Ten man Sports Club Villa held league champions URA to a 2-all draw in the Bell Lager Uganda Super League at Mandela Stadium in a early match day kick-off.
Moses Ndawula scored Villa’s opener 22 minutes into the game tapping in a Apollo Kakaire cross that goal galvanised the Jogoos and they went into the half time break leading, but a resilient URA bounced back when former Villa player Augustine Nsumba levelled matters with a curling shot in the 64 minute to share the spoils.
Kakaire was sent off deep injury time for dissent by FIFA referee Fred Mufta. (Read our live commentary here ).
