A Umar Kasumba second half strike was enough to seal a hard fought victory for the Jogoos who remain unbeaten at their new Masaka home.

The game, website at Masaka Recreation Grounds, was a fight for second spot as the visitors were just a 3 points behind second placed hosts.

The visitors, who started with a 3-man attack of  Kemba, Tony Odur and Ssekisambu, couldn’t find the cutting edge they longed for and their long trip to Masaka yielded nothing.

SC Villa’s two wins on the trot after some inconsistent form was enough to seal second spot with 55 points as Vipers remain third with 49 points.

Miguel Duarte Da Costa’s Vipers went into the Masaka trip on the back of a joyous 4-1 victory over Onduparaka and had hoped to beat Villa to second place in the league and stand a chance of continental football depending on Caf rules.

But with Mike Mutebi’s KCCA already eyeing a double, both league and cup, and if it so happens that KCCA goes on to win the Uganda Cup, the runners up in the league may take the Caf Confederations Cup place.
