Villa recorded their first back to back wins of the season after also beating Busoga United on matchday 12

Tooro United’s obituary has already been written and all remaining is their send off even before the first round round is done.

They will surely need a Lazarus kind of miracle to resurrect from the ruins of relegation after only managing a single victory and a single draw this term.

The Edward Golola coached side are not only in shambles on the field, but also off it. From enduring months of none payment, to attending matchdays without a qualified technician on the touchline like they did against Vipers SC in their previous match at Kitende.

This evening, it would be an understatement if we said that more salt had been added onto their wounds.

They have swallowed four unanswered goals at the hands of a side that hasn’t won by a 2-0 goal margin all this term.

It was a field day for SC Villa who have also recorded their biggest victory of the season.

First half goals from Salim Abdallah and Nicholas Kabonge were followed by a second half penalty from substitute Benson Muhindo and winger Goffin Oyirwoth who scored late in additional time.

SC Villa goal keeper Martin Senkooto played one of his easiest games after being named to start ahead of Meddie Kibirige who is yet to recover fully from a finger injury.

Salim Abdallah scored early inside the first 10 minutes before Kabonge chipped in from a clever Oscar Mawa low cross on with just 5 minutes to the break.

On the hour mark, Benson Muhindo came on for Isaac Ogwang and he impacted the game in the 83rd minute with a penalty conversion.

Goffin Oyirwoth ensured Villa achieve a respectable scoreline and a back to back victory for the first time this season with a low shot in the dying minutes.

Victory sends Villa to 13 points and elevates them to 11th.

They will visit Soltilo Bright Stars on 4th January at Kavumba.

Tooro United remain on the bottom of the log with a mearger 4 points . They will host Express FC on the same day.
