Some of the greatest clubs world over have hit lows and bounced back, Argentina’s River Plate and Italy’s Juventus paint a better picture.
The same can’t be said of SC Villa especially if the same fate happened to the 16-time Uganda Premier League record champions.
On Tuesday, SC Villa who are 13th with 27 points and hoovering over the relegation zone host 14th placed Ndejje Lions who are just two points behind the Nsambya based side.
Douglas Bamweyana’s charges know anything less than a win would certainly drag them into the red zone.
The Nsambya based side who picked up a point in the derby away to arch rivals Express in their last league game are hoping Bashir Mutanda comes along with his scoring boots. The club’s leading scorer on 13 has not found the back of the net in the last two league outings.
Ndejje meanwhile are in a buoyant mood having dispatched Nyamityobora 3-1 in their last league game at home. Isaac Kisujju who notched a brace in the 3-1 win over Nyamityobora insists they will fight till the end.
“We played well in the last league game which was good, we however are taking each remaining game as a final and are now looking at the next game. We are going to fight on until the end,” the midfielder told www.football-256.com.
“We have had mixed results from the start but we continue fighting,” he added.
A win for Villa will push them to 12th on the 16-team log while Ndejje can only improve their 14th position if they won and in the process beat their goal difference that currently stands at -17.
Elsewhere, Kirinya Jinja SS host already relegated Paidha Black Angles at the Might Arena. Kirinya are pushing for a top 8 finish as a win here will push them to 6th level on points with Tooro United.
