It was Mike Mutebi’s first appearance in the garbage collectors’ touchline since the kick off of the second round having served out his four match touchline ban.
Mustafa Kiiza drew first blood for KCCA FC in the first minute of the game with a cracking freekick from the edge of the box into the far right corner of Davis Mutebi’s goal.
This was followed by several attempts from both sides but Police could not level till the end of the first half.
The cops returned a different entity in the second stanza as they asked un relanting questions to KCCA FC until they finally got what thet deserved.
Their star forward Juma Balinya finally restored parity in the 84th minute with a smart chip over Charles Lukwago to go top of the goal scorers charts with his 12th of the seaaon.
Balinya had earlier beaten Lukwago in an almost similar fashion but goal was ruled out for a foul in the build up.
Police FC bossed possesion and had the better of the chances over all but neither side could peel away as it stayed level till the final whistle.
Both teams must have been happy about the result. For Police FC it was a huge inprovement on their 6-3 humiliation in the first round, while the shaky KCCA FC were lucky not to lose this one.
The draw leaves Police FC eighth with 28 points while KCCA FC remains top with 45 points.
