STARTIMES UGANDA PREMIER LEAGUE
URA 1-3 Vipers
Vipers slipped in their chase for a fourth title when they fell to a 1-3 defeat to URA on Friday at the Arena of Visions.
Saidi Kyeyune and Daniel Isiagi gave URA the lead in the first half. Fahad Bayo halved the deficit after the break, before Cromwel Rwothomio sealed URA's win.
It was an end-to-end affair on Friday.
The victory took URA closer to Villa, who are in third.
URA are now on 37 points. Villa, who have played a game less, have 40 points.
For Vipers, however, it is a disappointing result.
Defeat means that second-placed KCCA can move to within two points if they beat Express.
URA will next meet Express on Tuesday.
The league has taken a different shift.
