Controversial Andrew Mukasa made an anonymous return to the soccer fold but counterpart Hassan Mubiru etched his name closer to the golden boot with a brace in Express’ lackluster 3-1 victory over Maji yesterday.
The Nile Special Super League victory was anything but a classic with the 1996 champions saving their best for last courtesy of two goals in the last seven minutes from internationals Mubiru and Francis Gonzaga.
Maji drew first blood through a Vialli Bainomugisha goal in the 23 rd minute, and the deficit seemed to ignite the hosts into action with the attacking quartet of Mubiru, Toto Songe, Mukasa and James Odoch going close.
The attack paid dividends — a penalty in the 34 th minute — after Augustine Barigye fouled Songe in the box. Mubiru clinically put away his 18th of the season.
Mukasa was predictably a forlorn figure till Express’ stand-in coach Richard Kirumira withdrew him midway in the second half for Fred Okello.
In Mbale, Sam Ssimbwa was treated to a hostile reception but still managed to start his Lugogo tenure on a winning note.
Badru Kiyega’s stoppage time goal — a rebound from Francis Onyango’s controversial free kick — earned KCC three contentious points.
Meanwhile, league action resumes today with leaders SC Villa hoping to stretch their seven point lead.

Namboole stadium
Striker Alex Isabirye, who joined giants SC Villa early this season, will be the man to watch when Villa host URA Lyantonde.
“With the absence of Maurice Sunguti and Said Abed, Isabirye will be one of the names I will rely on for better results from the striking line,” Villa coach Micho Sredojevich said yesterday.

Kanyike stadium
Languishing in the relegation zone, coach Leo Adra will rely on the duo of Michael Juuko and Kule Balanya to ensure that SCOUL downs visiting Simba.
