- BUL 3-0 KCCA
KCCA Football Club’s poor run of form continued as they suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to BUL Football Club on Tuesday.
The league defending champions went into the clash at FUFA Technical Center in Njeru on the back of a one-all draw with Bright Stars that was preceded by a defeat to Tooro United.
While the Kasasiro had a better record against BUL with just one loss to the Jinja based side in the previous meetings, it was the hosts that dominated right from the onset.
However, the first chance of the game fell to Mustafa Kizza in the 3rd minute of the game with his freekick punched out by goalie Abdul Kimera. The KCCA left-back later whipped in a dangerous cross but Mike Mutyaba and Sadat Anaku were late as the chance went begging.
BUL midfielder Musa Walangalira who came close on the quarter-hour mark with his effort going just off target was, moments later, denied by Charles Lukwago after being set up by Robert Mukongotya who troubled KCCA all game from the left flank.
In the 25th minute, Mukongotya turned in Kezironi Kizito to the strong right foot but his ground shot was inches wide of Lukwago’s post.
The hosts who were dangerous on the counter-attack took the deserved lead in the 34th minutes through Richard Wandyaka who, at the far post, shot into the roof from close range after the Kasasiro failed to deal with Mukongotya’s corner.
While KCCA looked more involved early in the second half, it was BUL that doubled their lead five minutes in against a run of play. Charles Sebutinde picked up a loose ball in his own half and played a one-two with Deogratius Ojok who set up Robert Mukongotya and the former URA forward beat Lukwago with a thunderbolt from a long way out.
KCCA’s best chance of the game fell to Sadat Anaku who shot directly at Kimera after being played through by Mike Mutyaba in the 58th minute. Mutyaba also shot directly at the goalkeeper from a freekick in the 70th minute.
With ten minutes to play, Musa Esenu who barely got playing time at KCCA sealed the points for BUL when he slotted past Lukwago after being played through by James Otim. The goal was Esenu’s first at the club
Maximum points took BUL top of the league table with 16 points from seven games, while KCCA dropped further down the log from 10th to 13th with 7 points from five matches.
The champions are just two points above the red zone.
