- Express Vs SC Villa – Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku @ 4pm
It is a fair bet that on Friday afternoon, the sight of Wasswa Bbosa on the Mutesa II stadium touchline will trigger a wider range of emotions than ever before among Express FC supporters.
It is the first time he returns as opposition coach after he was axed late last year and what makes his return more fascinating is that he does so with Red Eagles’ biggest rival, SC Villa.
Speaking to Kawowo Sports ahead of the game, Bbosa, who was part of the title winning coaching staff at Express in 2011/12, says he doesn’t think about what reception he will get.
“For me it doesn’t matter,” said Bbosa. “I enjoyed my time there and I never regret it. But am now at SC Villa,” he added.
When I was at Express, I always wanted to win every game including beating SC Villa. Now that am at Villa, I want to beat Express.
The Jogoos, top of the log with 47 points going into the derby are unbeaten under the former Express coach and have won three in succession.
Bbosa says despite a couple of injuries to key players; Emmanuel Okwi and Alex Kitaata, the available players are ready to battle for victory.
We have prepared for it like any other game. The target is to pick maximum points and I am confident my boys will come off better although we shall miss two key players.
Under Bbosa in the reverse fixture, SC Villa won 3-2 albeit with a would be genuine Herman Wasswa goal disallowed resulting into the ban of assistant referee, Musa Balikoowa Ngobi.
