Bright Stars have held Uganda Police Football Club to a one-all draw in the Star-Times Uganda Premier league march held at MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo. Joseph Janjali’s second-half goal was enough to deny the Cops a vital home win after leading almost the entire game after a long-term break of the season.

Police took the lead through a ninth-minute goal by veteran midfielder Tonny Mawejje, which helped the Cops to lead almost the tire game. However, Bright Stars levelled the game late in the 88th minute through Joseph Janjali from a free-kick.

Both teams tried to score other goals before halftime with Police’s Duncan Sseninde failing to finish two chances created by Denis Rukundo. The Police custodian Derrick Ochan denied Janjali a chance to get another goal.  

  Several Police FC players and their head coach, Abdallah Mubiru left disappointed with the result after full time. The game takes Bright Stars to 42 points and keeps it in the fifth position while police have also remained in the sixth position with 40 points.  

Both teams have remained with three games. The draw means that Police has gone eight games without a single win. Police will visit Onduparaka in their next fixture while Bright Star will face Kyetume next week.

MYDA FC has also confirmed relegation to the FUFA Big league after falling to BUL FC 1-6. Myda FC, which has been making its debut in the top flight, has only collected 14 points in 27 games.
