Friday April 15, 2016, SC Villa vs SCVU – Nakivubo @ 4.30pm

Nakivubo Stadium will witness an interesting battle on Friday when two teams seeking to halt winless runs face off.

Hosts SC Villa have not won a league game since December 18 when they came from two goals down to win 3-2 against Express and have drawn five successive games while the visitors have lost all their previous five.

To make matters worse, SCVU have conceded 19 goals scoring just twice and have dropped to second from bottom on the 16 team standings with 19 points.

For SC Villa, they have dropped to 12th on the log on 27 points although they have played the fewest games in total thanks to their CAF engagements.

Coach Ibrahim Kirya, whose side return to league action for the first time in a fortnight, lost their previous competitive game 7-0 against Morocco’s FUS Rabat.

However, he says that is now behind the boys and the target is good performance domestically starting with tie against SCVU.

“All our focus is now on the domestic competitions,” he stated. “We have to move on from the 7-0 loss and start winning games in the league starting with SCVU,” he added.

The Jogoos are to miss the services of midfielder Taddeo Lwanga, who was sent off in the 2-2 draw against Vipers, but welcome striker Karim Ndugwa, who missed the trip to Morocco.

The 16-time league champions won the reverse fixture 2-1 at Namboole with Martin Kizza and Ambrose Kirya goals cancelling out Farouk Kawooya strike.
