SC Villa midfielder Taddeo Lwanga has described his club 2-1 win over rivals Vipers as absolutely important.

The Jogoos came from a goal down to win the closely contested tie at Nakivubo with a late winner from Ambrose Kirya after Lwanga had drawn the side level thirteen minutes after recess to cancel out Ibrahim Kayiwa’s first half goal.

Asked how much importance he attached to the victory against a side they had not beaten since 2009, Lwanga said.

Absolutely more important because we needed to narrow the gap between us and KCCA but also break that unwanted record against Vipers.

Of recent, the former Express man has got into goal scoring areas and put away a few chances with his second goal in as many competitive matches coming on Saturday.

He opened up on the reason behind that revealing it’s all about confidence and improvement in his game that comes day by day.

I am improving day by day.  My confidence is high and that makes me more offensive than before and getting into goal scoring areas.

True to his word, Lwanga took matters into his own hands in additional time, dribbled past a couple of Vipers players before he was tripped in the area for a last gasp penalty.

Though missed by Vitalis Tabu, Kirya was in the right place at the right time to pounce on the rebound.

The win, coupled with KCCA’s 3-2 victory against Proline maintains the gap between first and second as four points with the Kasasiro on top with 31.
