SC Villa vs Ndejje University, Namboole (Live)

Kirinya Jinja SS vs Paidha, Jinja

The relegation battle talk continues this Tuesday afternoon with faded record 16-time champions SC Villa hosting premier league debutants Ndejje University at Namboole stadium. With only four games to go, the game is vital in Jogoos’ survival run that are coming off a 1-1 away draw against fellow struggling rivals Express. The Villa Park side is just a place off relegation; sitting 13th with 27 points, 3 above 14th placed Ndejje. The visitors come off a convincing 3-1 home win over fellow relegation threatened Nyamityobora last timeout and will hope to condemn Jogoos to 10th loss of the campaign to level on points. Villa has less goal difference deficit (4) compared to Ndejje (17) which makes it hard for the Luwero-based University side. The two sides played to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture but Villa may be boosted by the expected return of club lead scorer Bashir Mutanda after missing Express tie. Elsewhere, relegated Paidha Black Angels make a hard trip to Jinja where they will play 9th placed Kirinya Jinja SSS, who come off a 1-0 loss to BUL in the Jinja derby.
