Uganda pipped Taifa stars 1#0 to secure three important points away in Dar-es-Salaam on Tuesday night.
Substitute Rogers Mato was the hero as he scored a later winner in added minutes at Benjamin Mkapa stadium.
A game dominated by controversy after the play in first half was halted due to the lights system at the stadium.
It resumed after around 25 minutes, but the game was allowed to go forward by the centre referee lbrahim Kalilou.
The tier not obsessed with a lot of opportunities from sides looked to end in a stalemate.
Mato won it in added time to break the hears of the thousands of home fans in attendance.
The victory comes as a sweet revenge to Uganda after losing in Egypt last week courtesy of Msavu strike.
With pressure mounting on the Uganda tactician Micho Sredojevic ,this brings relief to his camp and a chance wide open to seek qualification.
Uganda now stands on 4 points tied with Tanzania who sit second in group F.
Algeria already secured qualification after last night’s 1#0 victory against Niger who have collected two points so far.
