A goalless affair at Namboole thrust Lweza into the danger zone with eight games left.
Lweza FC slipped into the Premier League relegation zone after their draw against Sadolin Paints FC, and BUL FC’s win over Bright Stars on Tuesday.
A goalless affair at Namboole thrust Lweza into the danger zone with eight games left to the end of the season.
But it’s very tight at the bottom half of the table and that means any victory for any of the sides at the periphery can cause a significant shift in the log.
Win the next game and Lweza could just see themselves spring out of the red zone – of course, depending on the results of their closest rivals.
Against Sadolin, they gained the advantage when the home side were reduced to ten men after skipper Ronald Lukungu’s altercation with an opponent in the second half saw him given marching orders.
The Kajjansi-based side had started well in the opening 15 minutes, searching long and wide for an opener but they were facing an opponent not willing to let them through.
The hosts had their moments too, with Fred Kyambadde coming close but his effort was a tad heavy and whistled over the bar.
Hassan Kikoyo came close to finding the back of the net as well.
Sadolin, who have just relocated their home ground to Namboole, had their players behind the ball after the interval and any meaningful progression was hurt by their deficit in numbers after Lukungu’s dismissal.
What they did was to frustrate the visitors and did well to prevent them from making their one-man advantage count.
Lweza will next be in action at the end of the month (March 31), with a home tie against Soana FC. Sadolin will return to action with a visit to Proline on April 1.
