Wakiso Giants 1-2 SC Villa

Benson Muhindo has proved to be a go to man for Petros Koukras after holding his nerve to convert a 59th minute penalty which earned SC Villa a much needed victory against 10 man Wakiso Giants.

The Jogoos also managed to avenge the first round defeat inflicted on them by Wakiso Giants at Kavumba.

Muhindo’s goal came as a relief giver to goalkeeper Martin Senkooto who had gifted Wakiso Giants with an first half equaliser.

The young custodian poorly dealt with a shot that he could have easily collected and he spilled it in Moses Aliro’s path to level matters for the home side.

Villa had taken an early deserved lead through defender Gift Fred who leaped highest to head in a Nicholas Kabonge corner kick on 7 minutes.
