Late Muhindo penalty salvages derby point for Villa against KCCA

Danito NSUBUGA

Substitute Benson Muhindo converted a late penalty kick to steal a valuable point for the record champions at FUFA technical centre Njeru.

The fast paced winger nick named “Adama Traore” made a superb run into the penalty area and he was brought down by John Revita which prompted referee William Oloya to point to the spot.

Muhindo flawlessly sent Benjamin Ochan the wrong way and sent the derby into a stalemate.

The first 45 minutes ended goalless but it was the visitors who created more scoring opportunities.

Charles Lwanga and Davis Kasirye both recieved massive opportunities to hurt their former team the young Martin Senkooto stood tall.

Senkooto had no substitute goalkeeper on the bench.

Rogers Mato broke the deadlock on 72 minutes with his second consecutive goal for KCCA after also scoring against Police FC in KCCA’s previous match.

His goal appeared good enough to win all three points before Muhindo was brought on in the 85th minute. He replaced Isaac Ogwang and he made the difference for Villa.
