SC Villa will lock horns with Busoga United on Tuesday in the Star-Times Uganda Premier League at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru a game awaited to see boys being eliminated from men.
The Joggos come into this game with motivation from their previous win against Kitara and Busoga United come into this game fighting to rescue themselves from the relegation zone.
The hosts are yet to win a single game in 8 fixtures this season. They have accumulated 4 points from a possible 24, all coming from draws. Busoga United have managed to draw two games at home and away from home respectively. They have managed to score in all their four home games this season and in equal measure concede in all of them.
The Jogoos have a 2-in-1 challenge to overcome in this fixture. First, the boys will look to collect maximum points from the bottom three with a win against Busoga United. Secondly, they will be hoping to gain their away win of the season with four unsuccessful attempts.
This fixture is an opportunity for Edward Kaziba’s team to kick start a run of good away form in the league this season.
“We will have to put in a good shift tomorrow evening to overcome the obstacle ahead of us,” Villa Head coach Kaziba said.
Villa will be missing the services of Mohammedi Nsereko, Nasser Lukwago and Andrew Kiwanuka join Abdallah Ssekandi, Benson Muhindo, and Francis Olaki who are injured.

Elsewhere, KCCA’s head coach Mike Mutebi in a pre-match interview raised concern on how his team concedes.
“Our defence has been not been good enough. The opponent has not been too good but five of those goals we have conceded were mistakes of our defenders,” Mutebi added.
Mutebi further said the 5-0 Victory in their last game will act as their foundation to get points against the stubborn Wakiso Giants and warned the Kasasiro boys that the game will not be a piece of cake but rather they should expect a tough game.
