Record League winners SC Villa welcome Police FC at Bombo in one of the four StarTimes Uganda Premier League games on Saturday.

SC Villa return to Bombo where they lost to UPDF, snapping their four-game winning run at home.

However, they beat Kyetume FC on the road thanks to Salim Abdallah to win their first away fixture this season in a game where goalkeeper Meddie Kibirige saved a penalty from Cephas Kambugu.

With 18 points in sixth place, Edward Kaziba’s charges will be going for maximum points as they seek to occupy the top positions on the table.

However, they have got to do it without key players Derrick Ndahiro and captain Asuman Alishe.

The visitors on the other hand, have a couple of missing players but they managed to overcome Mbarara City 3-1 thanks to an hat-trick from unlikely source – defender Hassan Muhamood.

The Peace Keepers are fifth with 23 points and will leapfrog KCCA with a victory.

Police are winless on the road since beating newcomers Kitara and MYDA in their opening two road games – They have two defeats and a recent 2-2 draw with Bright Stars.
