SC Villa’s chances of winning the Uganda Premier League title suffered a major blow after playing to a goalless draw with relegation threatened Express.
The result saw Villa move joint second with KCCA on 54 points, five behind leaders Vipers with two games left to end the season. But KCCA also have game in hand and a superior goal difference.
The game that lived to its billing saw both sides miss chances in the match played at a soggy Wankulukuku Stadium pitch after a heavy downpour.
Villa's goalkeeping coach Mubarak Kiberu was on the touchline in the absence of head coach Wasswa Bbosa who was still serving his final game of a three match ban, while his assistant Paul Mukatabala, was recently suspended by the club.
The result leaves Express third from bottom on 28 points.
