StarTimes Uganda Premier League
*BUL 1-0 SC Villa
*Wakiso 2-1 Blacks Power
Richard Wandyaka claimed both the winning goal and Pilsner Man of the Match accolade as BUL upstaged SC Villa to consolidate their table leadership on Friday.
The 1-0 victory at the Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru was BUL’s third in four matches as the Jinja side continued their solid start to the 2022/23 StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) season.
Coach Alex Isabirye’s BUL now have 10 points, establishing three between them and Villa in second both having played the same number of games.
Wandyaka’s goal, coming two minutes to full time, is the striker’s fourth in as many games, and has him leading the top scorers chart.
This was Villa’s first defeat, but for a team that inspired so little confidence before the start of the season, they will be happy with their effort so far.
The 16-time Ugandan champions have won two of their four games, including a 2-0 victory over rivals Express.
Villa have scored four goals along the way, with the one against BUL the first they were conceding.
Else where, Titus Ssematimba scored the winner as Wakiso Giants beat Blacks Power 2-1 at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium.
Norman Ojik got the hosts opener in the first half while Michael Siwu netted the visitors consolation late on.
Wakiso’s first victory in three StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) matches moves them up to seventh on four points.
The story is hardly rosy for league newcomers, Blacks Power. The Lira side remain rooted at the bottom of the 15-team table on one point from four games.
