Coach Alex Isabirye suffered another nightmare with Kirinya Jinja SS as his team were pegged to their sixth consecutive stalemate at Bugembe stadium.

Substitute Moses Ndawula drove in a stunning shot five minutes to time as the visitors edged closer to a lucky victory in a match well dominated by Kirinya Jinja.

Ashman Arishah had made a long clearance in front of goal which Musa Docca brushed to meet James Kasibante on the far end of the hosts goal. The former Bul winger calmed the ball and opted to set up Ndawula whose first time shot flew past a helpless Joel Mutakubwa.

Kirinya stepped up the attack with the late introduction of new signing Godfrey Mubiru who later on fell on the path of a loose ball from a goal melee and tapped in for the equaliser.

Coach Alex Isabirye could not finish the match and decided to walk to the changing room even before the ball was restarted. He later hinted on a possible resignation following the recent setback.

“I just don’t know what to say, drugs ” he told ChimpSport. “I have tried all I can to help the team, approved we created tonnes of chances as witnessed but the goals are still scarce.”

“I am now going to sit down and review the situation, try consult my friends and other stakeholders and then decide on the next course of action.”

The stalemate stagnates both teams on 15th and 11th positions respectively while Kirinya now equal Proline for the most number of draws registered in the league.
