Proline secured a narrow victory on Tuesday as they beat Bright Stars 2-1 at the StarTimes stadium, Lugogo to record their third victory of the campaign.
The hosts were without victory since beating Express 2-1 at the start of October, losing four in that period, but held on to edge their fellow strugglers.
Edrisa Lubega handed his side the lead in the 33rd minute, but Bright Stars who have triumphed just once this term were quick to respond as Augustine Kacancu restored parity from the penalty spot two minutes later making sure that they went for the break on level terms.
The advantage was however, restored a couple of minutes into the second half through Hakim Kiwanuka, and Proline held on to secure the all important points. Kiwanuka was named Man of the Match for his display and most importantly, for his winning goal.
It was a hot tempered affair as four players entered the referee’s book. Bright Star’s Andrew Kaggwa, Joseph Janjali and Kacancu received the bookings, while Proline saw Bright Anukani a returnee to the squad from the national team cautioned.
The result has no effect on the table, but it is one that might just set the tone for Proline who’ve spent much of the round rooted to the bottom of the table. They stay bottom with four points, and Bright Stars remain 14th with ten points.
In other day’s results, Steven Bengo’s Wakiso Giants comfortably beat fellow league debutants Kyetume 3-0 to register back to back victories while table leaders Vipers maintained their unbeaten run with a 1-0 win over URA.
