BUL FC have added more salt into URA’s wounds by edging them 1-0 in Kakindu. The loss is Paul Nkata’s second since taking over from Ibrahim Kirya after losing to Onduparaka in his first game.
Debutant Douglas Owori was the hero of the day for the Jinja based club after converting a spot kick in the additional minutes of the game. Allan Munaba had fouled Hamisi Tibita in the forbidden area.
The game started on a high note with relentless attacks from the tax collectors with Brian Majwega and Moses Sseruyidde’s golden chances saved by William Ottongo off the line.
10 minutes into the first half, Moses Sseruyidde’s tap in was cleared by William Ottongo off the line when Hannington Ssebwalunyo was left on the ground crawling thus denying URA an early goal.
In the 35th minute, URA were reduced to ten men as goalkeeper Alionzi Nafian was given matching orders after handling the ball from outside the eighteen yards box. This saw Charles Ssempa paving way for Mathias Muwanga.
In the second half, BUL made early substitution in the 47 minute with Daniel Shabene paving way for Douglas Owori who increased pressure to URA backline.
Nicolas kagaba, Herman Wasswa were all called off the pitch for Shafik Kagimu and Hood Mulikyi respectively.
Today’s win lifted BUL to the 8th position with 21 points while URA went to the 9th position with 20 points
In the next fixture BUL will pay a trip to 15th placed Express FC at wankulukuku as URA will host Bright stars at Mandela National Stadium.
