The first realistic chance towards goal came in the 28th minute off Shafik Kagimu’s cross but Feni Ali tap on the ball failed to get onto the target.

The game was virtually physical with Bright star’s Jimmy “Kachanga” Kakooza making several fouls but was lucky not to get into referee’s book.

Elkanah Nkugwa paved was replaced by Ronald Kigongo after recess for URA while Bright stars also brought on Joshua Kawadwa for Fred Segujja.

Feni Ali had a chance to give URA the lead after goalkeeper Nicholas Ssebwato lost the ball but midfielder Victor Aweko was swift enough to make a timely clearance.

Fred Kajjoba made two more changes introducing diminutive midfielder, Jjungu Methodius and Baker Lukooya for Yubu Bogere and Asiimwe Innocent respectively but the changes failed to pay off dividends.

The first shot on target came in the 71st minute with a powerful effort from Shafik Kagimu from a free kick but goalkeeper Ssebwato parried away the ball for a corner.

Congolese import Bokota Labama who blew hot and cold throughout the game was withdrawn for Peter Lwasa.

Kagimu had another chance on goal just outside the area but his feeble shot was easily collected by Ssebwato.

The result means URA draw the 9th game in the season and move one slot up to 5th on 18 points same as Onduparaka but the tax collectors have a better goal different.

Bright stars on the other hand remain in 7th position on 16points.
