Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Football Club ascended to the summit of the 2021-2022 StarTimes Uganda Premier League table standings after a 3-0 emphatic victory on the road away to Wakiso Giants at the Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium.

Sadat Happy Anaku, Davis Kasirye and Ashraf Mugume scored the goals for KCCA.

As early as the 7th minute, Anaku headed home the opener off a teasing cross by Ali Abubakar Gift.

Gift shredded off the challenge of Simon Namwanja before execution of a cross from the right flank that Anaku headed home.

The visitors doubled the lead when towering forward Kasirye rounded up advancing goalkeeper Samson Kirya after beating an off-side trap to control a high ball from Denis Iguma on 32 minutes.

On two occasions, KCCA captain Benjamin Ochan reacted quicker off the line to thwart forwards Frank Ssebufu and Ivan Bogere.
