Leaders SC Villa have a chance to go six points clear at the summit if they overcome Maroons at Masaka Recreation Ground on Saturday.

Wasswa Bbosa’s side go into the game on 32 points, three better than KCCA who lie second but with the champions away on continental duty, a win for the Blues will put them on 35 points.

“This is a very important game for us,” said Bbosa. “In every game we play, the target is three points and we shall fight for that against Maroons,” he added.

The hosts will bank on a brilliant home record that has seen them go 13 successive games at the ground without a loss.

Besides, only two teams (KCCA and Police) have picked a point at the ground.

Davis Kasirye is expected to earn his debut for the Jogoos but the focus will remain on Allan Kyambadde, Martin Kizza, Godfrey Lwesibawa and Simon Sserunkuma to lift the team.

Maroons needed a last gasp equaliser to snatch a point against the Jogoos at Luzira and have not lost a game since the 2-0 defeat at Wankulukuku in September last year.

Asaph Mwebaze’s side lies 7th on the log with 24 points.
