Busitema University head coach Ronald Lumala and his counterpart Medhi Nyanzi of Bugema University were both left satisfied with a stalemate.

The two Institutions played to a barren draw in the Pepsi University Football League game played at Rock View Stadium in Busitema on Sunday.

“It was a fair game and we pushed so hard for a goal in the entire 90 minutes but it could not come,” Lumala said after the game before adding.

“We have picked a point against the strongest team in the group and I believe it is a vital one on which we shall build hoping to qualify for the next stage,” he added.

On the other hand, Bugema’s Nyanzi noted that his side was a bit fatigued but he will as well take the point earned against Busitema.

“My players had heavy legs due to fatigue and the sun was as well too much but it is good that we have managed to earn a point.”

“Our main focus remains on topping this group and we are now looking forward to our next game,” Nyanzi noted.

After two games in Group F, Bugema leads proceedings with four points, Islamic University In Uganda follows in second place with three points while Busitema is bottom with one point.

Group F has three teams meaning that only the table leader will progress to the next stage of the competition. Action in the University Football League continues throughout the week.
