From Onduparaka returning to winning ways, Express FC woes deepening to Sserunkuma’s double at St. Mary’s stadium, ChimpReports’ Joel Muyita looks at the players that were outstanding and were awarded with man of the match accolades courtesy of Forte Bet.
Nelson Ssenkatuka (Bright stars FC)
The energetic forward struck twice as Bright stars edged past Express FC at the champions stadium in Mwererwe. His second and the match winner needed to beat almost the entire Express defence before slotting home.
The brace meant, he took his goal tally to eight this season just one behind the leading top scorer.
Rashid Okocha (Onduparaka FC)
One of the revelations of this season, Rashid Okocha has been consistent at left back for the Arua based side.
Despite being a late inclusion in the game against BUL FC after beating the late fitness test, Okocha put up a stunning performance as Onduparaka defeated BUL FC 1-0.
Dan Sserunkuma (Vipers SC)
His brace was enough to earn Vipers maximum points against Mbarara City FC and could have grabbed a hat trick had he not missed a penalty.
Victory meant the Venoms moved top of the table on 35 points while Sserunkuma also moved top of the scoring chart with nine goals.
Mike Kawooya (Soana FC)
In a game that witnessed four goals with either side(Kirinya Jinja SS and Soana Fc) scoring twice, defender Mike Kawooya was on the score sheet netting against his former team.
Fahad Bardiro(UPDF FC)
Bardiro’s performance since the start of the year has been impressive and was influential on Tuesday as UPDF FC defeated Police FC to keep their hopes of surviving relegation afloat.
