The two most successful clubs in the top tier KCCA and SC Villa renew rivalry at the MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo with either targeting maximum points to stay in charge of the title race.

KCCA come into the game in second place on 38 points, five behind the Jogoos.

Both are wounded after suffering defeats in their last games with Villa losing to Arua Hill 1-0 at Wankulukuku while KCCA were beaten by URA at Lugazi.

The hosts have a new man in the dugout in Jackson Mayanja who is tasked to stead ship after Morley Byekwaso threw in the towel last week over a series of poor results.

“KCCA, SC Villa fixture is a big game. Big games are for players with big mentality,” said Mayanja who played many times against the Jogoos during his glittering career. “We need to show that we have the mentality for such games. I have come here to win and this is the most important thing,” he added.

“I respect SC Villa and they have worked hard to get where they are but this is a derby and we are KCCA FC. We have to step up and show we want it more than them.”

The hosts have only two players confirmed out in Usama Arafat and Dominic Ayella while Villa could miss the services of wingers David Owori and Jonah Kakande who suffered muscle injuries on Wednesday.
