Abdallah Salim came off the bench at the beginning of the second half to inspire Villa to a two-all draw against Wakiso Giants.
The first half was a Wakiso Giants show: we were so sloppy and struggled a lot in the first 45 minutes. Some of our players were struggling to keep up with their assigned roles on the day.
Wakiso Giants made their intentions known right from the start. In the 12th minute, they opened the scoring through Kipson Atuheire who fooled the defence and goalkeeper like he was going to pass only to find the back of the net.
In a bid to try and find an equaliser, Ronald Olaki raised high in an aerial duel with an opponent only to have a head collision. Olaki could not continue due to a head and was replaced by Faizol Muwawu in the 22nd minute.
Wakiso Giants continued attacking a lacklustre Villa mainly through the left side of our defence. On many occasions, they caught left back Derrick Ndahiro out of position. In an effort to catch up with his defending duties, Ndahiro made a number of fouls. The referee warned and later booked him in the 25th minute.
