*KCCA 4-0 Onduparaka
*Tooro 1-2 BUL
BUL FC fought back to beat hosts Tooro United on match-day nine of the StarTimes UPL at St Paul Seminary ground in Fort Portal.
Yafeesi Mubiru put the hosts in an early lead in the sixth minute but could later fluff a penalty that would have been an equaliser late in the game – His penalty kick rattled the post.
Musa Esenu equalised matters in the second half in the 63rd minute before Robert Mukongotya’s late strike in the 81st minute sealed a laboured win.
“It was successful game if we are to go with our planning but it wasn’t a simple game. The hard work of the boys and their team spirit helped us accumulate all the three points,” BUL coach Peter Onen commented after the victory.
The win, sixth from eight games, extends BUL’s lead atop to 19 points, four above second placed SC Villa who will face Maroons at Luzira on Saturday.
BUL who had beaten defending champions KCCA FC 3-0 in their previous game, have now gone five games without a loss. They have only dropped points twice – a 3-0 loss against Jinja rivals Busoga and a 1-1 draw against URA at Namboole.
The loss leaves Tooro with 10 points – This is the second straight loss for the Wasswa Bbosa coached side in Fort Portal after a 2-0 defeat against Kyetume.
Tooro will visit Onduparaka FC while BUL are at home against Bright Stars on match-day 10.
