This was Villa’s first defeat in three games after a refreshingly solid start, given the troubles they have been through in recent years. The test for this largely youthful side, second on table with seven points, is how they bounce from this defeat. Listen up guys, say Arua Hill Across in the West Nile, Arua Hill are not even taking any notice of the noise in Kampala.

Great crowd vibes KCCA players were not to miss out either, welcoming Vipers to feel the feel the Kasasiro Boys felt in 2018 when they made the group stage and reminding the Venoms that they were indeed in unchartered territory. The fans were even in a more ‘fighting’ mood, hyping and talking up last Saturday’s StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) clash between hosts KCCA and reigning champions Vipers at MTN Omondi Stadium so much you didn’t want to be anywhere else on D-day. About an hour to kickoff and fans had packed the two sets of kirussia to capacity.
Bul watch from above as KCCA poke VipersWhat you need to know: The table leaders, Bul, refuse to cede any territory, KCCA remind Vipers they run this town as the Venoms concede first goal in six matches in all competitions, and Arua Hill just do not know how to lose a football match So, the two teams that made the whole of last week about them being the only Ugandan clubs to make the Caf Champions League group stage, since the format started in 1997, finally met up on Saturday to further feed their egos. Vipers SC players, who were still revelling in eliminating five-time African champions, DRC’s TP Mazembe, from the Champions League humorously trolled KCCA on social media, warning the Lugogo side that they were next.
By kickoff you had only peeping space. Mato, Okello stand out Rogers Mato’s sixth minute headed goal settled the noisy neighbours squabble as KCCA sucked the sting out of the Venom in the 1-0 victory, but to suggest the match itself provided the sparkle the build-up promised would be a stretch. Both coaches started with an extra defender to help out in midfield but it was Denis Iguma, Ashraf Mugume and Moses Waiswa that upstaged the rather less creative Hilary Mukundane, Mavin Youngman, Olivier Osomba in the middle of the park.

However, Byekwaso feels both teams have equal chance of winning and all he wants is his side maintain the current form. “We want to go all out and maintain the current form we have had this season, ” he started. “We know Villa have some young lads that are good on the ball and we have prepared well for them. This is a derby and games like these are never easy. Travis Mutyaba shields the ball away from Ivan Okello Credit: John Batanudde “So much anticipation and the magnitude of the game sometimes comes into play.
And when they broke forward, it was the rejuvenated and impressive Allan Okello, creator of Mato’s goal with a poised delivery, the scorer himself and Tshishungu Kankonde that probed more intently. Bright Anukani did offer some more bite when he came on for Youngman, one of his delicious deliveries headed wide by Livingstone Mulondo, but the visitors' initiatives going forward showed why they have not scored in the last four games in all competitions. KCCA were far from a polished article, but they were hungrier ones. They had a job to bounce back from the 3-1 defeat to Arua Hill and did it professionally by scoring and keeping their first clean sheet after conceding five in the opening two games.

Uganda Premier League Match Preview: SC Villa vs KCCAMorley Byekwaso | Credit: John Batanudde Saturday December 18, 2021Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru 3pm Morley Byekwaso has played down accusations that KCCA are clear favourites as they head to Njeru to face rivals SC Villa on Saturday. KCCA sit top of the log with 26 points, dropped only four points and haven’t failed to score in any fixture this season and remain the only unbeaten side so far. Charles Lwanga Credit: John Batanudde In comparison, SC Villa are 12th on the 16-team table with only 9 points from as many games played and have only picked two wins.
Coach Morley Byekwaso’s boys sit fourth on six points after three matches, while Roberto Oliviera’s Venoms are 14th with one point from two games. The match was also not helped by some poor officiating from referee George Olemu, who - for example - failed to punish Vipers Murushid Jjuuko’s deliberate handball to stop a pass into his penalty area, and Mukundane’s incessant shirt tags among several questionable calls.
