  • Akii-Bua stadium, Lira 4pm

Sixteen time champions SC Villa host KCCA in an unfamiliar territory at Akii Bua stadium with either aiming for not only three points but bragging rights.

Villa come into the game on the back of a 1-0 win over Arua Hill in Barifa while KCCA were held to a 1-1 draw by URA at Lugogo.

Jackson ‘Nelly’ Magera who was part of Mike Mutebi’s coaching staff at Lugogo wants to win against his former paymasters.

“I spent several years at KCCA but that’s in the past now,” he stated. “There isnt any emotional attachment as that’s the nature of our job,” he added.

He however expects a tough game against a side full of quality.

“They are giants of Ugandan football with almost everything – good players and coaches and that calls for a tough game.

“However, we have prepared well and the aim is to get all three points.”

KCCA’s Morley Byekwaso wants to see side improve their position on the log.

“We are not in a good position at the moment and can only improve if we win tomorrow and that will be the target,” said Byekwaso.

“The preparations have been good with every player focused and ready to give their all to ensure we take home three points.”

The two sides are separated by a single point with SC Villa 4th with 14 points while KCCA are 7th with 13 points.
