- Mbarara City 0-0 Vipers
Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) capitalized on Vipers’ slip away to Mbarara City to close gap on the league leaders to just two points.
Christened as the Kasasiro boys, KCCA out-muscled Jackson Mayanja’s coached Kyetume 2-0 at the Mighty Arena in Jinja.
It was a blend of the youth and experienced as teenager Sadat Anaku and “aging” Erisa Ssekisambu found the goals for the visitors.
Anaku, a graduate from the KCCA Academy side scored the opener off an acute angle as early as the 9th minute, thanks to defender Peter Magambo’s rare assist off a defense splitter.
Sadly, Anaku was stretchered off with an injury for midfielder Nicolas Kasozi in the 20th minute.
Julius Poloto forced a superb save from Kyetume goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa as KCCA pushed for a kill on the opening half-hour mark.
KCCA extended the lead through Ssekisambu who headed home Mustafa Kizza’s telling delivery on the stroke of half time.
The home side rallied to earn at least a goal but their closest opportunity witnessed defender Benon Tahomera miss target from a distant free-kick 17 minutes from full time.
The victory means KCCA is on 41 points, two adrift the leaders Vipers who were held by Mbarara City at the Bombo Barracks to a goalless stalemate on the same day.
KCCA visits URA at the Arena of Visions at Ndejje University, Bombo on Friday.
Kyetume will play Proline on Sunday, 2nd February 2020 at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.
