Wakiso Giants 2-0 Nebbi Central FC
Kyabazinga stadium, Bugembe
Wakiso Giants maintained their grip at the top of the table in Elgon group after registering a 2-0 win against Nebbi Central on Thursday.
Abdul Karim Kasule and Muwadda Kateregga scored a goal each to guide the Purple Sharks to their third home win in as many games and their fourth overall.
The home wins include Kataka FC( 3-0), UPDF FC( 1-0) and Nebbi Central FC(2-0) and the away win came against Bukedea TC(1-0).
Wakiso Giants began the better side and created numerous chances before the opening goal came in the 13th minute.
Kasule got the first attempt in the 7th minute when he was teed up inside the box by Clinton Kamugisha but the latter failed to control the ball.
Two minutes later, Ernest Daff Lubobi went through on goal via the right flank but his cross was poor with the ball going wide.
The home side kept pressing in pursuit for an early goal and the efforts paid off dividends when Kasule struck home in the 13th minute.
However, Nebbi Central FC almost equalised immediately just from the restart when Wakiso Giants players who were all inside their own half were still celebrating.
Luboobi could have doubled the lead in the 25th when Feni Ali set up him with a back heel but his feeble shot was easily collected by goalkeeper Christopher Nikuma.
In the second half, Nebbi called for changes in a bid to chase the game bringing on Ramathan Sabit and Victor Aweko.
Despite stepping up efforts in the second stanza, Nebbi Central failed to find the cutting edge.
Right back Muwadda doubled the lead seven minutes to time heading home Ziraba’s cross.
The win means Wakiso Giants remain top of the table on 16 points.
