Uganda’s historical club, SC Villa make a short trip to Wakiso to face hosts Wakiso Giants looking for a win to end worries of the relegation.
The Jogoos come into today’s fixture after a defeat of a 3-1 against URA on the Sunday 27th March 2022 and are 12th on the table with 22 points, only two above relegation.
They take on the purple sharks today who just lost 2-1 to Onduparaka in their previous away game of match day 22 of the Uganda premier league.
“Regardless of what is happening there, for us we take the game as one against a giant club not only in Ugandan football but on the continent,” coach Alex Gitta.
“The mentality of the lads is that we have a tough game against a very good side and must do everything right if we are to get all three points which is our target especially when we play at home” said Gitta
“We recognise that we are coming from 1-2 loss to Onduparaka but by the time we played them, we had played close to five games in a space of 15 days which brought in fatigue but we have recovered well.”he added
The two sides have met three times with the Jogoos winning once, losing and drawing as many.
Wakiso giants are without the services of Joshua Lubwama and Ibrahim Kasule through suspension and injury respectively Tom Masiko, Pius Kaggwa and Fahad Kawooya could return.
