Defending champions Vipers stumble again


StarTimes Uganda Premier League leaders, Kitara, did not kick a ball on Friday but were the day’s biggest winners as KCCA and 10-man SC Villa stopped Vipers SC and BUL respectively.

A late Mustafa Kizza penalty completed KCCA’s double over Vipers with a 1-0 victory at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende while David Owori’s first half goal was enough for Villa, who had Gavin Kizito sent off after half time, to pip BUL by the same scoreline in Njeru.

KCCA’s ninth win in 20 matches moved the Kasasiro Boys two places up to eighth on 29 points, while Villa’s 10th victory in 19 games moved them a place up to fourth on 36.

On their part, Vipers fourth defeat in 19 games saw them drop a place to fifth on 35 points, while BUL stayed second on 39.

The repercussions of the above results are that both BUL and Vipers ceded more advantage to leaders Kitara by failing to pick points in their respective matches.

A BUL victory would have brought the Eastern side to within a point of leaders Kitara, who are on 43, both having played 21 games apiece, while a Vipers win would have returned them to third on 38 points.

But because they achieved none of the above, Kitara maintained their four-point lead at the summit as BUL exhausted their game in hand.

Vipers, who had three matches in hand coming into their fixture against KCCA, have also reduced that by one but without claiming any positives on the table.
