Saturday results

Mbarara City 0-0 SC Villa

NEC 1-1 Wakiso Giants

NEC missed the opportunity to go joint-top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table on Saturday as they drew 1-1 at home with Wakiso Giants.

A John Paul Achire own goal on 15 minutes had actually set Wakiso Giants on the road to victory only for Enoch Ssebagala to cancel it out seven minutes later and salvage NEC a point at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.

League debutants, NEC, could have gone level with BUL, host Kitara on Sunday, on 18 points had they beaten the Giants but will now remain fourth on 16 points. 

On their part, Wakiso Giants earned a point but remained third from bottom on just six from eight matches. 

In Western Uganda, 10-man Mbarara City and record 16-time champions, SC Villa, played out a goalless draw at Kakyeka Stadium. 

Mbarara’s Bakali Magumba saw red with 19 minutes left to play but the hosts held on for a point.

The Ankole Lions are 11th on eight points from as many matches, while Villa are just a place above them on nine points from seven matches.
