SC Villa head coach Wasswa has refused to be dragged into the talk that his team is now under pressure that his team is bound to surrender their challenge for the league should they fail to beat URA FC.
The record league champions currently lag behind Vipers SC by two points but with a game less and only a point above 3rd placed KCCA who have only played 16 games compared to SC Villa’s 17.
Villa have not won in 3 consecutive matches, the longest they have gone minus a victory this season, this however is a reason of no concern to head coach Wasswa Bbosa who maintains that his team aren’t under any pressure coming into the game against the tax collectors. He says,
“We are not under any pressure despite not winning in 3 games and surrendering our position at the top. The team is well prepared for the match and we are ready to reclaim our place.
“Every team experiences a bad patch of form and I hope our’s is behind us now, all the boys are available for selection and raring to go”.
URA has been the more dominant side from meetings between the two rivals with 5 wins 7 draws and 3 losses out of the last 15 encounters.
Despite the impressive record against SC Villa, URA’s last victory away came in the 2013/14 when the tax collectors thumped SC Villa 4-0.
URA are in a buoyant mood after defeating Bright stars in their previous league match which was also Paul Nkata’s first victory since taking over from Ibrahim Kirya in December 2017.
They currently sit 8th on the log with 23 points and a win against SC Villa will see them jump up to 5th on the log.
No fresh injuries have been reported from their camp and they hope Shafiq Kagimu will continue with his scoring form to enable them overcome the Jogoos who are still unbeaten at home.
