart.

The Saints were disappointed but happy to have gotten a point away from home.

Next Up The Saints host Artland at Namboole.
