Kyetume Football Club piped visiting Busoga United 1-0 at the Nakisunga Ssaza play ground on match day 19 of the 2020-21 Uganda Premier League.

Left back Richard Matovu scored the all important goal for the side christened as “The Slaughters”.

Matovu’s goal arrived in the final stanza of the game with the game possibly destined for a possible stalemate.

The opening 45 minutes had ended goal-less with Kyetume missing a penalty when defender Musitafa Mujjuzi, the usual penalty taker for the side blasted over his kick from 12 yards.

Midfielder Nicholas Kasozi was named the pilsner player of the match for the outstanding individual display in the game.
