SC Villa Welcome Blacks Power as Title Race Toughens


Title chasers SC Villa welcome Relegation-threatened Blacks Powers in a Uganda Premier League game at Wankulukuku.

Villa are third on the table, level on 49 points with Leaders Vipers and second-placed KCCA FC.

The two top teams have a better goal difference than Villa’s +7, and the Jogoos will have it in mind that the game against Blacks Power provides them with a chance to improve their goal difference.

And the fact that both KCCA and Vipers are on the road, the Jogoos will feel that they have an easier fixture on paper.

Rightly so, it’s also strong to note that Villa’s last game is also another home fixture against URA FC.

The Visitors on the other hand, Blacks Power, are second from the bottom with 23 points, four adrift of safety with two games to go.

A defeat at Wankulukuku will see Blacks Power relegated regardless of results from other games.

And it’s a huge mountain to climb for the Visitors who come into this fixture off the back of a 1-0 defeat against relegated Onduparaka.

Sheif Batte grabbed a late goal to hand SC Villa a 1-0 win against Blacks Power in the reverse fixture.
