Ten minutes later, Willis Otong restored Bul’s lead with a fine strike and the home side looked to be on their way to a second straight victory after defeating SC Villa 1-0 in the previous game.
However, Asaph Mwebaze’s side had other ideas and with 9 minutes to play, Ibrahim Dada restored purity for the Abanyakare to ensure that both sides walk home with just a single point.
