Defending Azam Uganda Premier League (UPL) champions Vipers’ mixed form continued as they ceded further ground in the race to the 2016 title with a goalless draw at Police on Tuesday.
The result leaves coach George Nsimbe’s men eight points behind leaders KCCA, who saw off Bright Stars 2-1 in Matugga to move to 44 points.
Vipers will, however, take consolation from the fact that they have played one game fewer than KCCA.
The two-time winners came into this fixture on the back of only two wins from the previous five matches.
Their opponents, Police, have also been enduring a stop-start season and came into this on the back of two wins and three defeats in their last five.
The point off Vipers, who they beat 3-1 in the first round, leaves Police seventh but moves them to 33 points.
