Kyetume Football Club and Kansai Plascon will battle for the final slot of the 2019-20 Uganda Premier League on Saturday at the StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo.

The two sides advanced to the finals of the FUFA Big League playoffs on Thursday in which the winner will join Proline and Wakiso Giants, the other side already qualified for the Premier League.

Ironically, both sides edged their opponents via a penalty shootout. In the early kickoff, Kyetume saw out Dove Football Club 3-2 after normal time hand ended two-all.

Dove twice came from down to force the shootout. Wahab Lwanga connected in his own net following a teasing low cross from veteran winger Vincent Kayizzi in the 36th minute but Ronald Kyamunywa drew Dove level twelve minutes after the break.

With a quarter an hour to fulltime, Ali Ngongo restored Kyetume’s lead but it lasted only ten minutes as goalkeeper Hussein Ndugwa converted from the spot to level the game.

Denis Lubowa missed Kyetume’s first kick from the penalty sport but Steven Sande and Owen Kasule scored in succession to restore hope. Ali Ngongo, the scorer of the second goal, missed his kick but Vincent Kayizzi converted the kick that sent Kyetume to the playoff final.

While Robert Santos Baluku and Andrew Omego scored Dove’s first two kicks Hussein Ndugwa, who scored from the spot in regulation time, as well Samson Elianu and John Tusubira missed their kicks.

Henry Kitegenyi headed Kansai Plascon in the lead with barely ten minutes on the clock but the superb header was cancelled by Amis Muwonge in added time.
