Livingstone Mbabazi earned his first win at Mbarara City with a massive 3-1 result over Express FC on Sunday at Kavumba Recreational ground.
The Mbarara side delayed to start their season after the FUFA Club Licensing denied them a license because their Kakyeka stadium was not up to standard.
They later appealed the decision to demote them to lower division after agreeing to hosts their games at Kavumba.
They opened their season with a 1-0 defeat to Ndejje University last Tuesday but recovered on Sunday with the win.
Newly-signed forward karim Ndugwa put the hosts ahead just twelve minutes into the game after picking a pass around the box, beat the Red Eagles defence before slotting in.
Mubarak Nsubuga replied the strike after six minutes when he rose high to head in Tony odur’s corner kick.
Odur had another chance to double the lead two minutes later but his effort kept rising and flew over the bar. He later converted another chance but the linesman had already flagged him off.
Youngster Ivan Eyamu restored the lead for the Mbabazi-coached side with a rebound in the 39th after Express backline failed to clear away a danger from a corner kick.
Hillary Mukundane put the lead beyond Express FC in the 52nd minute through a well-lobbed header over Tony Kyamera in Express goal.
The win is the biggest for Mbarara City since earning their promotion to the topflight league.
The Red Eagles travel to Lugogo to face Police on Tuesday 16th October as Mbarara City host Maroons four days later.
