At a packed Philip Omondi Stadium in the Ugandan capital, the ‘City Lords’ took the lead after only 11 minutes through midfielder Paul Mucureezi, who controlled the ball before unleashing a thunderous shot past Villa keeper Yasin Mugabi.
Villa restored parity ten minutes into the second half through Tabu Vitalis from the spot, after defender Habib Kavuma handled in the vital area.
KCCA coach Mike Mutebi made changes to his squad on 70 minutes bringing on Isaac Muleme for Paul Mucureezi, Robert Ssentongo for Geoffrey Sserunkuuma whilst Brian Majwega came in for goal poacher Derrick Nsibambi.
Derick Nsibambi gave KCCA the lead again minutes later before reigning Player of the year Joseph Ochaya scored from corner in the 90th minute to put the icing on the cake.
Following the victory, KCCA have opened a seven point lead at the summit of the standings with 28 points after 12 games. Villa occupies second spot with 21 and having played a game less.
“I’m glad the boys showed it that we have the ability to retain the title this season. With such a performance, I know we shall make it, this is a derby and winning it gives you an edge” said KCCA coach Mutebi.
