KCCA Football Club dropped two crucial points during their one all home draw with league debutants Mbarara City at Lugogo on Tuesday.

Midfielder Muzamiru Mutyaba put the 12 time league winners ahead with a well converted penalty.

South Sudanese goal scoring import Maqueth Wol found the equalizer four minutes after the restart of the game in the second half.

Habibu Kavuma got cautioned by FIFA Referee Brian Miiro Nsubuga in the 51st minute.

Substitute Jackson Nunda had a second half goal disallowed, a moment that left many KCCA fans frustrated.

Mbarara City’s Clinton Kamugisha and Sam Kansiime were also booked for unsporting conduct in the 64th and 88th minutes respectively.

This was Mbarara City’s second successive one all draw in four days after their home stalemate with URA FC on Friday.
