Villa, Express eye New Year wins



The Bell Super League first batches of games in 2013 get well underway this weekend with giants SC Villa and Express both eying victories in the New Year.

Three games are lined up on Saturday with the 16-time champions – Villa – travelling to Bombo for a clash against army side Simba, and reigning kings – Express - hosting Water at Nakivubo. Police will, meanwhile, be facing Masaka at Luzira.

Against Simba, Mike Mutebi’s Villa will hope to recover from a reality-checking 2-2 draw against Police in their last encounter if they are to maintain pressure on leaders Maroons, who they face next Wednesday.

Mutebi will once again count on Hood Kaweesa and Kiwalabye Dalaus’ goals if they are to overcome a resilient Simba side. The pair have seven goals between them so far.

The Jogoos, second on 17 points, currently trail the leaders by five points and could close that gap to two with victory.

Simba will also go into this encounter with much purpose as well. Victory for the army side coupled with Express failing to win against Water will see them go second on 18 points.

Ibrahim Buwembo’s Express could also go second depending on the Villa-Simba result if the Red Eagles muster victory over Charles Ayiekoh’s Water.

Express, who will count of lead scorer with four goals – Bright Haguma – for inspiration, are third on 15 points while Water are ninth with as many points.
