Maroons FC intensified their survival fight after overcoming Wasswa Bbosa’s Tooro United with a 2-1 victory at the Luzira prisons ground.
Mid-season transfer signings Bronson Nsubuga and Isaac Otto were both on target in the first half to ensure a seventh win of the season for the Prisons Warders.
Nsubuga who was also named man of the match put the home side in the lead in the 26th minute before Otto doubled the scoreline inside the added three minutes of the first half.
John Toki Byamukama pulled one back for Tooro United three minutes to normal time but only turned out to be a consolation.
Maroons’ duo of Belmos Opio and Brian Majwega were the only players booked by referee Siraje Mpyangu.
Victory propelled Maroons to the 12th place with 29 points, five above the relegation red line.
Tooro United slipped from the fifth to the sixth place with 39 points accumulated from 26 league outings.
Robert Sekweyama’s charges will play against fellow relegation candidates Nyamityobora on Saturday 20th April at Kakyeka.
