Paidha Black Angels SC have been relegated from the StarTimes Uganda Premier League this week after losing 2-0 to KCCA FC at the Bar Okoro stadium in Zombo.
The Black Angel’s one-year in the top tier of Ugandan football is over after their relegation to the Fufa Big League was confirmed with four games left to play.
Second half goals from Muzamiru Mutyaba and Patrick Kaddu were enough for the visitors to take all the maximum points in a closely contested tie.
The goals were also enough for KCCA to open a seven-point lead at the top; at least until second-placed Vipers face Mbarara City on Wednesday.
The result confirmed that even if Paidha won all their remaining four games, they would not overtake Maroons, who are a place above relegation zone.
This was Paidha’s 17th defeat in 26 matches, which kept them at the bottom of the 16-table log with just 12 points.
They have the worst goal difference in the league, having conceded 43 goals and scored only 17.
Three teams are to be relegated from the Uganda Premier League – one has been confirmed.
The other teams battling relegation are; SC Villa Jogoo, Maroons FC, Nyamityobora FC and Ndejje University.
