Emmanuel Okwi continued his goal scoring spree with a winner for SC Villa against Bul at Masaka Recreation Ground to open a four point gap at the league summit.

The centre forward scored from 12 yards after a hand ball in the area by Paul Kisige.

The former Simba and Yanga forward, who missed a penalty against Onduparaka at the same venue a month ago made no mistake this time round as, he found the back of the net to send the home fans into frenzy.

Overall, the Jogoos were the better side and should have scored earlier in the first half only to be denied by the cross bar at a time Ambrose Kirya appeared to have found the back of the net.

Wasswa Bbosa’s side, which leads the log with 47 points, having played three more games than second KCCA missed the services of skipper Taddeo Lwanga through injury while Godfrey Lwesibawa made a return to the starting after a long injury lay off.

The visitors had to play the last four minutes with a man less after Patrick Ssembuya was sent off for a blatant foul of Okwi who also failed to return to the pitch with fears his arm had been broken.

However, he later tweeted there was nothing serious to calm fears and the record league champions will hope he returns in time to face rivals Express in their next league outing.
