Earlier into the second half, inspirational URA FC skipper Shafik Kagimu nearly gave his side the lead but was denied by a fantastic Simon Tamale save.

Samuel Ssekamate and Marvin Joseph had the best chances for the hosts in a game of limited scoring opportunities.

The stalemate however, takes Sam Ssimbwa’s charges to the table summit with 44 points they have accumulated in 20 games and one above second placed Vipers.
