Bright Stars extended their impressive run after a hard fought 1-0 away win against Busoga United in a league game played at Kakindu Stadium in Lugogo.
Ibrahim Kasinde scored from outside the box, hitting it with power with his left foot in the 55th minute for the game’s only goal.
Busoga United had a glorious chance to level matters when they were handed a penalty after a handball in the 85th minute.
But substitute Dickson Niwamanya sent his kick onto the crossbar to leave the fans disappointed.
It’s the fourth straight win for Bright Stars who beat Onduparaka, Express and BUL previously.
“It’s a very nice win, it’s now four in a row but today was a very difficult one, we had to dig in very deep because our opponent put in really a good show,” said Bright Stars coach Asaph Mwebaze.
“Fortunately the boys stood up and we are going home with all the three points.”
Bright Stars will not be in action in Match-week 12 but will return on the pitch on December 13 against Wakiso Giants.
Mwebaze added: “We will be going into the game against Wakiso Giants with a lot of confidence and being at home hopefully we can put up another win, five in five wouldn’t be so bad.”
The Stars have not conceded a goal in the last three games and Mwebaze has credited his defensive department.
“Our backline has been one of our best department this season, because if you remember we started with five straight draws and most of them were spirited fights and I am very proud of the work they have put in.”
The victory sends Bright Stars to fifth with 17 points after 11 games.
Busoga United who have lost three in a row and visit leaders Wakiso Giants on Friday, sit 14th with just three points.
