This fixture has produced only one win from the last 4 meetings and that came in May 2016 when Villa edged Police to a 1-0 away win. The rest have ended in stalemates of 2 goalless draws and most memorable being last season after Police came from 2-0 down to force a draw.
Emmanuel Okwi and Umaru Kasumba had put Villa in the lead only for Police to fight back courtesy of goals from Rahmat Senfuka and Antony Bongole in the 70th and 75th minutes respectively.
Villa come into this game fresh from an impressive 1-0 win over Soana FC in Masaka and Police are yet to kick a ball after being awarded 3 points and 3 goals by the Competitions committee from their aborted Match against Masavu that wasn’t played.
Police are expected to unleash the rejuvenated Juma Balinya and new recruits Gift Ali, Robert Madoi and Norman Ogik. They will also rely on youngster Albert Mugisa and Rahmat Senfuka for inspiration to down the Jogoos.
Wasswa Bbosa is also expected to ring some changes especially in the forward line by starting Vitalis Tabu, Mahad Kakooza and Martin Kiiza.
Police have won 3 and lost 2 of their last home games whereas SC Villa have won 2, drawn 1 and lost 2 of their last 5 away games in the league. Last season Police won 3 games at home, drew 7 and lost 5 whereas SC Villa won 6, drew 6 and lost 3 games away.
