Azam Uganda Premier League: Super Friday as giants; SC Villa & Express face – off


Friday, 30th October 2015 Sports Club Villa  Vs Express F.C

At 4:00 p.m – Live on AZAM T.V & 102.1 FUFA f.m

Nakivubo Stadium

The place to be on Friday, 30th October 2015 is none other than Nakivubo stadium as two fierce rivals, Sports Club Villa and Express F.C lock horns in the Azam Uganda Premier League.

In the general fans’ stands and on the field of play, it will be a clash of two parallel colors – Red or Blue.

Whereas both clubs are currently on different wave-lengths in as far as in-house stability and form is concerned, that will count for nothing because time over and again, the battles between SC Villa and Express are often too close to call.

Express F.C won their previous league match in convincing fashion – triumphing 4-0 over BUL F.C at Mutesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku meanwhile SC Villa succumbed to the giant killing antics of  Soana F.C, falling 2-1 at Kavumba recreational stadium.

The Jogoos approach the game minus the services of their former Spanish head coach, Antonio Flores who was relieved of his duties a few days ago.

In the prodigal ‘old boy’, Ibrahim Kirya, SC Villa is expected to quickly put their house in order and stage a spirited display against an on -colour Express side.

Perhaps, SC Villa  has an injury concern for their left footed dribbling winger, Martin Kizza and will most likely miss the services of towering defender, Denis Otim, who is at Kyambogo University finalizing his studies.

The good news is that the rest of the players are readily available and have the potential to trouble Express.

From play maker, Robert Achema, goal keeper Stephen Odong, left back Isaac Muleme, strikers Karim Ndugwa and Umar Kasumba, the Jogoos have a key player in each of the departments.

Enter the on-fire Express F.C – Coaches Alex Gitta and Wasswa Bbosa have formed a potent partnership bonded on earth but mended in Heaven.

The duo have assembled an array of stars that will make any team on the opposition tremble for obvious reasons.

CHAN Cranes Strikers Tonny Odur and Caesar Okhuti remain the main hope for goals with a steady fast assured supply of balls from the middle of the pack via the burly Sulaiman Mutyaba.

In the backline, another CHAN Cranes player, Ayub Kizza has quickly recovered from a head injury suffered in the CHAN qualification match against Sudan, will provide the protective shield alongside Veteran Issa Lumu from the usually suspect goal keeper, Martin Elungati.

Elungati will be facing his former pay masters in a match that will provide the necessary plat form to test his character and will power.

Last season, the two games between the arch-rivals ended prematurely with aspects of fans’ violence at Mityana and Mutesa II Stadium.

On both fronts, SC Villa walked home scot-free with the six points in the bag after it was discovered rowdy Express fans caused the abandonment in both cases.

This time round, with the club fans educated about the spirit of fair play, a tranquil atmosphere is expected to grant the match a good ending.

Will it be the Jogoos or the Red Army?

Let us all throng Nakivubo stadium in Zillions.
