The Uganda Premier League will have a lone fixture when SC Villa take on Bright Stars at Mandela National Stadium in Namboole on Wednesday, February 6. 

Both teams, however, will be going in with a fight as they have been struggling in the league with SC Villa going four games without a win while Bright Stars have not won any since December 1, 2018.

The hosts could possibly still be without a number of their new signings due to licence issues with reports that many will be left out due to limited spaces within the team.

Returning John Adriko is ruled out due to a knock he suffered last week in training according to the club but the good news is the return of Joseph Ssemujju and Pius Wangi in the squad.

Nelson Senkatuka returned to his goalscoring form with a strike in the draw against Onduparaka at home last week and he along with Brian Kayanja will be the main players to trouble the hosts’ backline manned by another prodigal son, Asuman Alishe.

SC Villa will hope their decent record against Fred Kajoba’s side also works in their favour.

The 16-time league champions have lost only once to Bright Stars in eleven league meetings winning six of them.

Maximum points for Douglas Bamweyana’s charges will see them overtake Maroons and move to 12th on the log.
