POLICE striker Rogers Kyeyune scored six goals in the NSSL encounter against Akol to equal a national record yesterday. Express striker Hassan Mubiru also scored six past Black Rhino in 2001.
Kyeyune earned himself sh.3m from Property Masters for his feat at Namboole. The Real estate dealers recently promised to reward each goal scorer with sh50,000 and Kyeyune received his share immediately after the exciting encounter.
Meanwhile, KCC coach Abbey Nasur will be going in for a great goal average when his side takes on wounded Akol at Nakivubo. The club, currently perched fourth on the league table, will be looking to overtake Masaka LC.
Meanwhile, Jan Fray believes the championship race in the Nile Special Super League is still open but concedes that the advantage is with Villa.
The Express coach however thinks victory over SC Villa at Wankulukuku tomorrow could put pressure on the champions.
â€œEverything is possible in football. True, Villa leads us by 10 points but itâ€™s possible to catch them. Itâ€™s not yet out of our reach,â€ said the confident Dane.
â€œIf we can beat them, we will come into the picture and thatâ€™s possible. They can lose.â€
Red Eagles strongman, Kassim Buyondo has meanwhile encouraged soccer-lovers to turn up for the Express-Villa encounter feeling secure in the knowledge that there will be no violence.
Buyondo, who infamously stormed Wankulukuku in 1997 to protest a disallowed Express goal against Villa, revealed that he had made mistakes in the past but all had been rectified for the good of soccer.
Kyeyune equals record
