SUPL: Aliro scores brace to guide Wakiso Giants to victory against Gaddafi
Moses Aliro continued is brilliant start to life as a Wakiso Giants FC player as he scored a brace to guide the Purple Sharks to a 3-1 victory over Gaddafi FC on Saturday.
Aliro turned the Purple Sharks’ early dominance into a goal as he slotted in from close range after Sharif Kimbowa’s effort was parried by goalkeeper Ronald Mutebi on 12 minutes.
Frank Ssebufu had a chance to double the hosts lead but his fierce drive from just-outside the area, sailed over.
Aliro then fed off Simon Namwanja’s squared pass to side-foot in the second just past the half-hour mark.
Four minutes to the break, Kimbowa literally put the contest to bed, feeding off Aliro’s pass to make it 3-0 to the hosts.
Gaddafi them brought themselves back into the contest as Amos Kirya poked in fron close range to reduce the deficit.
With 10 minutes to play, debutant Sam Ssenyonjo added his name onto the score-sheet as he fired home off Aliro’s set-up.
Ssenyonjo who was signed from KCCA at the start of the season, was only 15 minutes into his debut after replacing Sharif Kimbowa in the second half.
Aliro who has now scored seven goals since joining Wakiso was named man-of-the-match for his brilliant exploits on the afternoon.
Victory takes Wakiso Giants into third spot with 27 points, three behind leaders Vipers SC.
