KCCA FC were held to a 1-1 draw to continue their poor run at Kakyeka Stadium.
The Kasasiro Boys took a first half lead through Usama Arafat who lashed onto Patrick Kaddu’s flick to head home inside the opening three minutes.
But Mbarara City levelled matters at the start of the second (half) as Jude Ssemugabi lashed onto Henry Kitegenyi’s low cross to side-foot past Derrick Ochan.
It was another game that KCCA failed to dominate as they allowed Mbarara City to grow into it.
Pistis Barenge almost snatched the whole points for the hosts but the lanky midfielder’s effort rattled the upright.
The result sees KCCA FC fail to break their jinx at Kakyeka as their barren run goes to five games without winning in Mbarara.
The draw left KCCA stay second with 36 points, three points behind leaders Vipers SC who are on 39 points while Mbarara are 13th on 16 points.
