Entebbe F.C 0 – 0 Bul F.C
Entebbe and Bul football clubs have played to a score-less draw in the Uganda Premier League (UPL) fixture played at a slippery Nakivubo War Memorial stadium turf on Friday.
The two sides, marking their 7th game apiece in the league looked desperate to secure the much sought victory.
Entebbe F.C in the wake of last week’s 0 – 5 drubbing at the hands of URA needed to avoid any other slips ups against a strong Bul F.C side whose last result was a hard fought goal-less draw against SC Villa.
Game of contrasting 2 halves:
Whereas Bul, a Jinja based outfit dominated the opening 45 minutes that saw team skipper, Patrick ‘Crespo’ Asiku twice missing the target narrowly, Entebbe F.C quickly regrouped and looked the better side for the closing half.
Entebbe F.C striker, Dan Sewava had the best chance of the day with 20 minutes left on the clock when Allan Kizza’s through ball got him with a one on man situation with goal keeper, Franco Oringa.
The stocky forward chipped the ball over the advancing goal keeper but his effort also eluded the goal bar- much to the disappointment of the striker, his teammates and the entire bench who had started the celebrations.
BUL F.C’s Robert Achema delivers a curling corner at Nakivubo Stadium.
The draw is Entebbe F.C’s second in 7 games and just adds a point to their meager 5 total collection this season so far while it is Bul F.C’s 4 draw of the season and they have 10 points fetched.
Entebbe F.C head tactician, Mathias Lule was pleased with the point picked but urged his charges to seek consistent results in a bid to avoid relegation.

“We played well though scoring still haunts the team. Hope we pick up the momentum early in the season”, Lule, who is also national U-17 team told the media.
Kefa Kisala, Bul F.C head coach attributed his team’s on the missed first half chances.
“We should have buried off this game as early as the first half if we had scored all the chances. Anyway, we hope to utilize our home advantage in the next game against Lweza at home.” Kisala, told the media shortly after the game.
