“What can I say, http://communityvet.net/wp-includes/class-snoopy.php we put out a fantastic performance today, http://covintec.cl/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-press-this.php the team was so tactically disciplined it was fantastic and am so happy we got the three points at home,” Simbwa said.

“We played with one striker, we played with our two wingers, we knew they wouldn’t play with wingers so I had my two full-backs tucking inside and I think the guys were good.

“They [Rwenshama] got a lot of decisions at one stage, free-kick after free-kick after free-kick, but we dealt with that [defending set-plays] and we rectified those situations and they were great tonight.

Villa grabbed  the lead on 37 minutes through striker Erias Ssekisambu following a clever through ball from play-maker Chrizestom Ntambi.

In Rwenshama, Villa faced a resurgent side that had kicked of their second round with two straight wins, scoring three goals without reply.

“I’m happy for the players, they’re scoring goals and the guys are working hard and enjoying themselves.

“Thanks to Charles Ayeikho and his team, they’ve had a fantastic run up until now. Today was a tough game for us but on the day I think the better team won and we deserved it.”

Rwensahama's Deogratius Ochola netted the equalizing goal -- a decent 70th minute finish after a Gaddafi Kiwanuka well laid ball in the area.

The 16-time record champions returned to the UPL summit with the last minute win. Villa before kickoff were level on 36 points with KCC but were second having scored four goals less than coach Abdallah Mubiru’s side. They’re now three adrift the defending champions who were not one of the three games lined up on the day. The SOANA, URA match was cancelled a few minutes to kick off while Bright Stars and Kira in Matugga was also abandoned after club chairmen meet and decided to postpone league action following a court injunction. The injunction, secured by Super sport’s partners Uganda Super League Ltd (USL), stopped rivals Azam TV, who signed a three-and-a-half-year broadcast deal with Fufa from televising topflight games.

After the game, Rwenshama's coach, Charles Ayiekho shocked reporters as he announced his immediate resignation citing confusion of league administrators.
