Uganda Premier league
SC Villa 0-1 Busoga United
Mandela National Stadium
Moses Kiggundu’s own goal in the 76th minute was enough to give Busoga United a win against SC Villa at Mandela National Stadium on Tuesday.
Kiggundu failed to deal with Ivan Wani’s powerful cross, only to connect into his own net in what was a highly contested affair.
Busoga took full control of the first opening 20 minutes, with a couple of chances but were not very clinical in front of goal.
David Bagoole also had the space and all the time he needed but he shot over the bar.
SC Villa gained momentum in next minutes and saw their first clear shot on target from Nicholas Kabonge.
Kabonge got another chance, but his free header went inches wide shortly after Ambrose Kirya had also missed from close range.
Villa has lost three games in a row after previous defeats against KCCA and URA FC.
Villa will make a short trip to Kitende to play table leaders Viper SC while Busoga will be welcoming Mbarara City.
Busoga United move to 24 points, three behind Villa who remain on 27.
