Coach Ibrahim Kirya's SC Villa managed a 2-1 win over army side Simba SC on Tuesday to go top of the Azam Uganda Premier League (UPL) table.

The blues who have not won silverware for several years but seem very motivated to take it this season scored through Dennis Kamanzi and Victor Emenayo. An own goal by Isaac Muleme was not enough for the hosts.

Moses Basena, the Simba SC Coach said his players failed to take their chances, while the opponents were more clinical.

SC Vipers who had topped the log for several weeks failed to collect maximum points away to SC Victoria University when the two sides settled for a 1-all draw at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole. Fahad Toko scored for the hosts, while Julius Malingumu netted for SC Vipers.

Defending champions KCCA FC maintained their third place on the log with a goalless draw against Bidco FC, while Kira Young stopped Soana FC 2-1.

Express FC who shocked KCCA FC 3-0 last week stopped Police 1-0 with John Ssemazi scoring the lone goal, while Bright Stars FC managed a 1-0 away win over Entebbe FC. The battle for the title remains between SC Villa and SC Vipers who are yet to face-off in the second round.
