Viane Ssekajugo continued to show that he is Wakiso Giants most influential player after another brilliant performance in a comeback win.

Playing their first game under new coach Deo Sserwadda who replaced Livingston Mbabazi, Wakiso were on course for a loss when David Ndihabwe scored for Maroons just after the hour-mark.

Ssekajugo came close to levelling matters but he was denied by the woodwork in the 84th minute.

The forward was tripped in the area for a penalty which Tom Masiko converted for an equaliser with just four minutes on time.

Ssekajugo handed Wakiso maximum points when he swept home the winner at the death after collecting from Karim Ndugwa.

Ssekajugo was however wheeled away in an ambulance to St Joseph Nansana after he was injured by Maroons goalkeeper Hannington Ssebwalunyo after the winner.

Lawrence Bukenya was also badly injured and needed an ambulance as well.

The win sends Wakiso, who remain in ninth place, to 28 points from 22 games while Maroons are 11th with 24 points after suffering their 10th loss.

Maroons remain without a win in three straight league games since beating BUL FC 2-0 on January 18 while the Purple Sharks have returned to winning ways after a 2-1 loss to Tooro United and two straight draws against BUL and Bright Stars.

Wakiso will be at home against Kyetume before visiting Busoga United while Maroons will seek to bounce back against Busoga before a trip to face Vipers.
