In Summary
  • Elsewhere, Abraham Ndugwa capped a fine week in which he was summoned to the Cranes senior squad with the equalizer as Masavu salvaged a 1-1 draw with visiting Bright Stars in Bugonga, Entebbe.
  • The result, however, was not enough to get them out of the relegation zone despite UPDF losing 3-0 to Krinya Jinja who moved temporarily fourth.

FRIDAY RESULTS - AUPL
Kirinya Jinja 3-0 UPDF
Masavu 1-1 Bright Stars
Proline 0-1 BUL

Arun of seven games without a win should ordinarily raise alarm for any team regardless of the competition.

But after seeing his Proline side slump to second from bottom in the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) following a 1-0 loss to Bul at Lugogo on Friday evening, coach Mujib Kasule projected a sensor of calm in face of the current dire situation.

“We are concerned about the position but are not worried about relegation, said Kasule.
“We just need to focus and continue working hard. We have 10 games left and its too early to worry about relegation. We created scoring chances but didn’t take them and we got hit by a sucker punch at the end.”

The result once again exposed Proline’s deficiencies infront of goal with Daniel Isiagi and Allan Egaku missing one-on-one opportunities before Hamisi Tibita volleyed in the winner eight minutes from time.

“We are starting to gel. It took time because football is a process. The players are getting to know each other more and results are now starting to come,” Bul coach Kefa Kisala observed.

The result moved his side to 25 points and ninth on the log, seven points more than Proline.
