However this won’t be an easy task since Brian Ssenyondo’s Synergy stand in Makumbi’s way.
Synergy come from Masaka a former base for Masaka local council whose relegation left the passionate fans yarning to have another Super league club from amidst them.
Sc Villa host their home games in Masaka recreation grounds now,but many fans are looking at it as an external club yet the likes of Synergy are typically their own with more players amongst the local population. Therefore, many football lovers are looking at Synergy to bridge the gap which was left by Masaka LC.
Synergy defeated Kira United by 3-1 to reach the promotional finals were they will meet Mbarara city.
The two met in the Rwenzori regular season and Mbarara city won the first leg at home 1-0 and Synergy won the return leg 2-1.
Both sides come in the encounter today at Philip Omondi with a lot of belief and ready to compete against each other.
A win for either side Synergy or Mbarara city will bring about that much needed passion, commitment and agony in Ugandan football as both teams have put up spirited fights in their previous games.
