Ndejje University FC beat SC Villa 1 : 0 to gain advantage in the round of 32 Uganda Cup fixture. The university team will carry this slim but solid advantage into the return fixture to be played later in the week at the Bombo Grounds..
Brian Ssali scored the only goal of the game in the 37th minute, to give his team an early lead thanks to Goerge Akena’s cross that found him unattended inside the box.
Despite finding themselves one player down, when Nicholas Luzige was sent off in the 65th minute, the Ndejje University side held on to secure a 1 : 0 win ahead of the return leg.
The return leg of this fixture will be played at Arena of Visions over the weekend where the team that emerges winners will progress to the round of 16. This year’s Uganda Cup will be played on a home and away basis except for the final. Ndejje still have a task ahead before we can tag them giant-killers.
