Misagga leads team cheers recently

The Abanyakale remained in the relegation zone with 12 points, two below safety. Pilsner Man of the match Ibrahim Dada scored a hat trick –the second of the season whilst Damien Nakalema made a scoring debut after joining the Asaph Mwebaze’s side from Water in the current transfer window. Arafat Galiwango scored Police’s consolation as the Abdullah Mubiru’s side slipped a place to 9th. Before the game, Nyamityobora president Eng. Ben Misagga had declared ‘a war’ to see the Western side survive relegation. The side also already boosted their squad with eight new additions and will make two other signings before closure of the current transfer period, according to Misagga. Tuesday’s win was Nyamityobora’s third of the campaign and was a revenge against 2-0 home defeat in the reverse fixture when they still hosted at Betway Muteesa II stadium, Wankulukuku.

Umony replaced the former in the second stanza but could do little to save the Betway-sponsored side from their 5th loss of the campaign, and this time, at the hands of former coach Wasswa Bbosa. The win moved Bbosa’s side four places to 6th with 23 points from 16 games whilst the Red Eagles moved to a place down to 8th with 21 points from as many games. […]
