The pair shared one-all spoils at the Kavumba Recreation Grounds on Tuesday, but Bright Stars' head coach Asaph Mwebaze feels his side played well enough to deserve more than a point.

Soltilo Bright Stars FC and Express FC played out a tenth Uganda Premier League stalemate in the last ten seasons.

The pair shared one-all spoils at the Kavumba Recreation Grounds on Tuesday, but Bright Stars' head coach Asaph Mwebaze feels his side played well enough to deserve more than a point.

"We could have taken three points today, but we just let the game go (and Express took advantage)," said a disappointed Mwebaze to the media after the game.

"We failed to get a second goal to take to take all the points, we also had a penalty shout, but unfortunately, it didn't happen."

The result had Bright Stars snatch four points off Express in the current campaign after beating them 2-0 in the first round at the Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.

It also had the Stars slip on the 15-team table to 11th with 28 points after 22 matches.

"We dropped two points after allowing them back into the game after initially playing well," Mwebaze added.

"What we need is to straighten up a few things, continue doing what we have to do, and we'll be back into getting positive results."

It won't be long before Bright Stars return to action against BUL FC away in Jinja on Friday, reflecting how tight the schedule is for Mwebaze's side.

Meanwhile, Express occupy ninth with 29 points and will, on Friday, welcome seventh-placed Wakiso Giants FC at Wankulukuku.
