StarTimes UPL: Villa seeking return to winning ways as they host Onduparaka


Sixteen-time Uganda Premier League champions SC Villa are seeking a return to winning ways as they host Onduparaka FC at the Bombo Military Playground on Sunday evening. The game will be shown live on Sanyuka TV.

The Jogoos head into this game without a win in their last two games after they drew 2-all with Police FC at home the last weekend before they were humbled by SC Viper 3-0 on Wednesday at the St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende

Their Opponents, Onduparaka FC were at home in their last league fixture and outclassed Mbarara City 1-0 following a Kabon Livin goal after Moses Okot was bought down in the forbidden area.

The Caterpillars sit a place above the Jogoos on the StarTimes Uganda Premier league log with 21 points garnered in their 13 games played so far, while SC Villa is on 19.

On the road, the Caterpillars have played six games this season, won four and lost two while SC Villa has played six games at home, won four, lost once and drawn once.

Victory for SC Villa against Onduparaka would take them above the Caterpillars as they would get to 22 points.
