Preview: SC Villa Target Maximum Points
SC Villa will be eager to collect a positive result when they take on Arua Hill on Match-day Seven of the Uganda Premier League at Wankulukuku.
With just a solitary point in their last two league encounters including a recent 2-1 loss against BUL, the Jogoos find themselves struggling to maintain a consistent performance.
Their lone victory against NEC stands as a minor highlight in an otherwise underwhelming season thus far.
Having been seen as a formidable contender for the league title, the team’s current 11th position with merely five points, barely four points above the red zone, has left many supporters concerned.
There could be no cause for panic for a club under new coach Dusan Stjanovic yet but if poor results persist, especially if they fail to secure victory against Arua Hill, it may provoke fans to question the club’s direction.
Contrastingly, Arua Hill faces an even more challenging situation. With just one point garnered from six games, the recent draw against KCCA, snapping a five-game losing streak, stands as a glimmer of hope.
Financial struggles have been reported, not unexpected for a club that faced potential exclusion from the league before this season commenced.
Under the esteemed guidance of coach Livingston Mbabazi, Arua Hill is looking to build upon the momentum gained from their recent draw against KCCA.
The prospect of securing one or even three points against SC Villa offers a chance for an unforeseen turnaround in their season.
Last season, Innocent Media scored the only goal as Arua Hill stunned Villa at Wankulukuku.
