Uganda Cup
Round of 32, First Leg
Blacks Power FC 0-2 BUL FC

BUL FC have largely struggled for consistence in the league this season and have been a shadow of themselves compared to their scintillating run last term(especially in the first round).

Currently placed 10th on the log with only 20 points collected and just 8 points above the drop zone, their 3-0 loss to KCCA FC last week pointed to a tough period ahead.

However, there was at least a sigh of relief for coach Arthur Kyesimira after his charges defeated Blacks Power FC (Formerly Bukedea Town Council FC) in the first leg of the round of 32 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

Simon Peter Oketch and Deogratius Ojok scored a goal apiece to help BUL FC secure a 2-0 won at Emokori Grounds.

Kyesimira was delighted with the performance and result indicating this gives the team advantage ahead of the return leg later this week.

‘I’m delighted for the performance the players put up. It was important that we picked a good result away and hopefully we can capitalize on it in the return leg.’ He said after the game.

It should be noted that this year’s edition of the Uganda Cup is played on a home and away basis except the final.

Additionally, it’s only teams from the Uganda Premier League and the FUFA Big League that are taking part unlike the previous editions where even non-league teams would participate.
