Preview – Tennant Or Land Lord?
SC Villa will play host to UPDF FC at Bombo Military Barracks in a StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter.
UPDF allowed Villa to use Bombo as their home ground since last season when the Jogoos moved away from Namboole.
It promises to be an equally contested affair with sixth placed Villa level on 15 points with UPDF in fifth.
The Jogoos have a 100% record at Bombo this season having won all their games at the venue beating Mbarara, KCCA, MYDA and Kitara.
UPDF FC on the other hand, have lost three straight on the road but will not feel the away pressure given that they will be playing at a familiar ground.
The Army side, after poor results since league return from the break, managed to beat Mbarara City 2-0 thanks to a goal each from Brian Kalumba and Kayanja.
The Jogoos needed an Isaac Ogwang equaliser to cancel out Douglas Muganga opener at Busoga United.
