StarTimes Uganda Premier League:

KCCA 0-0 Mbarara City

Express FC 2-0 Tooro United FC

Mbarara City’ shot stopper Ali Kimera was the man of the match as KCCA missed out on  leapfrogging Vipers to the top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

Kimera made several saves as KCCA kept on piling pressure on Mbarara’s defence, backed by their powerful home crowd.

“Mbarara City is turning into one of our bogey sides but Igive them credit because they managed to contain my boys,” KCCA tactician Mike Mutebi said.

Mbarara City kept making threatening counter attacks at KCCA but Paul Mucureezi, the former KCCA striker and Karim Ndugwa were not clinical In front of goal.

Hassan Jurua, the KCCA young defender, was red carded in the 90th minute for fouling Mucureezi as he was getting through on goal.

KCCA now has 11 points from five games this season. Jude Ssemugabi who joined Mbarara City, and was the top scorer in the masaza competition, was left on Mbarara City  bench by coach Livingstone Mbabazi. The League returns on Friday and Saturday with Mbarara City taking on Villa at Kavumba.
