Tuesday’s Result

Mbarara City FC 0-0 Vipers SC

Uganda Premier League champions Vipers SC were held to a goalless stalemate by hosts Mbarara City FC on Tuesday at the Kakyeeka Stadium.

It was a wholly dull affair as the Kakyeeka bumpy grounds didn’t permit any fluidity, with the cautious Venoms limited especially in attack.

The hosts threatened first, but Joseph Akandanwaho’s freekick was saved by our young goalkeeper Jack Komakech.

In the 22nd minute, Vipers then showed intent from Bright Anukani’s corner but Patrick Mbowa failed to make the right connection, for matters to stay leveled.

Playmaker Anukani was then forced off through injury in the 31st minute, to sum up a dull and frustrating half for Vipers.

We started the second half relatively brighter but we were only limited to mini chances as both Richard Matovu and Milton Karisa threatened.

Mbarara City nearly broke the deadlock in the 70th minute, but Akandanwaho’s effort was met with a timely interception from defender Livingstone Mulondo.

With no real intent from either team in the final stage of the game, Vipers and Mbarara eventually settled for a point.

Vipers, who have moved third with seven points in three games, will host SC Villa in their next match at the St Mary’s Stadium Kitende on October 20.

Vipers SC XI: Jack Komakech (GK), Ashraf Mandela, Richard Matovu, Patrick Mbowa, Siraje Sentamu, Bright Anukani, Abubakar Lawal, Yunus Sentamu, Milton Karisa (C), Mohamed Salem Ekbad.
