Uganda Premier League (Match Day 30):

Saturday, 4th May 2019: SC Villa Vs Nyamityobora – Mandela National Stadium, Namboole (4 PM)

Uganda Premier League record winners Sports Club Villa were officially pronounced safe after Onduparaka’s slim 1-0 victory away to Ndejje University at the Arena of Visions in Bombo on Friday.

Viane Ssekajugo scored the last minute gasp winner to inspire the Catarpillars to their 12th win of the season, displacing Mbarara City from 5th place.

This victory meant a great relief for Sports Club Villa who were engaged in relegation politicking with Ndejje University.

On 26 points from 29 matches, the loss to Ndejje University meant that they can not be above SC Villa who currently have 32 points from the same number of matches ahead of their final home game against Nyamityobora at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole on Saturday.

The turbulent times for the Jogoos have witnessed them lose as many as 10 matches and drawing 13 times.

The Jogoos top management is still managed by an interim executive ahead of the club’s elections in the ‘future’.

Since the resignation of Moses Basena as head coach, the club hired Douglas Bamweyana and Simon Peter Mugerwa to work alongside club legend Nestroy Kizito.

The club still remained inconsistent with average performances.

Their last game of the season against Nyamityobora at Namboole Stadium is envisaged as one that will bring back confidence to the fans.

Since they are already safe away from being relegated, SC Villa will approach the match cautiously without pressure.

There is a rumour that head coach Douglas Bamweyana could be on the exit door at the club but Mugerwa has been available to conduct the training sessions since their 2-1 home loss to Tooro United at Namboole Stadium.
