Tuesday’s win at Kakindu Stadium will inject an air of confidence and belief into the club.

Robert Achema came off the bench to score two vital goals against Bright Stars to help BUL FC climb out of the relegation zone.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder was a second half substitute and his introduction saved the home side.

Jinja-based BUL are still in the thick of the relegation battle and if they are to survive the drop, they will have to win most of their eight remaining games of the campaign.

Tuesday’s win at Kakindu Stadium will inject an air of confidence and belief into a club that had courted the relegation zone for many a day.

Achema, who also scored the winner against Police FC, was brought on for injured striker Villa Orum Chan early after the interval.

And the impact was instant. He slotted home from the spot after the hosts were awarded a penalty seven minutes after restart.

His movement on the ball alongside David Bagole, Yudah Mugalu and Titus Lubega proved too much for the Bright Stars defensive back line.

Bagole’s industry in the box late on led to BUL’s second when Achema had to only tap home two minutes to time.

BUL won two games in a row for the first time this season.

''For the second time Achema’s substitution status is paying off for the team as he looks a deadly weapon as a substitute but we need not be carried away by the result,” said BUL’s stand-in coach Peter Onen .

“We just need to stay focused and win more matches.”

Head coach Frank 'Video' Anyau was still relegated to the stands for the fourth game in a row.
