Offside goals define Express, Gadaffi draw



Two controversial goals have taken center stage as Express FC and Gaddafi laboured to pick a point in a rescheduled match that was meant to be played yesterday but for the heavy downpour.

Express went infront early in the 8th minute when Allan Kayiwa tucked home a rebound from a Joseph Dhata shot that hit the wood work and fell into his way.

Wasswa Bbosa got into a heated disagreement with Ronald Madanda’s decision after the scorer appeared to be off side but the referee stood his position.

Bbosa was again handed another headache after left back Sadiq Sekyembe slid on the slippery surface and awkwardly fell to the ground and injured his knee.

He was stretchered off with Simon Serunkuuma coming on as his replacement.


The half time whistle went with the hosts in line to achieving their second win of the season.

On resumption, the visitors engaged a strong gear and made a series of attacks but James Otim in Express’ goal stood tall.

He was however not equal to Brian Kalumba’s close range effort which also appeared to have come from an offside position to level matters for the visitors in minute 58.

Express reacted in search for an immediate response but chances that fell to Anwar Ntege and Enoc Sebaggala were put to waste.

Gaddafi remain winless in three league matches and in 11th position, whereas Express go to 4 points and 6th on the log.

Next in line for the Red Eagles is a trip to Bombo against Onduparaka on October 29, whereas Gaddafi will host BUL FC in the Jinja derby.
