Team News

Midfielder Nicholas Kasozi has recovered from sickness and is part of the squad that will face SC Villa

Coach Mike Mutebi’s charges will be boosted by the return of Allan Okello, Mustafa Kizza, and an old boy of Villa Nicholas Kasozi who has recovered in time to face his former side. The trio missed the previous game due to fatigue, injury, and sickness respectively.

Simon Serunkuma and Erisa Sekisambu are other former Villa players who could feature in the game.

Teenage forward Sam Ssenyonjo is likely to lead KCCA’s line after his impressive form that has seen him score two goals in two games.

Jackson Nunda, Peter Magambo, Jurua Hassan, Sadam Juma, and Sadat Anaku are ruled out due to injury.

Erisa Sekisambu is in contention to face his former club SC Villa

In the pre-match presser, Manager Mike Mutebi had this to say;

This is a traditional rivalry and one of the biggest if not the biggest in the country. We expect them to come hungry at us and it is upon us to try to make it difficult for them to play here. We have Okello, Kizza and Kasozi back and that is a big boost for the squad ahead of such a huge game.

I am happy for Sam Ssenyonjo who has taken his chance and used it well. He has scored two goals in two games. I will keep my faith in him and a few more youngsters like Kafumbe, Anaku
