The Venoms maintained a five-point lead on top of the table after the defending champions failed to beat them

KCCA FC held Ugandan Premier League Leaders Vipers SC to a goalless draw on Tuesday evening.

The defending champions had won the last meeting by a solitary goal and the Venoms had aimed at avenging the defeat. However, it was not going to be. Poor finishing, as well as good goalkeeping, was the order of the day.

Fabien Mutombora was in inspired form for the league leaders, keeping out efforts from Muzamiru Mutyaba, Erisa Ssekisambu, and Milke Mutyaba while at the other end, Fahad Bayo, Bobosi Byaruhanga and Geoffrey Wasswa could not beat Charles Lukwago. In another top-tier match, 10-man Busoga United beat URA FC 3-0 to hit the 33-point mark.
