In a closely contested match, Villa scored against Vipers first to take the lead in the 7th minute. Gavin Kizito utilized a mishandled ball by defender after a free kick from Umar Lutalo.
This awakened the Venoms who in turn mounted attacks on Villa’s goal, but missed a couple of chances.
In the middle of the pack, Villa’s Elvis Ngonde, Lutalo and Diego Missi Ssemugera dominated quite well.
When the second half started, Vipers increased their press on Villa who in turn dealt with everything Vipers threw their way.
On his debut, Eric Kambale came from the bench in the second half only to have a couple of good chances. He however missed twice from close range, failing to level matters.
However, with twelve minutes left on the clock, Mbowa scrambled to put an equalizer at the back of Villa’s net. This late goal came after Villa’s backline failed to clear a corner kick.
After everything, both teams went home with a point each, Vipers moving to 8 points in 4th as Villa move to 5 points in 7th.
