For a number of years, KCCA F.C vs SC Villa has been a one sided fixture with the home side walking away with the bragging rights. From the past 5 seasons that is from 2014/15 SC Villa has managed to salvage 2 points from a visit to Lugogo with The Kasasiro boys winning thrice with the most recent encounter ending in a 4-2 win to the home side.
One point separates both sides with SC Villa at 27points in 3rd position and KCCA F.C with 26points in 4th place. In the fourth of their rescheduled fixtures, the Kasasiro boys will be looking at not blowing away their second chance of going third on the Uganda Premier League table in a space of 3 days after an infamous loss away at Kakyeka Stadium, a game in which the Head Coach Mike Mutebi was not on the touchline.
KCCA F.C Head Coach is expected to return to the touchline to that he leads his Kasasiro Boys army as they look to inflict a loss onto the Visitors’ scorecard for the first time since match day one.
KCCA F.C players have more experience in regards to this fixture as compared to the current crop of players at SC Villa. The “Council” duo Allan Kyambadde and Nicholas Kasozi will look to haunt their former Bosses if called upon by the gaffer at anytime during the game.

The Nsambya based side’s camp has been boosted by the return of Head Coach Edwardo Kaziba who was on National duty with the Crested Cranes during the CECAFA Women Championship which was held in Tanzania.
On his return, in an interview with the club news portal, Kaziba said that his squad is fully fit and ready to engage the current task at hand.
“The boys are ready for the game and they’re aware of its importance. The camp is in high spirits and we are looking forward to a good game”
On the injuries that the club might have “Everyone is fit and ready for the game. We have no injuries whatsoever. One or two players had a slight scare but they have been given a clean bill of health by the medical team. The squad is complete.”
Asked if he thought that his side are good enough to win the league this season, “It is very possible but that’s not our focus right now. We take each game at a time and hope to accumulate as many points as possible, that’s all. But yes, winning the league is possible.”
The Jogoos will be looking at avoiding defeat as they round up their first round of the 2019/20 season which to many’s earlier expectations has been a great surprise and success.
Many thought SC Villa at this time would be languishing down in the relegation but the team has put up some exciting performances.
Some dark clouds of their previous visits to Lugogo may be haunting them but the Jogoos will be looking forward to bringing a stronger fighting spirit this time round.
