BUL FC set up a round of 32 match of the Stanbic Uganda cup with Kyambura Rasters, after easily seeing off Simba FC. Ibrahim Kazindula, Walter Ochora and Alex Kitata finished off the job on Wednesday to send BUL to next stage.

The Eastern Giants looked sharp and dominant right from the onset at Namulonge play ground in Gayaza and were the superior side throughout, full of energy from the back to the front as they ensured it would be them who progress to round of 32.

By the time they took the lead with the first of the three goals, they had already gone close about three times. Ibrahim Kazindula, making his first start of the season, made BUL’s dominance count when he slotted home in the 41st minute to fully put the Eastern Giants in the driving seat.

Before the hour mark they had made it 2-0 up. After scoring against Bright Stars in the league last time out, defender Walter Ochora was at the fore again by glancing in Jerome Kirya’s effort delivered right from the corner.

The game would see new signing Ibrahim Orit make his debut as he was part of the triple substitution in the 71st minute where he, Lawrence Tezikya and Alex Kitata replaced Gerald Ogweti, Jerome Kirya and Martin Aprem. Amos Kirya had replaced Joel Madondo at break time.

BUL then piled more pressure on the hosts and wrapped up the game in a spectacular style as Alex Kitata tucked in a rebound to make it three after Pascal Ngobi’s initial effort was saved.

Abbey Kikomeko’s men will now play Kyambura Rasters FC on Sunday 18th February 2024 at Kyambura play grounds in Rubirizi, 4pm.
