*KCCA FC 0-0 Proline FC
*Busoga United 1-0 Kyetume
KCCA FC missed chance to close gap atop after a goalless draw with Proline FC in a league game played at the Startimes stadium in Lugogo.
The draw leaves second placed KCCA three points behind Vipers who may stretch the gap to six points if they beat Wakiso Giants on Friday.
On the flip side of the coin, a point lifts Proline FC off the foot of the log.
In the closing half-hour, the derby tried to live as advertised with both sides going at each other in search for a winner.
Brian Unomy had two attempts on goal only unlucky to be denied by KCCA goalkeeper Ali Mwirusi.
Man of the match on the day Mwirusi also denied Joseph Mandela and Hamis Kizza on two occasions.
KCCA came up with some threatening forces but couldn’t find the back of the net in a game they will love to forget easily.
Erisa Ssekisambu would have broken the deadlock in the 63rd minute but his shot was kept out by goalkeeper Shatif magoola before Sadat Anaku rebound went over the bar.
The reigning league champions would have won the tie in a dramatic way at the end when Ibrahim Sendi almost scored in his own net off a Saddam Juma cross.
