BIG LEAGUE: Police, Kitara fire blanks at Kavumba


Sinan Rajub SENOGA

Kitara FC and Police FC have played out a dull goalless draw in the only Big League game played at Kavumba.

Kitara came into this fixture seeking to extend their lead on top of the table while 5th placed Police sought to keep tabs on the coveted promotion places.

The Cops lacked inspiration upfront but had attempts through Emmanuel Mugume who came close but couldn’t beat Farouk Yawe in the Kitara goal.

Kitara had attempts through their lead attackers Patrick Kaddu and John Wesley Kisakye but couldn’t hit target.

The biggest chance of the game came in the 83rd minute when Kitara’s Clinton Kamugisha tapped home a spilled ball from a Moses Sseruyidde free kick but his strike was cancelled for offside.

Kamugisha had just replaced Erick Muber a few seconds ago.

Kitara coach Mark Twinamatsiko dubbed the draw as a loss for his side.

” It’s a loss for us because we came expecting a win and we didn’t win. We didn’t even score a single goal. It’s a bad for us.” Twinamatsiko said in a post match interview.

Twinamatsiko said the offside call for Kamugisha’s goal wasn’t a better judgement for him.

” No problem, it’s his (referee’s) decision because by the time the ball was played, the players were onside. Maybe he was in a better angle than me but to me it wasn’t a better judgement for me.”

He added.

Kitara now lead the table with 17 points, four better than second placed Mbarara City who will play against Ndejje on Friday.
