Proline outclassed Mbarara City FC in a 3–0 win at the Startimes stadium Lugogo in day five fixture of the Uganda Premier League.
Bayo Fahad and Sula Matovu’s first half goals gave the home side a two nil lead with Bayo’s goal coming at the 3rd minutes as Matovu’s at the 22rd minutes.
Whereas Mandela sealed the deal in the second half from Bayo’s cross in the second half. Sam Kintu had a chance to make it four for Mujib Kasule’s boys if not denied by the wood work.
On the other side Mbarara City though looked undetermined in the game as attempts to score by them were not convincing.
Viali Bainomugisha attributes the defeat to lack of luck for the early goal conceded, unfamiliarity with the artificial turf and inexperience.
“We were a bit unlucky to concede a very early goal but the boys were fatigued due to the late travels. The playing surface was alien to most of my players, we did not get ample time for them to practice on it and we hope next time they won’t be affected by the same. Inexperience was another factor for our humbling loss since most of my boys a new to league situations, this is a tough league and they too need to toughen up” Said Bainomugisha
Win for Proline takes the Wandegeya club to 4th on the table with seven points after five games, two wins, two defeats and one draw.
The western Uganda side drops to 12th with five points on the table after their second successive defeat, one win, and two draws.
This defeat is third consecutive Mbarara City has suffered in the hands of Proline FC. In their first meeting in the lower tier the Big League, Mbarara City lost by 5–0 and 2–1 in a sequence.
Nevertheless Bainomugisha says counselling for his boys will rejuvenate their energy for the next fixtures.
Proline will visit Bugembe Stadium to battle it out with Kirinya Jinja SS in their next fixture on 17th October as Mbarara City FC entertains Police FC at Kakyeka Stadium on 20th October 2017.
