Big League: Wakiso Giants All But One Win Away From Promotion

Thursday, April 18
Nebbi Central 0-2 Wakiso Giants

Wakiso Giants have edged closer to top flight promotion on their first attempt after picking vital maximum points on the road off Nebbi Central.

Wakiso won 2-0 in a FUFA Big League encounter played at Nebbi Grounds returning to winning ways after going two games without winning, including a loss to UPDF that ended their unbeaten status in the Elgon group.

Ivan Kiweewa bundled home the opener off Karim Ndugwa’s assist just a quarter an hour played before the latter doubled the advantage in the 28th minute.

The victory sends the Purple Sharks to 37 points, six points above Kyetume FC who moved second with 31 points after beating UPDF FC 2-1 in Mukono.

Abdul Karim Kasule could have opened the scoresheet for the visitors but his effort hit the side net and Nduggwa’s header was kept out before he paved way for Godfrey Luutu.

It should be remembered that Kasule and Muwadda Kateregga scored a goal each as Wakiso beat Nebbi in the first round at Bugembe in Jinja.

With two games to go, against Entebbe FC (H) and Doves All Stars (A), the Giants may seal their promotion with a game to spare if they win their next game.
