KCC FC’s troubles worsened yesterday with a second consecutive defeat. The result played in favour of fellow title contenders URA, who after losing to lowly Utoda on Friday, bounced back with a win to regain the Ecobank Uganda Super league lead.

As Matia Lule’s side succumbed to a 3-1 loss to Bunamwaya three days after being defeated by Masaka, URA edged Villa to take a three point lead in the 14 team race. URA now have 38 points.

The tax collectors’ versatile right winger Dan Wagaluka struck the winner off a Steven Bengo corner after Hamis Kizza sent defenders running the wrong way.

Kizza positioned as if he was going to fire in the low ball but instead jumped it leaving Wagaluka all alone. “It is a morale boosting win. But I must say we were up against a very improved Villa side,” noted URA coach Alex Isabirye.

At Nakivubo, Mike Mutyaba was the man who did the damage. The match seemed destined for a 1-all draw after goals from Tony Odur and KCC’s Kamada “Ndiefi” Ssebagala.

KCC’s fortunes however changed with a 71st minute handball.

Mutyaba scored the resultant penalty but referee Ali Kalyango ruled that there had been encroachment in the box.

Mutyaba was offered another chance and again fired in the same spot to give the defending champions a 2-1 lead. The Cranes player then stretched the margin in injury time.

Godfrey Wakaza was Simba’s star at Pece stadium. Wakaza showed scant respect for the hosts with a brace.
