After suffering a 1-0 loss to Mbale Heroes in a trial game on Saturday, SC Villa will now face another test against fellow Premiership side, Bright Stars.

The Jogoos will host the friendly at Villa Park on Wednesday August 30 and it will be their last game before a trip to Rwanda where they are scheduled to test their prowess against giants Rayon Sport and APR FC.

“We have confirmed the two international friendlies in Rwanda against Rayon Sports and APR both at Amahoro stadium,” SC Villa CEO Valley Mugwanya earlier confirmed to Kawowo Sports in regards to Rayon Sport and APR ties.

The pre-season friendly against the Kawempe based will officially be the Jogoos fourth as they prepare to wrestle the league crown from rivals KCCA when the league kicks off on September 12.

The Blues won 4-2 against South Korea’s Hallelujah in Masaka, drew goalless with Uganda Cranes and lost 1-0 to Mbale Heroes on Saturday.

SC Villa hasn’t won a league title in 13 years with their last championship coming in 2004.

SC Villa XI against Mbale Heroes: Samson Kirya (GK), Musa Mukasa, Farouk Musisi, Isa Lumu, Joseph Nsubuga, Nicholas Kasozi, Godfrey Lwesibawa, Mahad Kakooza, Allan Kyambadde, Alex Kitaata and Kirya Ambrose.

Substitutes: Sanon Mulabi (GK), Yubu Bogere, Alex Ssemuyaba, Abel Eturude, Salim Abdu Noor and Abdu Omar Ssekandi.
