Busoga United 0-1 Express
Allan Kayiwa remains Express’ go-to man after he struck yet again on Wednesday to clinch the Red Eagles a hard-earned 1-0 victory over Busoga United at Kakindu Stadium.
The forward struck four minutes from full time in a game punctuated by some objects being thrown to the pitch from the direction of home fans.
The disturbance, which was later contained by police for the match to resume, started after Express’ seemingly legitimate 86th minute goal.
Fortunately, the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) and Fufa had already scheduled a safety and security workshop next week to train stakeholders on how to handle situations as the above.
Kayiwa’s goal was his fifth and Express’ seventh this season, thrusting the striker to the top of scoring chats.
It was a fantastic free kick that brushed the inner woodwork into the back of the net.
Express’ fourth win in seven matches brings them level on 14 points with leaders BUL and Wakiso Giants.
The Red Eagles, who climbed three places up, are, however, third on the 15-team log because of an inferior goal difference to BUL and Wakiso Giants.
Busoga, who have won only two matches in eight, remain 12th on six points.
The league continues on Friday with Wakiso Giants hosting Gaddafi and champions Vipers SC welcoming the UPDF.
