Preview: Kampala Derby Welcomes Alex Isabirye

Express and SC Villa collide in the country’s most fiercest derby at Wankulukuku Stadium.

The derby is evenly poised as both teams are sharing an equal standing with 13 points.

This match-day six fixture was previously postponed due to Express FC’s fan misconduct after they attacked Assistant referee Fahad Ssekayuba.

In their recent encounters, Express failed to beat league leaders BUL following a goalless draw despite BUL playing with a numerical disadvantage after two players were sent off.

In response to their performance, Express FC dismissed head coach James Odoch and has since replaced him with Alex Isabirye.

Odoch’s sacking was met with mixed reviews but Isabirye’s appointment is a welcoming note after the gaffer notably guided Vipers to a league title last season.

Meanwhile, SC Villa, enjoying an unbeaten streak of four matches, enters this fixture as favorites against Express FC who are winless in their last five outings.

Last season, SC Villa emerged victorious in both encounters against Express FC, marking their dominance in this matchup.
