Denis Iguma’s first half header and Samuel Ssenyonjo’s strike were all KCCA FC needed to grab the three points on Friday evening.
Moses Aliro had the game’s first moment of offensive promise in the 9th minute, but Mbarara’s custodian Ssekeba Mohammed made a spectacular block.
Eight minutes later, Aliro came tormenting again but this time around Mukundane cleared his lines.
In the 39th minute, Aliro was fouled and KCCA FC was awarded a free kick. Aliro took the resultant kick and Iguma nodded in the game’s first goal.
Aliro was later stretchered off injured and replaced with Musana Hassan with a minute to go before the interval.
After the restart, Mazengo Loro replaced Juma Balinya.
In the 52nd minute, Ssenyonjo doubled KCCA FC’s lead with some quick tap in after a melee in the box that initially saw Iguma attempt to score.
In the 65th minute, Mutanda rattled the woodwork with a bullet header and Magmbo cleared his lines.
Mazengo almost stretchered KCCA’s lead in the 72nd minute after he had left two markers for dead but Mukundane cleared.
This was KCCA FC’s third win of the season in three games and second clean sheet on the bounce.
The Mike Mutebi coached side is now on the top of the table with nine points.
Their next game will be against SC Villa on Tuesday 15th December, 2020 with sights on the fourth consecutive win.
