Kyetume pile more misery on struggling Proline #Uganda

Uganda Premier
League

  • Kyetume FC 1-0 Proline FC
  • Mandela National Stadium

Proline
Football Club is far from finding a solution for their recent poor run in the
league after a 1-0 loss to fellow new league comers Kyetume FC on Tuesday at
Mandela National stadium ensured they lost their fourth successive league game.

Veteran striker Robert Ssentongo scored the lone goal of the game in the second stanza a result that moved Kyetume FC to seventh place on the log with ten points but left Proline FC bottom with no point.

It should
be noted that Proline FC have won two games this season (against Express FC and
Onduparaka FC) but because they were docked six points for failure to honour
the game against SC Villa, the Lugogo based outfit is left with no pint.

A poor display
from Matia Lule’s charges saw them fail to find a breakthrough against a
resilient Kyetume FC side.

Despite starting
with two strikers in Edrisa Lubega alia Torres and Hamis ‘Diego’ Kizza, Proline
FC looked blunt going forward and failed to show command in terms of possession
like they always do.

Even when
they stepped up their efforts in the closing stages of the game, the home side
remained composed to keep them at bay.

Goalkeeper
Joel Mutakwubwa made two game defining saves in the closing stages of the game
to deny Lubega and substitute Noordin Bunjjo and he was eventually named man of
the match.

The goal
came in the 52nd minute when Sharif Ssaka did the donkey work on the
left wing to lay up Ssentongo who ran between two Proline defenders to poke
home.

Kyetume, a blend of experience and flesh blood

George ‘Best
Nsimbe has been able to find a mixture of experienced and young players and
this seems to have given him a relatively good start. For a team that was
tipped by many to be a favourite for relegation, 13 points in 8 games would not
be a bad return.

Skipper
Vincent Kayizzi always offers width given his ability to take on defenders and
offer at least two good crosses per game. He could have lost the pace but not
the brain to execute

Upfront,
three-time league top scorer Robert Ssentongo still has enough gas in the tank
to take on defenders and this was evident against Proline FC.

He has
struggled since the start of the season but came out of the blocks against
Proline FC keeping Musitafa Mujjuzi and Bernard Muwanga on tenterhooks.

And when
the duo slept on job, he utilised the opportunity to dash and tap home the all-important
goal.

Isaac
Kirabira formerly at SC Villa and KCCA FC offers calmness in the midfield and
ignites attacks for Kyeume FC.

The seemingly
fresh blood in towering defender Bernard Tahomera, Cephas Kambungu, Noel
Nasasira, Deo Isejja and Sharif Ssaka also play a good role.
