Match Report | KCCA FC tame Ankole Lions

Denis Iguma’s first half header and Samuel Ssenyonjo’s strike were all the 13 time Uganda Premier League Champions needed to grab the three points against a bogey Mbarara City side.

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 to deny him in the 9th minute.

Eight minutes later, Aliro came tormenting again but this time around Mukundane cleared his lines.
