SC Villa is eager to secure their first victory of the season as they prepare to host the in-form @Nec_Fc at Wankulukuku this Friday afternoon.
This upcoming match marks the first meeting between the two teams in the Uganda Premier League (@UPL). The Jogoos, despite losing one match and drawing another in the early stages of the season, maintain a positive outlook on the game. Their opponents of the day, @Nec_Fc, have enjoyed a winning streak in all their previous matches.
SC Villa will be without forward Charles Lwanga, who is sidelined due to an ankle injury. However, Center Back Masembe and Left Back Kafumbe are nearing the final stages of their recovery and may be available soon. The rest of the squad is fit and ready to play, with the exceptions being the long-term absentees Denis Ojara and Tabu Oryem. The Jogoos are determined to bounce back and secure their first victory of the season in this exciting encounter with @Nec_Fc.
“We’re amped up for the game against @Nec_Fc; it’s the challenge that makes football thrilling. Our prep’s been intense; Coach Stojanovic is pushing us hard, honing strengths and fixing weaknesses. We’ve dissected our opponent’s tactics for a game plan. Expect a winning mentality and some surprises on the field. To our SC Villa fans, your support fuels us; we’re playing our hearts out to make you proud. Stay with us, let’s chase victory together!” – Midfielder Elvis Ngonde.
Coach Dusan Stojanovic shared his thoughts, stating,
“We may not have had the smoothest start to the league, but our dedication to improvement is relentless, and we’re getting better with each passing minute. We’ve meticulously studied our next opponent, understanding their strengths and weaknesses, and we’re determined to put on a show that’ll bring joy to the entire Jogoo family. @Nec_Fc have kicked off the @UPL impressively with two consecutive wins, setting the stage for a challenging match. Nevertheless, we have the confidence and readiness to face whatever comes our way.”
