Joseph Dhata Lujang continued with his fine form as he scored the lone goal to inspire NEC FC to a 1-0 win over Busoga United in the round of 16 encounter at Kakindu Stadium in Jinja.

Dhata struck a beauty that eventually proved to be a winning goal in the 40th minute of the game.

The South Sudan international capitalized on a error between Busoga United defenders Stephen Odong and Isaac Isinde to thump the ball into the back of the net.

This was Dhata’s fourth goal in the Stanbic Uganda Cup this season having scored a hat trick in the previous round against Acholi United at Lugogo.

Overall, Dhata has scored nine goals this season including five in the Uganda Premier League.

It should be noted, Dhata scored a brilliant brace when NEC FC beat Busoga United 3-2 in the league at Njeru early last month.

NEC became the 6th team to qualify for the Stanbic Uganda Cup quarterfinals this season.

Other already confirmed quarter finalists include Pajule Lions, Kitara FC, BUL FC, Police FC and KCCA FC.
