Four minutes later, Erisa Sekisambu teed up Mike Mutyaba who was found on the edge of the six-yard box and coolly slotted home the second.

After the restart, Anaku was withdrawn for Nigerian John Odumegwu as Mike Mutyaba also made way for Keziron Kizito.

Provider almost turned goalscorer when Sekisambu rattled the woodwork with a fierce shot that deflected above and out.

Defender Kato Samuel was then cautioned for a foul two minutes after the hour mark.
