Eric Kambale scored in the second half to pull back a point for Express against URA in the StarTimes Premier League at Mutesa II Stadium on Friday.
URA took the lead after Sadiq Sekyembe turned in his net but Kambale’s effort squared the result.
In the third ball, Steven Dese Mukwala had a chance to give URA a quick lead but his effort to find the far post instead went above the crossbar after beating Express defence.
Eleven minutes later, Joseph Akadwanaho met the ball in a great position but his resultant effort flew in the skies.
Charles Musige’s corner kick met Sadiq Sekyembe just a foot away from the goal line but the defender’s instead placed the ball off the target giving away a clear cut chance.
With a minute to hit half an hour mark, Patrick Mbowa’s volley was directed to back of the net by Express defender Sekyembe to place the Tax Collectors ahead.
Seven minutes into the second half, Ivan Mayanja beat Mbowa before he unleashed a shot off the post and later Akwadanaho’s rebound went narrowly wide.
In the 72nd minute, Eric Kenzo Kambale calmly slotted home John Byamukama’s cross to level matters at Wankulukuku.
