New log leaders SC Villa will keep top spot at least until match day 22 if they beat visiting Soltilo Bright Stars on return to Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku.

The Jogoos have played five fixtures in Lira due to Fufa Disciplinary panel sanctions imposed on them in the defeat to Wakiso Giants.

They return with more reason to beat Asaph Mwebaze’s men as a win will see them open a four-point gap at least until KCCA play Blacks Power in Lira the following day.

Jackson Magera’s men haven’t lost in nine games and sit top with 37 points despite playing more games than the Kasasiro.

They face a side desperate to bounce back from back to back defeats in Bright Stars but Villa will feel confident of edging the contest given their current form.

Charles Bbaale, David Owori and Ivan Sserubiri who returned from injury in the 1-0 win over Busoga United will be crucial for the hosts who won the reverse fixture 1-0 in Kavumba courtesy Bbaale’s winner.

However, their defence led by Gift Fred must be alert to stop Sam Ssenyonjo, the hard working Emmanuel Loki and skipper Nelson Ssenkatuka.
