Emmanuel Okwi was blunt against Proline

SC Villa’s chances of winning the league title in 2016/17 suffered a further dent after drawing goalless with Proline at Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo.

Wasswa Bbosa’s side were dominant from the first whistle but failed to capitalize on the large portion of possession despite threatening endlessly.

In the first half, Emmanuel Okwi and Ambrose Kirya forced two good saves from Proline goalkeeper, Saidi Keni while Martin Kizza missed a great chance to put his side in the lead with only Keni to beat thanks to a last ditch tackle by Savio Kabugo.

At the other end, Ibrahim Kiyemba, who continued at right back cleared off the line in the only one chance the hosts created.

It was no different in the second half as the Blues, who recently announced relocation to Masaka pressed for the winner but in vain.

Okwi, Kirya and substitutes Umar Kasumba and Vitalis Tabu all came close but were lethargic as the game ended with yet another frustrating draw for the 16-time league champions who have now drawn four of the previous five games.

With more than two games played over log leaders KCCA, SC Villa are second on the table with 38 points, three adrift of the reigning league champions whilst Proline move to 9th with 23 points, same as Police after 19 games but with a better goal difference.
