Villa beat KCC in Kampala derby



SC Villa beat city rivals KCC 2-0 as they ended a two-match losing streak in the Bell Super League at Nakivubo on Saturday.

Moses Ndawula and Herman Wasswa second half goals were enough to ease pressure off coach Mike Mutebi, who has been on the receiving end of fans’ barbs lately.

The victory moves the Jogoos three places up to fifth on 37 points while KCC, who drew their last league game with URA, remain sixth on 35.

It was a much more action-packed match compared to the unremarkable goalless draw when the two last met in October as both sides created enough chances to make the scoreline more exciting.

Among the people with a poor game was referee David Oula, who waived play on when Villa’s Steven Bengo and Ndawula were each clearly bundled down in the visitors penalty box in the second half.

There only negative for Villa is the loss of right back Ayub Kisalita and centre back Dennis Okot to injury.

KCC’s Edson Kateregga also left the stadium on crutches after being hacked by Ndawula.

Ndawula opened the scoring on 53 minutes when he picked the ball from outside the 18-yard area to beat Godfrey Wakabu to his right far post for his eighth goal of the season.

Lively Bengo then beat two KCC defenders inside the area before cutting back for Wasswa to control and curl it in past Wakabu.
