Relegation candidates Sadolin Paints and Lweza played out to a goalless draw in the Uganda Premier League on Tuesday at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

In a game that had the Painters’ captain Ronald Lukungu red carded for unsporting behavior in the first half, the two sides fighting for their lives in the league fired blanks as none saw net.

The result means Sadolin Paints who were fresh from edging their Jinja rivals JMC 1-0 in the Jinja derby on Friday move a place up to tenth dislodging Police, who lost 4-3 to Express, on goal difference.

Meanwhile, for the ‘Oranje’ boys, the draw coupled with Bul’s morale-boosting victory over Bright Stars means they drop to the dreaded bottom three.

In their fight to escape the drop this term, Lweza plays Soana next when the league returns in a fortnight, while Peter Kirumira’s troops travel to the Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo to face on form Proline on April 1 in their next league engagement.
