Uganda Cranes custodian, information pills Denis Masinde Onyango has admitted that fellow compatriot; Ivan Bukenya’s Kaizer Chiefs could have escaped with the South African league popularly known as Premier League Soccer (PSL).

The 29-year-old admits his team, Mamelodi Sundowns who are the defending champs, can only shift their targets to the Nedbank cup if they are to have any hopes of a silverware.

“In every game we give our best.  Obviously the desire was there to win against Aces because the cup is much more in our hands than the league title,” Onyango is quoted by Sowetan.

The Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs extended their lead over Downs to 13 points, following their victory over Geoffrey Massa’s, University of Pretoria on Tuesday.

Kaizer Chiefs require just two wins from their remaining four PSL matches to secure this year’s Absa Premiership title.

“We are still fighting for the League. We still want to push Chiefs until the last game of the season,” he adds.
Kampala University salvaged a point away at Uganda Martyrs University (UMU) to earn their first point of the season.

Both teams came in the game pointless after losing two opening fixtures.

The Martyrs tried to capitalize on home support with Alex Katumba, pilule getting a pass from his defence but failed to beat off Mujyanama early in the opening minutes.


The City campus retaliated a minute later, more about registering the first but unsuccessful shot on goal through Bogere Yubu.

Despite the home resistance, the hosts latched the opener through Buga who struck a loose ball in the box to beat Bogere on goal just minutes to halftime.

After the break, hosts tried to absorb their hosts, coming close on the hour clock when Kamya curled a superb screamer which just flew high.

Six minutes later their pressure was paid off with a penalty after David Kamya was fouled by Tamale in KIU goal with Ochan calmly putting in.

Red card

The visitors were reduced to ten men when Muzahura was booked for the second time after fouling Kamya.  The game ended 1-1.


UMU: Muhammad Bogere, Francis Asonya, Godfrey Ochan, Godfrey Katumba, Julius Sserugo, Omar Swaibu, Julius Ssenkaali, Amos Muwanguzi, Emma Kamya, Daniel Alinaitwe and Alex Katumba.

KU: Simon Tamale, Timothy Mawagi, Fidele Mujyanama, Wilberforce Muzahura, David Yiga, Jafar Nende, Derrick Abigaba, Brian Liyingi, Derrick Mudali, Frank Ndugwa and Bogere Yubu.
