Express, Gaddafi FC Match Suspended After Heavy Downpour

The Uganda Premier League game between Express FC and Gaddafi FC has been rescheduled for tomorrow after floods covered Mutesa II stadium in Wankulukuku.  

The two teams had begun warming up for the contest, shortly before the afternoon rains started, delaying the start time. Although the rains eventually stopped, the stadium in Wankulukuku was already flooded and no activity could take place.

Speaking to URN, Bernard Bainamani, the CEO of Uganda Premier League said that the game will now be played on Wednesday to allow the players time to participate in national engagements, among them CHAN and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Meanwhile, URA FC trounced Busoga United 4-0 in the early kickoff played at Kakindu Stadium in Jinja. Kabon Living scored two goals, and strikers Derrick Nsibambi and George Senkaaba each added one to help URA earn their first victory of the season. 

URA previously lost to Express and registered two draws against Onduparaka and BUL FC. In the same vein, Busoga United has suffered its third defeat in four games, they previously fell to the Maroons and the UPDF, but also defeated Blacks Power. BUL FC is leading the table with seven points from three games.
