BUL FC slipped to a 1-0 defeat on the road against Uganda Premier League table leaders Vipers SC.
A late goal from Yunus Ssentamu in the second half was enough for the Venoms to secure their victory at St. Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday.
The result means that BUL suffered their sixth defeat in the league and three in a row on the road.
The Jinja City soccer giants put in a spirited display to battle through rain for the entire opening half and the boys produced the best football the soccer fans will ever see for the rest of the season.
Definitely, BUL had the better of the exchanges, but, despite the total dominance though, it wasn’t translated into goals as the lads left their scoring boots at home and Vipers would have thanked their keeper for a couple of good saves too to keep the game level at halftime.
Although the Venoms would argue that they had most of the ball in the second half when the Edible Oil Manufacturers were battling coldness, the effort and dedication displayed by every player in a white shirt simply must be commended. The back three were defending like Trojans and, when we got our running game going, they simply had no answers for us
The amount of work and desire displayed in such adverse weather conditions was sometimes hard to believe considering the lack of enough time between games
It wasn’t to be our day in the end however as Yunus Ssentamu’s header drilled the ball into the net with four minutes left on the clock. But that aside, there were hips of positives to take for BUL FC going forward and, with the return of some key players from injuries, the lads will surely get back to winning ways in no time.
The team is now in 13th position on the sixteen team log with 7 points from 9 games. Their next outing will be against the winless and UPL rookies – MYDA FC on Friday February 26 at Kyabazinga Stadium – Bugembe in Jinja City
