For the first time this season, KCCA FC has suffered back to back losses in the league after a 3-0 loss to Express FC at Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo.
The champions went into the game on the back of a 2-0 loss to Vipers on Friday but couldn’t break down a resilient Express FC which nearly got in front twice in the first half with John Semazzi testing goalie Benjamin Ochan.
KCCA’s best chance in the opening 45 minutes fell to Herman Wasswa whose shot was parried by Ali Kiggundu in Express FC goal for corner.
After recess, Coach Abdallah Mubiru who had already one substitution withdrawing William Wadri for Baker Lukooya made an immediate change introducing attacking midfielder Yasin Mugume but it was Express that got in front when Semazzi’s low shot hit the post before settling into the bottom corner in the 59th minute.
The hosts got another opportunity but again Wasswa was denied by good goalkeeping from Kiggundu.
The visitors doubled their lead in the 80th minute thanks to Isaac Sserunkuma goal before sealing the day with a late Julius Ogwang.
Despite the loss, KCCA remain 3rd on the table with 50 points; six behind log leaders Vipers who have played a game less.
KCCA return to action on Sunday May 3 when they play Lweza in the second leg of the Uganda Cup semi-finals.
