JINJA – FUFA Big League Money-Bags, Wakiso Giants were held to their 6th draw in the 2018/19 FUFA Big League season on Thursday by Dove All Stars.
The contest at Bugembe Stadium in Jinja pitted the top two Elgon Group sides and after 90 minutes, they could not be separated.
Wakiso coach, Ibrahim Kirya maintained the same starting XI that defeated Entebbe 2-1 in the previous game and they did start well.
Geoffrey Luutu and Abdul Karim Kasule came close in the first half while Feni Ali failed to connect a low ball from Kasule with the goalkeeper already beaten.
Ivan Kiweewa replaced injured Clinton Kamugisha at the start of the second period and Ashraf Ziraaba also came on for Daff Luboobi moments later as the Sharks went for more fire power.
But the visitors were much improved after the break with a counter attacking strategy and they did a force two good saves from Ivan Mutumba.
At the opposite end, the chances were few but the best came in the 90th minute when Ziraba trickery beat everyone inside the area but with the goalie beaten, he opted to pass to Feni and the Dove defence cleared the danger.
