The FUFA Super  League side won the game 5 – 1 through goals from Denis Okot, Mathew Odong notched a brace with Yasser Mugerwa and Uganda Cranes star Dennis Iguma and Bwire admits they were the better side in the opening half and defended well in the second to hold on to their lead.

“They got their chances and used them, we got ours but could not bury them. We were a bit down in the first half and only woke up in the second half which by then was too late and they also defended well.

“We can only congratulate them and focus on the future it is all part of the game and we will try and correct the mistakes in the upcoming Big League matches, he told Red Pepper Online.
