SC Villa still in the hunt for first win in the Premier League

NAMBOOLE: Moses Basena is still searching for his first win as SC Villa coach after the Uganda Premier League strugglers drew in a frustrating goalless match with URA FC at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

Basena who took over in July this year from Wasswa Bbosa, needed his first win at home to prevent Villa crashing to the relegation battle after failing to give the club a single win since the season started.

SC Villa had open chances in the first 45 minutes in the game but their notable strikers were wasteful in front of the goal. The visitors were also unlucky and misused their scoring chances leading to a boring goalless draw.

Basena hoped for goals from his notable players like Joseph Semujju and Ambrose Kirya but the game was tough for his side since Semujju misused all the chances.

Basena, the former coach of Simba FC and Uganda Cranes was comfortable in a point, following a 1-3 defeat against Champions SC Vipers.

“It has not been an easy match with URA but we are going to continue training and improve everything as we correct our mistakes,” Basena said.

“I hate this season already and all the changes made by the club,” some SC Villa fans reacted after a frustrating draw against URA claiming that the departure of club president Eng. Ben Misaga and many skilled players weakened the club.

Basena’ Villa remained winless in five games of the season, and remains in a relegation battle with just three points.

In the other games played from different stadiums, Kirinya JSS drew 2-2 with Vipers, Maroons FC was beaten 2-1 by Bul FC, Police FC won Nyamityobora FC 2-1.
