Mutyaba scores a late winner as KCCA sees off Tusker.

MATCH RESULT

KCCA 3 Tusker 2


Muzamiru Mutyaba scored the winner in injury time as KCCA FC beat visiting Kenyan side Tusker 3-2 in an international friendly match at Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.

Mutyaba late strike ensured that Uganda's reigning premier league champions brush aside the Kenyan champions coached by Ugandan Paul Nkata.

Both sides used the game to prepare themselves for the upcoming CAF Champions League that starts next year in February.

KCCA had taken the lead through Derrick Nsibambi's double before Anthony Ndolo and Stephen Owusu leveled matters for the visitors.

 

And when it seemed like the spoils would be shared, Mutyaba struck late on to send the home crowd into celebration.

Besides the coach, Tusker has a crop of Ugandan players including Shafik  Batambuze, Martin Kiiza and Hashim Sempala.

Ronald Musana, now playing for KCCA, also faced his former club.

This was the second time Tusker played a Ugandan side this year after being hosted by Vipers.

Meanwhile, KCCA, currently at the top of the pile, will be back in league action next week when the Azam Premier League resumes.
