BUL FC continued their perfect start to the season as they picked up their second victory against Police at the Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, Wakiso.
BUL had picked up five victories from the past six games against the Cops and they continued their dominance in the fixture, as they picked up a 2-0 victory.
The cops started as the better side, dominating proceedings and could have gone ahead in the 7th minute only but Ben Ocen’s delivery left more to be desired.
In the 12th minute, BUL found the break through, after the Cops were caught in possession as they tried to build from the back. Deogratius Ojok capitalised to slot home into an empty net.
Police were not about to change their style as they continued to build from the back. They looked suspect at times but when they managed to beat the initial press, they created nervous moments at the other end.
But it was BUL who had the better opportunities with Police surviving narrowly. Goalkeeper David Mutebi twice came to the rescue denying Ojok.
Hamis Tibita had an evening to forget as he missed would be clear chances. His frustration was compounded further as he was brought if at the resumption of the second half much to the utter disgust of the forward who was reluctant to return to the bench.
Police’s main chance at goal came in the 34th minute. Yusuf Ssozi’s defence splitting pass found Samson Kigozi out wide. His cut back found Mubarak Nsubuga who set up Timothy Oyamo but the latter went for the shot instead of picking out an unmarked Ocen.
Ocen became the first player to be booked for a kick out on Godfrey Akol.
Police still maintained their dominance especially in possession in the second stanza but could not turn all the possession into goals as the visitors were happy to sit back.
Clearly Police were lacking the goal threat that Juma Balinya provided last season. Even the labored attempt of Johnson Odong after his introduction bared no fruit.
BUL got their second on the day against the run of play, as Walter Ochora rose highest in the 67th minute to nod home from just their third corner kick in the match.
The drenched pitch at the Kabaka Kyabaggu didn’t help matters as it played a huge role in foiling Police’s short and slick passing style.
Late on, Police threatened more and could have got a goal back at least, save for a goal line clearance from defender Musa Walangalira and a brilliant save from goal keeper Kimera from an audacious Ruben kimera effort.
There were no further changes to the scoreline as BUL held their mantle to collect their second consecutive victory this season and move level on points with KCCA and Vipers.
The defeat further compounds Police’s woes this season after they were docked points for failing to honour their opening day fixture against Onduparaka.
