Uganda Premier League: Friday, 28th April 2017
- SC Villa Vs Police – Masaka Recreational Stadium, 4:30 p.m
When Sports Club Villa Jogoo moved to their home ground from Nakivubo stadium to Masaka, the intention and mission was underlined in bold – to transform the Masaka Recreational stadium into a fortress.
Club President Ben Immanuel Misagga swore to convert the ground into an intimidating cradle ground.
True to the club ambitions and goals thus far, SC Villa Jogoo has not lost any game at Masaka.
Bar the 1 all draw with log leaders, KCCA last week, SC Villa has been on a winning streak in Masaka.
On Friday evening, Police Football Club will travel to the Recreational ground to play SC Villa Jogoo.
Abdallah Mubiru’s charges cannot take the game lightly since they are not safe from the relegation politics since they are 11th with 29 points.
Fresh from their 2-0 home win against Vipers at Namboole, Police has the impetus to pull off a decent result away from home.
From the basis of their last training at Kibuli S.S on Friday morning, Police will assemble an attack minded side.
In Ruben Kimera, skipper Ben Ocen, Yasin Mugume, Michael Birungi as well as the tried and tested Anthony ‘Cassano’ Bongole, Police has the ammunition to cause havoc on any given day.
Wasswa Bbosa’s coached SC Villa eyes maximum points with prayers that KCCA falters against Express at Wankulukuku on the same day.
SC Villa’s January signing Emmanuel Okwi has been the revelation of the club in the second half of the season.
Okwi has scored 9 goals so far and has been a great pillar to the side.
Robust right back Joseph Nsubuga, midfielder Ambrose Kirya, Umar Kasumba, Ayub Kisaliita and wingers Vitalis Tabu and Martin Kiiza are quite other important players for the home side that will be spurred by the enthusiastic crowd.
Police’s goalie Yasin Mugabi will be under scrutiny as he faces a side that he has served with passion since childhood.
May the better side carry the day.
