UGANDA: Villa aim to arrest slump

Mike Mutebi will hope all goes smoothly when SC Villa welcome KCC to Nakivubo in the Bell Super League today following a strenuous series of events on and off the pitch.

It has been a nervy situation at Villa Park since the club fans were adjudged to have pelted stones at players and officials during a Uganda Cup game against URA in Lugazi.It has not been helped by the Jogoos’ poor run of form that has seen their three-match winning streak in March- April diminish and a two-match losing sequence to Proline and Simba come in.

This has seen fans hold placards at matches calling for Mutebi and club head of football strategy Joseph Kanaaba to quit. On Thursday two of the radical fans were arrested by police as they attempted to interfere with the club’s friendly with Bombo United at Villa Park and Villa were due to address a news conference on the subject yesterday.

Well, Mutebi would rather fans let him do his job, just like he did seeing off lower side Bombo United 8-0 in that friendly. He will hope his boys take that form into the game against KCC, who - considering their display in the 1-1 draw with URA on Tuesday - look a much improved side.

"We played better and gave a good account of ourselves," said KCC interim coach Morley Byekwaso of Tuesday’s display.

"We showed what we are made of. The courage was there, determination was there. But we must improve on our scoring touch."

SC Villa and KCC have 24 league titles between themselves but are certain they will not be adding to that tally this season. KCC are fifth on 35 points while Villa, who were boosted by three points and three goals after the USL penalized Fire Masters for absconding during a player strike in March, are now in seventh on 34.

Villa will miss defender Lawrence Kasadha and KCC Joseph Ochaya, who are away with the under 20s in Mozambique. The reverse fixture ended goalless.

In other games, Maroons coach Asaph Mwebaze will hope his side return to winning ways after losing their last two when they host winless Utoda at Luzira.

"Utoda gave us a difficult time in the first round though we won 1-0, but we should be able to do the job,"said Mwebaze.

Maroons will miss Alex Tuliraba and George Abege, also in Mozambique.
