SC Villa will look to brighten their chances of winning the Uganda Premier League title with victory over relegation threatened Kira Young today (Tuesday) at Namboole stadium.

With Vipers currently top on 63 points, two ahead of their only title challengers Villa. The two face off at Nakivubo on Friday in the penultimate game of the season.

Vipers have, however, played a game more than Villa as of Tuesday; although the two go into the Friday must-win game level on matches played.

That will be because Villa will have played their game in hand against Kira Young on Tuesday (today), Kira coming off a 1-0 defeat to Lweza FC that keeps them just above relegation zone.

However, Steven Bogere’s’ side are still battling the drop with just three points above relegation on 28 points with three games to go.

“We are fighting for survival, and they have their title ambitions,” said Bogere. “It’s a tough game for both but we’re ready,” he added.

A 1-1 draw with SCVU last Friday had seen Villa relinquish top spot to Vipers after leading for just three days.

“It is a point we earned because we came from a goal down and had a bit of fatigue as a result of fixture congestion,” coach Kirya said after the match.

Only victory over Kira will suffice if Villa is stay on course for a first league title since 2004, going into their clash with Vipers on Friday.
