The Aki bua stadium will be on fire when SC Villa host city rivals KCCA FC in their ninth game of the Startimes Uganda Premier League season on Friday.
Joogos will hold onto atmost confidence as they get into the game after winning the previous game 1-0 against Arua Hill courtesy of a Charles Bbaale penalty.
The team from the blue side of the city will not have most of their fans after it was sent to host games in Lira since they(fans) earlier appeared unruly (against Wakiso Giants) and then got heavily punished.
The Joogos were also docked off two points, goals and later as part of the punishment.
Villa lay 4th on the log with 14 points and will hope to get into the game with all their guns blazing having been given a boost of the returnee Travis Mutyaba who has been away on school engagements.
They will hope to add him on the batch of the team’s current attackers like season revelation Jonah Patrick Kakande and Charles Bbaale who has been inconsistent in this performances but banging in the goals.
On the otherside, they face a KCCA side that will be hoping to get back to winning ways after their one-all draw against Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club on the previous match day.
The Kasasiro Boys will hope to jump onto the opportunity that their opponents are home away from home by imposing their style of football on them, similar one to that of Wakiso Giants.
Despite the fact that both sides don’t have the same amount of games, both sides will be seeking for a win and particularly the fifth for the boys from the yellow side of the City.
Away from all the talk, most of the derby games are not decided on form but rather on who is better on the day something was portrayed in Villa’s away game against KCCA that ended 0-0.
FORM in last five games.
SC Villa won their last game away in Arua against Arua Hill 1-0 while KCCA FC was held to a 1-1 draw at home by URA.
What would a win do?
All factors left constant, a win for SC Villa will take them to second in place of BUL, a point behind log leaders Wakiso Giants.
For KCCA, a win too will take them to 16 points and second in place of BUL
SC Villa will be boosted by the return of Travis Mutyaba but Martin Elungat is still injured while Rogers Kiwanuka will not be able to get involved since he’s not fully fit.
For KCCA FC welcome back Shaban Muhamad from injury and traveled with the team to Lira.
Denis Iguma will continue to miss out due to suspension.
