SC Villa’s winless streak extends to nine games following draw with Police at Lugogo

Hazel Twine 

Record league champions SC Villa have extended their infamous winless run to a record 9 matches.

Villa last won a league game on the opening day of round two when they defeated MYDA in Tororo.

Since then, they have lost 4 matches and drawn 5 matches and are now static in 8th place with only 33 points .

They will drop further should UPDF pick a point off KCCA FC tomorrow morning in their abandoned match due to a heavy downpour at Bombo.

Coming into this fixture, the two sides had drawn in their previous 5 meetings and surprisingly, the reverse fixture at Bombo also ended 1-1.

Nicholas Kabonge met a well delivered cross from Saddam Masereka from the right wing and smashed a superb shot that beat Tom Ikarah in Police’s goal to give the visitors a lead on 55 minutes.

Villa had been the better team even in the first period.

Their lead was however short lived when former fans darling Herman Wasswa met a poorly cleared ball to send a rebound into the roof to beat young Martin Martin Senkooto who was making his debut. His goal was recorded on the 58th minute.

First choice goalkeeper Saidi Keni was ruled out through injury, whereas his assistant Medi Kibirige flew out of the country with the national Beach soccer team.

Police FC custodian Tom Ikarah was not able to complete the match after seeing red for handling the ball outside his restricted area.

Police remain 6th with 39 points whereas SC Villa are a distant 8th with 33 points.
