Wakiso Giants recorded the biggest win in the 7 FUFA Big League games played on Thursday 31st January.
The Purple Sharks defeated Amuka Bright Stars 3-0 at Bugembe to maintain their lead on the Elgon group table.
New signings Yasin Mugume, Hakim Senkumba and Norman Ogik were all handed their debuts by coach Ibrahim Kirya.
Mugume and Ogik were on the score sheet together with the team’s skipper Feni Ali to ensure an easy victory for Wakiso Giants.
After a goalless half time, Mugume broke the deadlock with an easy tap in at the hour mark before Feni made it 2-0 moments ago.
Ogik put the icing on the cake at the stoke of full time while Amuka Bright Stars’ midfielder Fred Watango saw red following foul play on Mugume.
Wakiso Giants extend their unbeaten run to 11 games and go 4 points clear of second placed Dove All Stars who will be in action on Sunday against Kataka FC.
Kitara Football Club edged Rwenzori group table leaders Proline 1-0 at Lugogo to register 5th win of the campaign which is also the first under new coach Richard Makumbi.
