Ulinzi Stars’ poor record at home continued on Saturday after being held to a 1-1 draw by Chemelil Sugar in a SportPesa Premier League match at the Afraha Stadium.
The soldiers should blame themselves for dropping two vital points as they seemed not to have carried their shooting boots on a day they should have won convincingly if the dozen scoring chances they created are anything to go by.
After wasting a golden opportunity in the 43rd minute, Elvis Nandwa put his act together to stab home the match opener for the soldiers in the 70th minute when he dribbled past a forest of defenders and unleashed a long range shot outside the box past goalkeeper Morgan Ahube.
However, the lead was short-lived as Musa Oundo slotted in a penalty five minutes later after one of the Ulinzi defenders handled inside the box.
This is the fifth consecutive draw at home for the soldiers who have only won once at their own backyard.
