Maroons stadium, Luzira
- Saturday, 12th October 2019 4PM
Coach Douglas Bamweyana will be the centre of attraction as Maroons FC host SC Villa in a league game on Saturday.
This will be the first time; the flamboyant tactician currently at Maroons FC will face his former employees.
Bamweyana was at SC Villa last season but his spell was met with criticism from the fans with the club struggling to fend off relegation.
At Maroons FC, he has had a good start winning four games in the seven games played and the Prison Warders come into Saturday’s clash on the back of a 2-1 win against Mbarara City FC.
The former Express FC and SC Villa gaffer has made several changes at Maroons FC including a change in the way the team plays, employing a three-man backline.
Striker Steven Mukwala on loan from Vipers SC has had a descent start in Luzira and has become a key figure for the two-time league winners, scoring three goals.
He will be a threat to SC Villa backline with his pace and the fact that he has now found his scoring touch.
SC Villa on the other hand are also enjoying a good spell and the club has gone 7 games unbeaten since the loss to Kyetume FC on match Day One.
Coach Kaziba is delighted that the team is playing well and hopes the momentum is kept throughout the season.
“It is good that we are playing well and I believe we can still improve. The team has jelled together and I hope we can maintain this going forward.”
The Jogoos however make the trip to Luzira missing some of their key players who are ruled out of the game.
Ambrose Kirya is suspended for accumulating three yellow cards, while midfielder Emma Kalyowa is side-lined with an injury he picked in the win against Wakiso Giants FC.
Striker Faizal Muwawu and left back Yayo Kato Lutimba are also ruled out with injuries. SC Villa is second on the log with 15 points while Maroons FC occupies 5th spot with 12 points.
