SC Villa will be all out to out their bad run away to KCCA on Sunday when they visit the Kasasiro at the MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo.

The Jogoos have lost six of their previous eight visits to KCCA drawing the other two in the process.

Both teams failed to pick maximum points from their previous outings with KCCA losing 2-0 to URA while Villa were held at home by rivals Express.

Morley Byekwaso says the defeat to URA is now behind the boys and focus will be on beating Villa who have a chance to leapfrog the Kasasiro if they pick a rare win at Lugogo.

“We are fully focused on winning the game on Sunday. We face a physical side in Villa and we have to manage the game very well if we are to get three points,” said Byekwaso.

“We want to revenge against them because they beat us in the first round.”

Edward Kaziba, the man in the opposing dugout is also confident of turning things at a venue they never win.

“My team is in very good shape. Since we finished the Express game, all our focus has been on this game,” he said.

“We beat KCCA in the first round but last season they beat us in Lugogo. It’s something we look forward to changing tomorrow.”

Team News: KCCA have Brian Aheebwa, Gift Ali and Musa Ramathan back in contention for a place on the team but are likely to miss Ashraf Mugume who got a knock in defeat to URA.

Villa have Amir Kakomo and goalkeeper Meddie Kibirige back after missing the Express game through suspension but are without left back Andrew Kiwanuka and Benson Muhindo through injury.

On form Charles Lwanga will turn guns against his childhood club and will surely be one of the key players to watch for fifth placed KCCA who are on 30 points against 6th placed Jogoos.
