SC Villa will win their first national league title in nearly 20 years if they beat URA at Wankulukuku this Saturday.

This after the 16-time record champions beat and relegated Blacks Power on Tuesday and fellow StarTimes Uganda Premier League challengers, Vipers SC and KCCA, both dropped points at BUL and Busoga United respectively.

Charles Bbaale scored Villa’s winner, his 12th goal of the season bringing him level with Allan Kayiwa of Express, for the Jogoos to open a two-point lead with a game to go.

Defending champions Vipers actually needed a Karim Watambala injury time penalty to rescue a point at BUL.

Sam Ssekamatte had given the hosts a 65th minute lead.

KCCA could only settle for a goalless draw at Busoga.

The two, Vipers and KCCA, are now on 50 points apiece, two behind Villa.

This means that even if Vipers and KCCA both won their final games at home to Busoga and Bright Stars respectively on Saturday, they would still need Villa to fail against URA for former duo to have a chance.

For Villa, it is straight forward. Beat URA and the 19-year league title jinx is broken.

Bbaale and Villa’s moment came on 47 minutes when the forward beat Blacks Power goalkeeper Tony Kyamera for what could yet be the season defining goal.

And for Blacks Power, it was the decisive blow and the Lira side joined Onduparaka as the two clubs to be relegated this season.

Left winger Umar Lutalo and striker Muna Kalule could have made the scoreline more impressive for Villa had they put away the glorious chances they got but the Jogoos will take this for now.

Elsewhere, URA thumped Gaddafi 4-0 to move one up to sixth on 39 points, while Arua Hill beat Soltilo Bright Stars 1-0 to return to fourth place on 41.

Joseph Ssemujju, Saidi Kyeyune, Ibrahim Dada and Bruno Junior Bunyaga scored for URA in the win over Gaddafi, while Isaac Ogwang got Arua Hill’s winner at Bright Stars.
