KCCA FC 3-0 Paidha BA
Patrick Kaddu’s first half hat-trick – the first for the 2018/19 season – was just enough as KCCA humbled Paidha Black Angles at StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo.
The victory sees KCCA return to winning ways after the 3-2 loss to Express FC at Wankulukulu in their previous last outing in the league.
The scoreline may not suggest what truly happened on the pitch as the hosts could have scored more than three in either half in what was a dominant performance.
Kaddu as an individual, missed chances as it was the same case for Muzamir Mutyaba, Allan Okello among others.
In a one way avenue game, the visitors who didn’t trouble KCCA’s back line however looked improved in the second half but couldn’t bring one back to consolidate their travelling fans.
The victory extends KCCA’s lead atop – Mike Mutebi’s charges have collected 27 points from 12 games. The Lugogo based side are four points above second placed Onduparaka and six ahead of Vipers in third.
Paidha who have won once, have collected only four points and the side are still rock bottom – The team that will soon return to Zombo are the main contenders for the drop.
