Simon Tshisungu Kankonde netted a second half beauty to hand KCCA FC a hard fought 2-1 victory against resilient Busoga United.

Laban Tibita had earlier scored a first half equaliser to cancel out a penalty from Julius Poloto which put KCCA in the lead.

The win sees KCCA bounce back to winning ways as they extend their unbeaten run to nine games and extend their top of the table lead to five points.

Poloto put KCCA in a deserved lead when he converted from the spot after goalkeeper Micheal Lutaaya brought down Shaban Muhammad in the 21st minute.

The Kasasiro boys dominated play but they failed to have command with the use of the ball in the final third as striker Shaban looked silent in the game.

In the 34th minute, KCCA FC were caught on the break as Moses Lugono beat defender Mustafa Mujuzi to set up Laban Tibita who curved the ball in the far post of goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan to level the scores.

KCCA FC reacted in the second half of the game as they introduced a triple substitution which saw Ashraf Mugume, Haruna Lukwago and Ssenoga Kagawa come in to replace Emmanuel Wasswa, Mato Rodgers and Julius Poloto.

In the 69th minute, Kankonde had his first shot on goal but it was too powerful and went above the crossbar.

The Congolese born was set up by Kagawa and then created space for himself to send in a thunderbolt shot which beat goalkeeper Micheal Lutaaya to the far post to restore KCCA lead in the 78th minute.

It all looked done as KCCA turned to defending their slender lead and it really paid off as the game ended in their favour to return to winning ways.

What Next – KCCA FC will return to action as they visit Bright Stars at Kavumba recreation playgrounds in Tuesday 20th December.

Busoga United will return to action as they face Vipers on Tuesday at FUFA technical centre in Njeru.
