Victor 0 Kinyara 1
Express 2 Kâ€™la United 0
SC Villa v Maji
Masaka v URA FC
KCC FC v KB Lions
SAM Kabuka and Hassan Mubiru struck after the break as Express FC continued their pursuit of the league title yesterday.
Substitute Kabuka sealed Kampala Unitedâ€™s fate in the 78th minute after Mubiruâ€™s 69th minute opener for a 2-0 victory at Wankulukuku stadium.
At Nakivubo stadium, Ibrahim Jingoâ€™s first half effort proved decisive as Kinyara piped Victor FC 1-0 at Nakivubo stadium.
In todayâ€™s encounter, coach Asuman lubowa knows well that it is of no value having a team full of talent if you can not make them play together effectively.
In that sense Lubowaâ€™s chief assignment after being appointed head coach at Villa Park is to turn a promising Villa squad of individuals into a team of winners.
And that starts against Maji at Namboole today as the Jogoos attempt to place their CECAFA misery behind them.
The former Police tactician is expected to assemble a side that will revive the clubâ€™s faltering league crusade, a task he strongly believes will be realised on the evidence of the talent gathered at the club.
He has spoken of his desire to pit his wits against his critics and Villaâ€™s next decisive 14 games will give him the chance to prove.
â€œThe good thing is I do not have any injuries in the team so the challenge is not there,â€ Lubowa said yesterday.
In the other game, URA FC could fuel the heat on Express with three points away to Masaka LC.
A trip to the recreation grounds at this stage could prove an awful adventure, as Masaka illustrated in their 4-0 first half thumping of KB Lions last weekend.
KCC FC will predictably maintain their 15-match unbeaten run in their home game to Lions.
Geoffrey Sserunkuuma, 180 minutes without a goal, was the star-man when the two sides met in the first round, netting four as they demolished the league debutantes 7-0 at Wankulukuku.
