 Villa Vs Express: Rivalry To Unfold In Bombo

Wednesday, January 29
*SC Villa Vs Express FC – Bombo, 4PM
*Bright Stars Vs Maroons – 4:30PM
*BUL Vs Wakiso – Njeru, 4:30PM

Gone are the days when Villa – Express encounter was a title decider, but nonetheless, it’s still a fixture to look out for. Whether it still holds water than it used to be, will be a debate for another day.

The traditional giants will renew their acquaintances on Match-day 19 of the StarTimes UPL at Bombo due to unavailability of Namboole.

The Jogoos are fourth on the table with 30 points and come into the game on the back of away wins against Vipers, and Super Eagles (Uganda cup).

Having won the reverse fixture 1-0 thanks to a Ambrose Kirya strike, Villa will be seeking to complete a rare league double against their bitter rivals.

The hosts will be without Gavin Kizito while the game must have come very early for left back Yayo Lutimba.

Salim Abdallah is in contention for a league debut after scoring in Uganda Cup, however, Kirya and Bashir Mutanda are expected to lead the attack.

The Red Eagles on the other hand, will be without Dennis Sserukwaya who has accumulated three yellow cards.

Cyrus Kibande’s license is still pending, Hamdan Nsubuga and goalkeeper Mathias Muwanga will be given late fitness tests.

After a 6-1 humiliating loss to Police FC, George Ssimwogerere’s Express has bounced back with 3-0 victories against Proline and St Mary’s Nabweru (Uganda), and the side will be hoping for similar fortunes against a team they have not beaten since 2017.
