Villa Vs BUL
Date: Friday 5th January 2019
Kick off : 4:00pm
Venue: Mandela National Stadium Namboole.
Fresh from a daunting trip to Arua, SC Villa will embark on another tough challenge against BUL FC at Mandela National Stadium on matchday 14 of the Uganda Premier League.
Villa come in this tie having played to a goalless draw against Paidha Black Angels at Green Light Stadium Arua while BUL FC lost to KCCA FC 2-1 with Jean Pierre Kambale Muhindo scoring their only goal.
Bamweyana is however optimistic that his team are in position to earn their 3rd win of the season despite facing a tricky opponent.
We have prepared so well and our target is maximum points in our last two league games as we prepare for the Uganda Cup tie”
“This fixture against BUL is so important to us and we are going to play an attack minded game since we are home so our fans should come in large numbers to support us and if we get maximum points will boost us as we play our next opponent Police Fc”
The last seven meetings between the two sides have seen SC Villa win three, BUL once and the other three ending in stalemates.
Villa will bank on the services of leading league scorer Bashir Mutanda, Ashraf Mandela and youngster Derrick Ndahiro as they look for positive results.
Peter Onen will put his trust in Deogracious Ojok, Douglas Owori and Villa Oromchan to lead his side to any positive result.
Villa will miss the services shot stopper Samuel Kivumbi and skipper Ambrose Kirya who are nursing injuries.
BUL FC will be without brothers Joshua Lubwama who is sidelined with an injury and first choice goalkeeper Hannington Ssebwalunyo who is under suspension for accumulated yellow cards as Richard Matovu is doubtful as is yet to pass a late fitness test.
Twelveth with 13 points SC Villa can leap frog Tooro United from the 11th position after maximum points while their opponents can move from 9th where they are with 19 points to 5th in case they maximise the points.
