KCCA tuned up for Saturday’s highly billed clash against table leaders Vipers with a dominant first half display that set the tone for 3-1 humbling of Express at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in Wakiso yesterday.
Youngster Sadat Anaku gave KCCA a 13th minute lead, punishing slack defending from Express’ central defensive pairing of Martin Kizza and David Kakeeto with a low hard drive from just inside the area.
The goal came after Express captain Disan Galiwango had failed to beat Jamal Malyamungu in KCCA’s goal in a one on one situation created in the opening minute.
KCCA then continued to dominate proceedings and making a mockery of what was once one of the fiercest domestic rivalries by adding the second goal five minutes later.
The impressive Erisa Ssekisambu who had the beating of Andrew Kiwanuka particularly in the first half, crossed for the unmarked Mike Mutyaba to connect home emphatically. Only KCCA slowing down the temple stopped them from adding the third goal although it did come in the 72nd minute when Muhamad Yiga turned into his own net.
Frank Kalanda then gave the scoreline a respectable look converting from the spot after Filbert Ochan brought down Frank Ssenyondo on 75 minutes.
The result left Express in 11th position on 14 points while moved KCCA into fifth position with 19 points, 14 behind leaders Vipers.
Bul and SC Villa are second and third respectively after playing out a one-all draw in Bombo in a game in which David Owori’s third goal of the season cancelled out Richard Wandyaka’s 75th minute opener.
The pair remain five and nine points behind Vipers respectively.
At Lugogo, Ben Ochen scored his seventh goal of the season and Adrew Kigozi scored a brace in Police’s 4-0 rout of crumbling Tooro United who have three of their administrators resign over the past three weeks.
