Saturday result

SC Villa 1-0 Vipers SC

SC Villa recovered from last Sunday’s 4-1 thrashing at the hands of KCCA by beating StarTimes Uganda Premier League defending champions and title rivals, Vipers SC, 1-0 on Saturday.

Marksman Charles Bbaale, who also scored Villa’s only goal in the defeat to KCCA, grabbed the winner at Mutesa II Stadium Wankulukuku to hand the Jogoos all three points.

The win ensures coach Jackson Magera’s men stay top of the table on 46 points, two and seven ahead of KCCA and Vipers respectively. 

At 24 matches, Villa have played two and three more times than KCCA and Vipers in a 28-game season.

Villa’s 15th win of the season, in which Ivan Sserubiri, Umar Lutalo and Man of the Match Travis Mutyaba impressed, was secured on 35 minutes when Bbaale scored his 10th goal of the season. Only Express’ Allan Kayiwa has scored more at 11.
