POLICE vs SC VILLA: The Jogoos aim to end eight match winless streak

Danito NSUBUGA 

SC Villa will visit Uganda Police FC in their quest to an 8 match winless streak that stretches back to start of round two.

They had started off on a high when they beat MYDA 2-1 in Tororo but have not tasted victory since then.

They have followed that win with 4 defeats and 4 draws and thus picking only 4 points out of a possible 24.

Losses to KCCA at Lugogo, Onduparaka in Arua, Mbarara city at Kakyeka and Vipers at Bombo, were followed with draws to BUL, Express, URA and Soltilo Bright Stars.

The poor patch has seen them stagnant in mediocrity with only 32 points after 24 points.

Police FC on the other hand have also failed to pick a win in their previous 3 league matches.

They have lost to Express and URA and drew with KCCA FC.

Head to head

The previous 5 league meetings between them have ended in draws but none has ended goalless

Key stats:

This fixture has produced a minimum of 16 goals in 5 meetings

Police have scored 27 goals while playing at Lugogo, only KCCA (34) and Wakiso Giants (28) have scored more while playing at home.

Villa on the other hand have managed only 12 goals when playing away from home. They have also conceded 17 times while on the road.

8 out of Police’s 11 wins have come at Lugogo. They have drawn twice and lost only twice at home.

Ruben Kimera limped off in the stalemate with KCCA at Lugogo, but he recovers in time to face Villa.

The match also comes too soon for captain Tonny Mawejje who sat out the trip to Ndejje through illness. He is expected to return on Saturday.
