Uganda Premier League
Police 0-2 Onduparaka

Onduparaka put up a resuscitated performance to recover from the obliteration they suffered against KCCA FC over the weekend.

The caterpillars defeated Police 2-0 in the Uganda Premier League game played at Phillip Omondi on Tuesday.

A goal in either half from Living Kabon and diminutive playmaker Gadaffi Gadinho condemned Abdallah Mubiru to his first loss as Police FC coach since joining the side in January.

The game initially scheduled to take place at Nakivubo stadium was shifted to Phillip Omondi stadium following closure of the former stadium.

Mubiru’s perfect start at Police that had seen him win 3 league games and 5 in total was brought to halt falling 2-0 to Onduparaka.

Livingston Mbabazi made several changes to the side that lost to KCCA FC with skipper Mohammad Shaban leading the line after returning from suspension.

Goalkeeper Richard Anyama also returned to the starting lineup after recovering from a finger injury and replaced Geoffrey Lowo while Iddi Babu made his debut.

Kabon Living gave the visitors the lead off a quick counter attack when Ceasar Okhuti laid him up on the far end to fire home in the 19th minute.

Despite several attempts to level matters, cure Police who were blunt and wasteful failed to break down a resilient Onduparaka.

Gadaffi Gadinho doubled the lead with eight minutes to the end of the game off yet another quick counter attack slotting home on the rebound after he had failed to put the ball past Yasin Mugabi on the initial attempt.

The result means Onduparaka remain third on the table with 32 points while Police remain 9th on 23 points.
