BIG LEAGUE: Gadaffi FC complete double over Mbale Heroes to intesify UPL hopes 

Gaddafi Football Club moved to joint top of the Elgon Group table after beating rivals Mbale Heroes 2-0 at the Mbale Municipal Stadium.

Former Mbarara City offensive midfielder Marco Methodius Bassey and winger James Otim scored the two goals for the winning side.

Bassey scored in the second minute of the game while Otim put the icing on the cake in the closing stages of the encounter.

It was a double completed by Gadaffi over the Mbale outfit since the first leg encounter in Jinja ended 1-0 courtesy of Joel Madondo’s lone goal.

The win took Gaddafi to 16 points, level with Arua Hill who drew 1-1 with Blacks Power at the Emokori Stadium in Bukedea.

Alfred Leku scored for Arua Hill in the 65th minute but Michael Siwu equalized in the 85th minute.

Arua Hill however lead the table courtesy of a superior goal difference. 

The top club in each of the Elgon and Rwenzori Groups will automatically qualify for the 2021/22 Uganda Premier League season.

Two clubs from each of the groups will face off in a promotion play-off to determine the third club which joins the top tier league.
