BUL FC has managed a double over Police FC after playing to a 2-1 win at FUFA Technical Center Njeru.
First half goals from captain Jimmy Kulaba and James Otim sealed off maximum points for Peter Onen’s side with Ronald Nyanzi pulling one back for the Cops.
Skipper Jimmy Kulaba put the hosts in the lead as early as the 15th minute.
The home side continued mounting pressure to the visiting team and this paid off in the 23rd minute when James Otim scored the second goal of the goal.
Johnson Odong and Juma Balinnya tried their luck but found it hard to break through BUL FC defence led by captain Jimmy Kulaba.
Abdullah Mubiru’s men managed to pull one back in the 53rd minute through Ronald Nyanzi.
It should be noted that Nyanzi is the same player who scored in the first round at Lugogo.

” It has not been an easy game but we knew the opponent we were facing and knew how to handle the game thank God for the maximum points ”
” Many continue doubting us and the position we are but we are here to prove our worth and our target is continuing to win more games.”
BUL FC moves 5th with 35 points and the Cops move a position down to 9th with 29 points.
