Wakiso Giants’ 100% home record in the league was finally brought to a disappointing end as they were condemned to a 1-0 loss against BUL FC at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium, on Saturday evening.
Defender Ibrahim Kiyemba who has looked solid in recent times for the purple sharks could do nothing as the ball unluckily deflected off him into the back of the net, for the only goal of the game.
However, the game had Wakiso Giants written all over it as they took the game to BUL who were happy to allow them possession while they sat back and sucked all the pressure.
The hosts came close in the 10th minute of the game through veteran striker Geoffrey Sserunkuuma who is yet to score for the side. His superb header was well kept out by BUL goal keeper Abdu Kimera.
At the other end, the visitors had questions to ask, but Wakiso had goalie Derrick Emukule to thank after his fantastic save denied James Otim in the 28th minute to keep scores level.
The purple sharks were at it again in the 32nd minute, but Tom Masiko’s shot from outside the area missed by inches before Muwadda Kateregga’s header narrowly missed the target from the resultant corner.
In the added minutes of the first half, BUL FC broke the deadlock after defender Ibrahim Kiyemba unluckily connected into his own net, with BUL heading into half time in the driving seat.
The Kefa Kisala charges came back recharged for the second half. They created several goal scoring opportunities but they were not clinical enough to find the back of the net.
BUL who were the only team to pick up three points at the Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, after defeating Police FC on the opening day, held on for the win.
BUL FC move ahead of Wakiso giants to fourth on the log with nine points from four games, a point behind leaders SC Villa. Meanwhile Wakiso Giants who went into the game week top of the log now slip down to sixth with seven points from five games played.
