Preview: Third Visit Fourth

SC Villa aims to kick off the second half of the season on a strong note when they face Maroons at Wankulukuku on Thursday.

The closely contested match is anticipated, with just a two-point difference between the two teams in the standings.

Maroons currently holds the third position with 28 points, sitting above Villa.

Notably, the Jogoos concluded the first round with an impressive record, not conceding a single goal in their last three games.

They aspire to build on this run as they strive for a robust title campaign similar to the previous season.

Ivan Bogere, Hamza Mulambuzi, Davis Ssekajja, Rogers Kiwanuka, Dalton Oyo and Ivan Sserubiri are the departures at SC Villa in the January window.

In contrast, Maroons, after winning five of their eight away fixtures in the first round, enter the second round with a focus solely on the league following their Uganda Cup exit against lower division side Busei FC.

Their objective is to strengthen their position in the top standings.
