With the 3rd place sealed already, SC Villa will make no mistake but to hand a chance to some of their fringe players as they host BUL FC for their final game of the season.
This hands them a glorious opportunity to rest their first team players who have a Uganda cup semifinal match against Vipers at Mutesa II stadium Wankulukuku on Sunday 27th.
Confirming the move, head coach Wasswa Bbosa said,
” I have no reason as to why I play my first team yet we have a crucial game on Sunday, this will will give chance to the players that haven’t been starting to prove what they can do”
“Samson Kirya, Ambrose Kirya and George Senkaba are injured yet captain Bernard Muwanga is nursing a minor injury sustained against Prolin. Any team that we put will be able to honour the fixture”.
SC Villa is third placed with 55 points from 29 games as their opponents BUL FC are 9th with 36 points from the same number of games.
SC Villa played to a barren stalemate against relegation threatened Proline FC away in their recent fixture at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo.
BUL FC lost to KCCA FC 2-1 at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo after Derrick Nsibambi denying them chance to move away with a point scoring the winner in the last minute of the game.
SC Villa: DDLWD
On the last seven meetings for both sides BUL FC is yet to register a win, SC Villa has won 4 and the 3 have ended in stalemates.
BUL FC lost 1-0 to SC Villa courtesy of Martin Kizza in the reverse fixture at Kakindu Stadium Jinja.
Ambrose Kirya and George Ssenkaba are ruled out due to injuries while skipper Bernard Muwanga is doubtful having sustained a knock in their last encounter against Proline.
Wasswa Bbosa is expected to change all his starting lineup as he is left with nothing to fight for but rest the players as he is to play Vipers SC in the semi finals of Uganda cup.
Hannington Ssebwalunyo, Pierre Kambale and David Otim will be the players to lead BUL in a hunt for a positive result.
Umar Mukobe and Yusuf Mukisa are ruled out of this encounter as Faizal Muledhu and Musa Walangalira are back .
SC Villa will not move positions but remain 3rd after maximising points, BUL FC can move from 9th and finish 5th incase they get maximum positions considering other fixtures go in their favour.
