ALEX Isabirye announced his return to form with a brace for SC Villa against hapless Mbarara yesterday.
Isabirye, who got injured and did not make the CECAFA club championship team, took his league tally to seven, joint leading scorer with Express’ Hassan Mubiru.
The international striker set Villa on the winning path in their Nile Special Super League (NSSL) game at Mandela stadium as early as the 19th minute.
He sent a powerful shot past Mbarara keeper Abasi Yahaya, got a second five minutes later before Kasongo scored his fourth goal of the season.
Isabirye returned to action last Saturday, scoring a goal in Villa’s 4-1 win over Muzinga in an African Champions League preliminary, first leg tie.
Mbarara United could be said to have lost the game before kickoff, when they arrived late for the match without a coach.
Their long serving player Abdul Senga gave the orders from the bench, and even when he introduced himself in the second half, it really made no difference.
The win pushed Villa from third to second as they mount pressure on league leaders URA.
Villa return to action on Saturday against bogey side Police.

- Two former Express players will be working to bring down the Wankulukuku side in today’s Nile Special Super League.
Winger Kefa Kisala and player-coach George Ssemwogerere lead Masaka LC to Wankulukuku.
Memories of a controversial penalty that saw Masaka lose to Express 3-2 in last season’s first round —centre referee Ben Matovu was banned after— are still fresh.
Masaka later avenged that defeat in Masaka.
After managing only a draw against Police in their last game, Express coach Leo Adraa has a chance to put his side back on track.
