Wandyaka strikes late as BUL edge Villa

Friday result 

BUL 1-0 SC Villa

Richard Wandyaka claimed both the winning goal and Pilsner Man of the Match accolade as BUL upstaged SC Villa to consolidate their table leadership on Friday.

The 1-0 victory at the Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru was BUL’s third in four matches as the Jinja side continued their solid start to the 2022/23 StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) season.

Coach Alex Isabirye’s BUL now have 10 points, establishing three between them and Villa in second both having played the same number of games.

Wandyaka’s goal, coming two minutes to full time, is the striker’s fourth in as many games, and has him leading the top scorers chart.

This was Villa’s first defeat, but for a team that inspired so little confidence before the start of the season, they will be happy with their effort so far.

The 16-time Ugandan champions have won two of their four games, including a 2-0 victory over rivals Express.

Villa have scored four goals along the way, with the one against BUL the first they were conceding.
