Vipers SC head coach Fred Kajoba is confident that his side have the quality and character to overcome SC Villa as the two sides set to face off.
Vipers SC will host SC Villa in a mouth watering StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter on Wednesday March 10 at St Mary’s stadium Kitende in a must-win tie for the Venoms.
The league defending champions enter this game after a 1-0 defeat at Mbarara City FC which brought to an end their 12-game unbeaten run in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League this season.
However, according to Kajoba, his charges are now more than ready to register a win against their nemesis SC Villa.
“We know they will come with a lot of enthusiasm to face us, but we have the quality and character to get the best out of this game. We hope the boys can rise to the occasion,” Kajoba noted.
Vipers are seeking a seventh consecutive home win this season as they command a 100% record out of the previous six league ties against Kitara FC, MYDA FC, Police FC, UPDF FC, BUL FC and Soltilo Bright Stars FC respectively.
SC Villa on the other hand, have registered only one victory over Kyetume FC while they have drawn three times against BUL FC, Wakiso Giants FC and Busoga United FC, suffering two defeats against URA FC & Express FC.
When the two sides met at St Mary’s stadium Kitende last season, Vipers lost 1-0 to the Jogoos courtesy of Bashir Mutanda’s strike.
SC Villa will be looking for a third consecutive victory at St Mary’s stadium Kitende having won the previous two 3-1 and 1-0 respectively.
This will be the 31st meeting between the two clubs with Vipers having registered 12 Wins, 11 draws and 7 Losses.
