Kajjoba’s charges finished with ten men with Abdunoor Kanana receiving marching orders midway through the second half.

JMC Hippos asked more questions but failed to put to use the several half chances they created and always looked blunt in the final third.

Diminutive midfielder Vianey Ssekajjugo had the first chance on goal in the 10th minute receiving a well laid cross from Moses Batali but fired direct at goalkeeper Nicholas Ssebwato.

Batali and Ssekajjugo were at it again ten minutes later with a quick counter attack but defender Abdunoor Kanana made a timely interception to deny the duo chance.

JMC Hippos kept pilling pressure on the visitors but could not get the cutting edge and the two teams headed into the mandatory break goalless.

Fred Kajjoba called for double substitution in the 55th minute with Kokas Opejo and Farouk Banga replacing Methodius Jjungu and Jimmy Kakooza respectively.

Four minutes after the hour mark, medications forward Abdurahman Ajab had a quick turn inside Bright stars box but his effort sailed above the goal area.

Ajab made a sole run towards goal but Kanaana pulled him down just outside the area and the later was sent off by centre referee Batte.

Despite JMC Hippos coach Lutaalo introducing Dan Shabena, Bright stars held on to earn at least a point.

The result means JMC Hippos remain bottom of the table on 4 points while Bright stars drop to 8th on 17 points
