patient geneva;”>Angelo Lonyesi’s Police continued their poor run of form meaning they remain third from bottom on 18 points, information pills hardly a place to be in with relegation looming.

This was a welcome victory for Mike Mutebi’s side coming off a chaos-marred Uganda Cup game in which Villa fans pelted stones contesting URA’s third goal, a penalty.

It is now three league wins on the trot for Villa and Mutebi believes confidence is slowly coming to the team.

“We are playing more as a team,” he told after the match watched by few hundreds of fans.

“But we have a long way to go. The problem of our (Ugandan) footballers is once they exchange a few passes, they think that is all. They think they are playing good football. We need to add products.”

Mutebi’s concerns were evident in the first half as Villa dominated proceedings but lacked decisiveness in the final third.

He had to introduce Ndawula after half time and the forward made immediate impact on the hour.

Ndawula picked the ball from the midfield and exchanged a few passes with Steven Bengo before Ronald Muganga controlled the resultant pass in the box for an advancing Ndawula to venomously strike it into the top right corner for a 60th minute lead.

Villa’s leading scorer, Ndawula, was netting his seventh goal of the season.

For the first time there were smiles on the Villa bench and the Blue end of fans.

Police goalkeeper, Kawesa, was at the heart of Villa’s second five minutes later as his poor kick was collected by Wasswa, who struck with his left and the ball deflected in off Muganga for the second.

Wasswa should have added icing to the cake moments later when he rounded Kawesa only to hit the woodwork.
