The Eastern Giants eight game unbeaten run is over. Express ran 2-1 winners in our Uganda premier league encounter with them at Mutesa II stadium on Saturday.
They were set on their way six minutes after the hour when George Kasonko scored at the wrong end to put them in the lead. And Martin Kiiza doubled their advantage with a calm finish on 39 minutes for they to move into the break with a two goal cushion.
Simon Peter Oketch came off the bench to pull one back for BUL FC with eighteen minutes left to play but a complete comeback was not to happen as the hosts held on to win the game.
Before the Red eagles found their footing, Ibrahim Nsimbe almost put BUL in front midway the first half when he pulled a shot but agonisingly saw his effort slightly fly wide.
Another chance of the Eastern Giants fell to Karim Ndugwa with just nine minutes into the second period however Otim was quick to tame his header.
The Red eagles survived some nervy moments deep in the game but it was just not our day.
This defeat has left the Eastern Giants in the 5th place on 46 points after 28 games.
