SC Villa will be on the hunt for a season’s first victory when they host URA FC at the Mandela National stadium on Tuesday afternoon.
Moses Basena’s 16 time record league champions have endured a frustrating start to the 2018/19 campaign, losing two of their first four games and sitting second from bottom of the 16 team log.
In their last league game, the Jogoos were subjected to a 3-1 home loss at the hands of reining champions, Vipers SC, in a game that Villa controlled at some point.
Aside from the defeat to Vipers, Basen’s side has also lost to Onduparaka at home whilst drawing the other two games (2-2 vs Kirinya and 0-0 vs Bright Stars).
Their hunt for victory however, pits them with a URA side that is still unbeaten in the league and also shares the same home ground with them (Villa).
The Tax Collectors are riding high in fourth after winning two and drawing two from their opening four games.
In the last game, Sam Simbwa’s side had to come from a goal down to salvage a draw away to Maroons.
Vitalis Tabu who was at Villa last season will have a chance to take on his former employers and will be a key after making a bright start to life with the Tax Collectors.
The winger has already bagged two goals and an assist in his first two games and Simbwa will be hoping he is in red-hot form on Tuesday.

Nyamityobora vs Police FC @04:30pm
Kirinya JSS vs Vipers SC 04:30pm
Ndejje University vs Paidah Black Angels @04:30pm
