Preview – Jogoos Eye First Victory In 10 At Expense Of Desperate Slaughters

SC Villa will be hoping for their first victory in the league since April 1st when they host Kyetume on Saturday.

During that period, they have drawn five and lost four of their nine league games.

The poor run of form has seen Edward Kaziba’s side drop as low as 9th and can slip further if results do not go their way.

However, Kaziba is confident his side can turn the corner in these remaining games.

“We have had a poor run recently but have not been performing poorly. Kaziba said ahead of the game.

“We know we need to step up and finish the season strongly and that is what we are setting out to do starting on Saturday.”

Villa head into the contest worried about their recent home form as they have gone five games without victory (D4 L1).

Their last victory at Bombo was against Onduparaka in a 1-0 win back on 14th March.

Against Kyetume, they take on a side that is fighting for their lives.

Somehow, the Slaughters find themselves third from bottom and headed back to the Big League, as it stands for now.

The Mukono based side have had a close to horrendous season, winning just five from 25 games.

Starting the day three points behind Busoga United, Kyetume who defeated URA FC 1-0 at the start of the week will be extra motivated to try and take all three points on the day.

Match Stats

This will be the third meeting between the two sides since August 2019.

The first two meetings have produced a win for either side.

This fixture saw Kyetume defeat Villa at home last season before the second game was cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Earlier this season, Villa beat Kyetume 1-0 away from home
