SC Villa Vs Bul. FC – Nakivubo, Tuesday March 31, 2015, 4.30pm
Record league champions SC Villa start life without sacked Coach Sam Ssimbwa with a home date against Bull. FC at Nakivubo stadium on Tuesday.
The Jogoos parted ways with Ssimbwa despite his impressive record which the saw the club lose only once in 15 league outings.
In charge will be former players Phillip Obwiny and Ibrahim Kirya facing a Bul. FC side that held them goalless at Kakindu in what was Ssimbwa’s third game in charge of the Blues.
“We are aware of the big task that lies ahead of us but we are ready,” Ibrahim Kirya stated when quizzed not only about the game against Bul. FC but the remainder of the season with reports he and Obwiny will be in charge for the rest of the campaign.
The Jogoos head into the game five points behind log leaders Vipers and understand that any slip up with be a setback in their quest to win a 17th league title.
“Our target is to collect as many points as possible and keep pace with Vipers,” Steven Bengo told Kawowo Sports.
In the opposite dugout will be former Express and SC Villa midfielder, Joseph Mutyaba, also new at the helm after Bul. FC showed his former boss Kefa Kisala the exit.
Mutyaba’s side has failed to win their previous two league games losing away to Simba and at home to SC Victoria University but believes they have to return to winning ways sooner than latter starting with game against SC Villa.
“We are seeking redemption and there is no better time to face SC Villa than this with change of coaches,” said Mutyaba.
Steven Bengo, Chrizestom Ntambi, Erisha Ssekisambu and Victor Emenayo are expected to inspire the hosts to victory but must tame the threat posed by former player Robert Achema.
Bul. FC are 5th on the log and victory will see them to leapfrog URA incase the tax men fail to beat SCVU who they play at Namboole
