Proline Vs Onduparaka – Lugogo @ 4pm
Geoffrey Sserunkuma grabbed his 10th goal of the season and Muzamir Mutyaba added the other as KCCA kicked off their second round of the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) campaign with a 2-0 victory over 10-man Bul at Lugogo on Tuesday.
The result moves KCCA to 35 points, three more than SC Villa, who could only draw goalless with Bright Stars in Matugga.
Defeat for Bul leaves them third from bottom with just 13 points from 16 matches.
It was a fitting result for manager Mike Mutebi’s KCCA as they prepare for their Caf Champions League encounter against Angolan club Primeiro de Agosto on Friday.
Sserunkuma put the champions ahead after just three minutes when he helped home Mutyaba’s corner.
Mutyaba later midway the second half made it 2-0 from a wonderfully executed free kick after goalkeeper Brian Bwete’s sending off on the hour.
Bwete was shown a straight red card by referee Mashood Ssali after the goalkeeper handled outside the 18-yard box.
Yet the story could have been different had Bul buried their chances and the goalpost been more lenient for the visitors.
David Bagoole could have levelled terms midway the first half only for his header to be cleared off the line.
The forward was at it again after recess, this time one-on-one with Charles Lukwago but the hosts’ goalkeeper denying him.
Second half substitute Yudah Mugalu could also have brought Bul back into contention but his turn-and-shoot effort inside the area ricocheted off the lower post as KCCA saw out the game.
Elsewhere, SC Villa drew goalless with Bright Stars in Matugga, Vipers won 2-0 at home to Lweza, Express drew 1-1 with The Saints while Police beat visitors Sadolin Paints 2-0 at Nakivubo.
URA squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with bottom placed JMC Hippos while Soana played to a 1-1 draw with Kirinya Jinja SS in Njeru.
