Villa Vs URA: Hosts Target URA Scalp

Friday, November 1
*SC Villa Vs URA – 4:00PM
*BUL Vs Kyetume – 4:30PM

SC Villa host URA FC in what is expected to be an epic encounter at neutral ground, Luzira prison grounds.

Villa who have been inconsistent recently, have drawn three and won twice in their last five games.

Edward Kaziba’s side sit fourth on the log with 16 points from nine games, six points above URA.

The Jogoos will continue to bank on strong team work and togetherness on the pitch without relying on any individual player, however, they will need target man Bashir Mutanda to start scoring and lift the burden off their midfield.

Luzira could serve an advantage to the hosts as they had already played a game against owners Maroons FC on the same pitch.

URA on the other have won only one game in their last five, lost against Tooro and drawn three games and sit in 10th position on the log with 10 points in eight games.

URA have only managed to win twice this season that’s against Onduparanka and Maroons in their season opener which piles more pressure on Sam Ssimbwa.

Ssimbwa has a tricky upcoming fixure of that include Police, Express and Vipers in space of about 11 days if all factors remain constant.

The creative duo of Shafic Kagimu and Saidi Kyeyune are expected to reprise as the side look to defy odds while Ashiraf Mandela will be pointing guns at his former bosses.

Last season, Patrick Mbowa’s header in the first half was enough as URA beat Villa at Namboole after the reverse fixture had ended goalless.
