Preview: Villa Out To Topple Minnows

SC Villa will seek to ease past struggling Kitara FC at Bombo Barracks grounds in one of the four league games this Saturday.

The Jogoos have picked four points from a possible six since league return – Beating MYDA and drawing 2-2 with Wakiso Giants.

Against Wakiso, they had to recover from two down thanks to a Salim Abdallah brace at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium.

They have been outstanding at home, and this is the game they look to win comfortably given the poor form of the visiting side.

Kitara FC, since their opening draw against Kyetume, have lost six games in a row.

They are languishing in the red zone – They have one point to show from the seven league games.

Time and excuses are running out for under fire coach Tonny Ssekito whose side has been baptised with fire since joining the top flight.

They looked resolute in their recent game against Mbarara which they lost 1-0, a big improvement from the team that lost 5-0 to Bright Stars recently.

Against Villa, they face a ruthless side that is looking to add points as they seek to climb into the top places on the log.
