SC Villa midfielder Abdallah Salim is confident his side will earn all the available points when they travel to the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru to take on Busoga United in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Tuesday.
The Jogoos come into this fixture after earning a hard-fought 3-2 win over struggling Kitara FC at Bombo last Saturday.
A game which further exposed Villa’s frailties especially at the back, but showed the character that lies within the squad at least according to Salim.
And instead of focussing on the negatives, Salim would rather pick the positives as the victory lifted them into sixth on the log and another win which will be the club’s first this season could see them go as high as second.
“We badly need that win against Busoga in order to continue our surge up the helm of the league table,” Salim told Football256 in an interview.
“A win not only gives us three points but also boosts our away games morale in the coming fixtures because we have not yet earn an away win yet” he added.
Having lost twice and drawn twice in all the four games played away from home, Edward Kaziba’s side will have a lot of work to do in order to gain all the points against their boggy side who they are yet to win against on the road.
“We are prepared and motivated to win the game against Busoga because the boys have put in a lot as far as preparations are concerned and I believe the hard work and commitment will pay off,” Salim further said.
“As a team we are all mentally and psychologically boosted after registering a win in our most recent game against Kitara and I know we shall build on that to keep winning.”
The 20-year-old forward greatly impressed in the game they last played away from home against Wakiso Giants when he scored a brace after being introduced in the second half to salvage a point for the 16-time record champions.
Busoga United come into this game after holding a goalless draw against Mbarara City at the Kakyeka Stadium on Saturday.
Abbey Kikomeko’s charges continue to search for their maiden win of the season after managing four losses and four draws in the eight games played so far.
