There is still a lot to fight for in the Azam Uganda premier league, Vipers’ win against KCCA on 26th ,04,2017, has swung the pendulum back in Villa’s favour who are level on points with the leaders tied on 48 points but with KCCA having played 2 games less.
Police also need at least 6 points to survive relegation and this factor alone makes it enough to make this game a thrilling encounter. Villa are unbeaten at their new home in Masaka having managed to collect a massive 11 points from the last 5 home games.
Police on the other hand are enjoying a fine run of form and they have seen their fortunes turn ever since the appointment of Abdallah Mubiru, they have also managed to pick an impressive 7 points on the road.
This has been a very closely contested fixture but Villa leapfrog their opponents with 6 wins, Police winning 4 and drawing 5, the most recent being a 0-0 stalemate in this season’s first round.
Hood Kaweesa (4 goals) and Rahmat Ssenfuka ( 3 goals) will need to find their scoring boots if they are to put up a serious fight against the Jogoos, goal keeper Yasin Mugabi will not be facing his former pay masters as he is at Police on a loan deal from Villa whereas Umaru Kasumba will be looking to find his goal scoring boots against a team that gave him rise to stardom.
Emmanuel Okwi will look to extend his impressive goal tally and Farouk Musisi may given a nod over Adriko John after impressing in the last fixture against KCCA when he was brought on as a substitute whereas Godfrey Lwesibawa and Alex Kitata are still missing out.
Villa’s probable line up
Samson Kirya, Nsubuga Joseph, Farouk Musisi, Katongole Henry, Mbowa Patrick, Taddeo Lwanga, Abel Eturude, Kirya Ambrose, Emmanuel Okwi , Kasumba Umaru, Martin Kiiza
