Stanbic Uganda Cup: Stars, SC Villa collide again
Sports Club Villa and Bright Stars meet for the second time inside four days. The two drew 1-1 in Mwererwe on Saturday in a Premier League game but will play on Tuesday in a round of 32 games in the Stanbic branded Uganda Cup.
The Jogoos, a nine-time cup, winner will be seeking to enhance their chances of winning a double this season.
They host the match at Wankulukuku after the management decided to shift to reduce on the after-effects of a long trip to their home in Masaka with a trip to Arua this weekend in their schedule.
Brights Stars are without their head coach Fred Kajoba who is on a three-week high-level coaching course in America. His assistant Paul Kiwanuka will continue to guide the team.
Kiwanuka is well aware of their tight schedule both in the league and cup but has promised to improve on their performance and eliminate Villa on Tuesday.
“This week is very tough for the boys. We have two important fixtures against Sc Villa and Masavu. We have planned well for them as we have a very good squad. [In the last game,] We controlled the game but never utilized our chances. That has to change [Tuesday] in the cup because it’s a one-off with no second chances,” said Kiwanuka.
