Ambrose Kirya’s second half strike was all SC Villa needed as they upstaged Express FC at Wankulukuku on Friday in the Uganda Premier League.
Kirya headed home Derrick Ndahiro’s cross from the left wing in the 72nd minute as the visitors broke the dealock.
SC Villa had come close on several attempts with Express FC clearing for safety on several occasions.
In the 63rd minute, Express’ Dissan Galiwango almost brought the home side to life when he dribbled two en route to the area but his blind pass extinguished hope.
Express FC are now 13th with four points out of 5 games. SC Villa are now top of the table with 10 points from five games.
