The Saints 1-0 Maroons
Newcomers The Saints have confirmed their place in the 2016-17 Azam Uganda Premier League (UPL) season after a narrow win over already relegated Maroons.
Moses Basena’s side scored with ten minutes to time through goalie Yasin Mugabi from 12 yards after a foul in the area.
On loan from KCCA, Mugabi who has been superb since moving to the club in January kept his nerves to score the goal that confirms their survival.
With 36 points, 14th placed Simba can only manage 34 points even if they win all their remaining three games.
Maximum points also imply the team’s target of 25 second round points has been surpassed by one with six more to fight for.
The win was the sides’ tenth out of 28 games, six draws and 12 losses.
