A fine performance at home handed KCCA FC three points at home and a position back on top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table.

Moses Waiswa’s first-half penalty and two second-half goals from substitutes Tshisungu Kankonde and Charles Lwanga were enough to hand KCCA FC the three points.

A minute after kick-off, Okello was brought down in the box by Derrick Ngoobi, and referee Sabila pointed to the penalty spot.
