Uganda premier league
Police 1-4 Nyamityobora
Tooro United 1-0 Express
Nyamityobora FC improved their survival hopes with a stunning away win against Police at Lugogo on Tuesday despite failure to climb off the bottom three of the Uganda premier league.
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.
