High-flying forward Sixtus Sabilo had scored the first goal in the 24th minute which was his fifth goal of the season.

The league’s leading scorer Reliants Lusajo pulled one back for the losing side in the 62nd minute but his 6th goal of the season only turned out to be a mere consolation.

Hassan’s fellow countryman and teammate Joseph Ssemujju also came off the bench in the second half of the game.

This was the third consecutive win for Abdallah Mubiru’s men and took them to the 4th place on the table having garnered 15 points from nine games played.
