Mutyaba’s first goal was a well converted kick from the penalty mark after a foul on Derrick Nsibambi by defender Aimable Nsabimana

Midfielder Tom Masiko replaced captain Bernard Muwanga as the second half kicked off.

Hard working right back Nico Wakiro Wadada took over the captaincy when Muwanga was replaced.
