Saturday March 10, 2018

  • Onduparaka vs SC Villa – Green Light Stadium, Arua 4pm

SC Villa have a chance to go four points clear at the top of the log but must beat Onduparaka at the intimidating Green Light stadium.

The two sides face off on Saturday afternoon with the Jogoos not only seeking a win but also end Onduparaka’s impregnable home record that stretches to over four years now.

The visitors have been poor on the road with just two wins but have only lost as many, to giants KCCA (1-0) and Vipers (1-0) and Lugogo and Kitende respectively.

Captain Bernard Muwanga is suspended for the Jogoos after accumulating three yellow cards but Isa Lumu, who made a second half substitute appearance in the 2-0 Uganda Cup win over Bright Stars in midweek.

Martin Kizza, Godfrey Lwesibawa and Yubu Bogere will again be the main attacking force the visitors will rely on.

Onduparaka, 1-0 losers to Kirinya Jinja SS in their previous game will hope forwards Ezra Bilda and Ceaser Okhuti are in fine form.

Last season’s corresponding fixture produced seven goals with The Caterpillars winning 4-3.
