URA FC were held by Wakiso Giants to a goalless in the Uganda premier league game played at the Visions of Arena in Ndejje.

This was Wakiso’s 7th draw of the season already and they remain as one of three sides that are still unbeaten this campaign.

Hosts URA FC would have led the game inside 30minutes but forward Dada Ibrahim had his effort denied by Wakiso Giants custodian Samson Kirya.

Forward Cromwell Rwothomio who netted a hat trick against MYDA, also had his chances to put the hosts ahead but couldn’t capitalize.

URA FC kicked off the second half with an early substitution as forward Steven Mukwala came on for Davis Ssali, hoping for inspiration in the final third.

Shafiq Kagimu saw a strike bounce off the woodwork and it was a similar outcome for Steven Mukwala.

In the final minute, Kagimu volleyed over from close range as the two sides settled for a point apiece.

URA are now 8th on the Uganda Premier League table with 15points from eight games while Wakiso drops to 10th on as many points.

In their next fixtures, URA takes on Kitara FC away from home while Wakiso Giants welcome KCCA FC at Wakissha.
