Tooro United Football Club dearly missed the opportunity to seal a direct slot to the Uganda Premier League on match day 13 of the 2021 FUFA Big League.

Referee Ronald Kirangwa pointed to the spot deep in the added minutes after 90 minutes but on two occasions; Tooro United missed from 12 yards – thanks to the effort of Luwero United goalkeeper Herman Mugoya.

First, Denis Ojara missed the initial penalty before the second one was also missed by Isaac Mpagi upon retake after the goalkeeper had hurriedly moved off his line before the kicker’s shot.

Tooro United has another chance to make it count when they host Kigezi Home Boyz this Saturday at the Mutesa II Wankulukuku Stadium in Kabowa.
