Kagaba dribbles past KCCA's Muzamir Mutyaba in a previous game.

URA FC sneaked back into the league top five pack after registering a brilliant 3-0 win over Sports Club Villa.

The tax collectors needed redemption after a three winless streak in the league where they lost to Soana and BUL before a goalless draw with Sadolin Paints.

Coach Kefa Kisala opted to start youngster Nicholas Kagaba in his squad with Frank Kalanda starting upfront as the lone striker in place of Robert Ssentongo who was mysteriously missing from the match day team. Oromchan Villa also made it to the team though he could only feature for the last three minutes.

Kagaba scored the first goal after 20 minutes of play from around 20 yards with a first time curling stunner to the top left apex. SC Villa defense had failed to break the tax collectors move that originated from the centre snaking through Kagaba, buy information pills Kyeyune, Feni and Kigongo.

The Jogoos next half chance arrived after ten minutes with a good counter attack initiated by Mike Ndera before he laid for Achema.

The former BUL striker sped into the box but decided to shoot direct into Setuuba’s hands in a one-on-one situation gifting the hosts a lead into the break.

Frank Kalanda doubled the pressure on the Villa bench with a second goal eight minutes from the breather. Saudi Kyeyune had earlier on tried to shoot but missed a step and his feeble shot drifting astray for a goal kick.

However, Nicholas Kagaba sped off and saved the ball before slotting back for Kalanda. The lanky striker hit hard but was blocked, he then struck back the rebound into the roof top of the jogoos net. The visitors diverted Kyeyune’s shot into their own net just two minutes later.

The win returns the tax collectors into the top five pack with 43 points pushing down Police who have two less. URA’s next fixture is against SC Victoria and Vipers SC.
