Arua Hill FC who are currently on top of the Elgon group faced the second-placed Gaddafi FC in the second round of the FUFA Big League after a 2-2 draw in the first round in April this year.

Arua Hill SC needed 3 points to confirm their qualification to the Uganda Premier League next season but they managed to collect only one point from the game. However, according to the table standings even if Arua Hill loses their last game against the already relegated Paidha Black Angels Gaddafi will need to win their game against Calvary FC with a goal difference of at least 8 goals.

The game played at Kyabazinga Stadium had few clear cut chances with both teams failing to deliver in the final third.

This is their second draw in the League this season after a 2-2 draw in the first round way back in April this year.

Gaddafi FC was unlucky in the first encounter when their Captain Ngobi Pascal sustained an injury and he was replaced by Massa Ibrahim in the 34th minute.

Gaddafi FC tried to make some changes to improve on their attack by introducing Obele Ronal for Bamukyaye Mark in the 70th minute and Bithum Ronald for Madondo Joel in the 80th Minute but their substitutions didn’t yield anything against the solid defence of Arua Hill SC which has conceded only seven goals in the league this season and the game ended 0-0.
