Uganda have beaten Guinea Bissau 2-0 in Kampala on Saturday to edge closer to qualifying for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations finals. A goal in each half was enough to ensure the Cranes will stay top of Group J with two matches remaining.

Godfrey Walusimbi was on target with the opener and then Egypt-based striker Geoffrey Massa wrapped up the win after the break.

Bottom of the table Angola host Kenya on Sunday in the other Group J game.

Uganda have 10 points from their four games so far and even if Kenya win tomorrow they will still be three points behind.

Next up for the Cranes, coached by Scotsman Bobby Williamson, is a trip to Angola before a final match at home against neighbours and bitter rivals Kenya.

Guinea Bissau have three points and stay ahead of Angola on goal difference.
