Sixteen- time Uganda Premier League champions Sports Club Villa hosts their traditional rivals Kampala Capital City Authority ( KCCA) FC at the Bombo Military grounds, seeking to avoid their fourth consecutive defeat against the Kasasiro Boys.
The Jogoos have lost the last three league games to the Lugogo based side and will be hoping the outcome is different tomorrow evening when the two sides meet again at the Bombo Military barracks playground.
Villa goes into this game in 5th position, having garnered 4 points from their opening three games while the visitors, KCCA FC boast of a 100% start to the season having won all their matches this season and sit atop of the 16-team log.
Although they will be playing their third game in a less than a week, SC Villa expects to have a full squad to choose from on Tuesday while the visitors will be without Moses Aliro, Gift Ali, Julius Poloto, John Revita and Balinya Juma who are all out with injuries.
“We do not have Gift Ali, Poloto Julius, Juma Balinya and Moses Aliro.” KCCA FC head coach Mike Mutebi confirmed the absentees in the press conference before adding;
“The fixture comes early for Sadat Anaku and Gift Ali but we will see what happens against URA FC.”
For the Jogoos not to succumb to another loss, they will have to stop KCCA FC’s twin pairing of Brian Aheebwa and Samuel Ssenyonjo who have been so lethal since the season began. The pair have netted 10 of KCCA’S 12 goals this season.
