The clash at Kyabazinga stadium finished with the points being shared between the Eastern Giants and Onduparaka FC on Saturday.
The game started with a battle of possession in the midfield, with a first opportunity falling to BUL FC when Ivan Wani swerved a cross into the box, Karim Ndugwa was at the end of it with a good header that Kagiri Michael in the visitors goal spilled before Patrick Matovu cleared the lines.
Wani, Karim Ndugwa and Jerome Kirya had their efforts later well dealt with Kagiri before Emmanuel Oketch forced Emmanuel Kalyowa into a save from a free kick near the edge of the box as both sides went into the break unscathed.
The second-half saw more of the same from both sides, with Onduparaka starting to take their time over restarts.
The introduction of Martin Aprem, Ibrahim Nsimbe, Simon Peter Oketch and Ibrahim Mugulusi midway through the second-half showed the intent to win, but the Caterpillars held out for the draw.
Oketch had some chances for BUL, with the first and second being blocked by Ojara Denis, another saved by Kagiri while the forward saw his diagonal header sail far wide and begging.
Onduparaka’s realistic attempt on goal in the second half came through Rashid Yakin as the midfielder powered a shot into the hands of Kalyowa from range. Emmanuel Oketch had an attempt from edge of the area later but Kalyowa in BUL’s goal spread his body wide to block it.
BUL won a series of set pieces in the closing exchanges but away through was elusive. The result has seen the Eastern Giants accumulate 46 points from 27 matches but remained unmoved from the fourth place.
Our next task will be away to Express on May 7.
