NEC FC players celebrate after scoring a goal.
Jinja City's side, BUL FC has strengthened their grip on the Uganda Premier League title, after a one-goal draw with NEC FC at the Njeru-based FUFA technical center, on Sunday.

The two sides, which played their 10th league game lost several goal-scoring chances, but they managed to settle for one point each.

NEC's goal was scored by Rashid Okocha in the added minutes of the first half, whereas, BUL FC's equalizer was scored by Samuel Ssekamate in the 84th, minute of the game.

NEC's head coach, Hussein Mbalangu says that his side had managed to contain the game for the bigger part of the playing time, however, there was miscommunication between the goalkeeper and defense, which partly offered a leeway for BUL's Ssekamate to score.

Mbalangu however, says that one away point from a strong team like BUL is a strong statement for the boys, ahead of their forthcoming game in the league.

BUL tops the UPL table with 26 points, followed by Vipers with 23 points and Mbalangu, whose NEC lies in the third position says that he is targeting to win this league's title and all their efforts are geared towards ensuring that the boys can exhibit better performance throughout the remaining games.

Mbalangu adds that their technical team has instilled discipline and confidence in the boys to win against all the teams in UPL, irrespective of their experience and history in the league.

Meanwhile, BUL's head coach, Abbey Kikomeko says that his team suffered two red cards during their away encounter with Express FC, where their game ended in a one-goal draw, leaving them with major gaps in the defense area, a loophole he says to have been manipulated by NEC to score a goal during the first round.

Kikomeko further says that, most of his players were injured, which affected their fitness levels during the game, however, there are plans to conduct thorough medical drills, to ensure their wellness during their forthcoming game with Vipers FC.
