Villa, Simba in stalemate

Alex Witaba struck late to deny SC Villa all three points as Simba rallied to draw 1-1 in a Uganda Premier League (UPL) match played at the Ssaza Grounds in Mityana on Friday.

Karim Ndugwa had given the hosts a half time lead when he scored his eight goal of the campaign to take over the goal-scoring charts.

In leaking late on, coach Sam Ssimbwa’s men squandered the opportunity to keep pace with leaders Vipers, who beat SC Victoria University 1-0 to extend their lead at the summit by five points.

Villa move to 23 points but remain third behind KCC, who were not in action on the day, on 24 and Vipers on 29.

This was only the second time Villa were dropping points at home ground, the first a 1-0 defeat to KCC recently.

It was Simba’s second successive draw having played a goalless stalemate with SCVU coming into this tie. The army side drop one place to 11th with 12 points after 1 games.
