After the precious first leg 2-nil away victory, Sports Club Villa head coach Sula Kato seem to have a leg placed in the finals of Uganda's second prestigious competition Kakungulu Cup.


"Most of the work was done at Nakivubo. We only need to get an early goal to cancel any of their hope," noted Kato who took the mantle at Villa Park early this season.

The Nsambya based side is further boasted by the return of first choice goalie Yassin Mugabi and his under study Hannington Kalyesubula. The duo missed the first leg battling with malaria which paved way for third choice custodian Odongokara to take charge.

To add salt in the wound, Bunamwaya's tactician Jackson Mayanja will be missing the services of key defender Mohammad Zziwa serving a red card. This is in addition to his long list of key players in the sick bay including striker Yuda Mugalu, Mike Mutyaba and Edward Ssali.

Nevertheless, Mayanja cautions Villa not to take Bunamwaya for granted. "Soccer is soccer, anything can happen," warned the former KCC FC soccer guru.

While Mayanja will keep his eyes on striker Samson Ceaser Okhuti, Villa is confident that with the sparkling form of Andrew Nkurunungi playing along side the team's master planner Stephen Bengo, scoring can't be their problem. Nkurunungi has scored six goals in the previous three games.

Else where in the other Semi Final , Uganda Revenue Authority sort out them selves with Uganda Police on the Fools day at Namboole stadium.URA will blame them selves should they fail to qualify for the finals after missing open chances in the first leg.

Midfielder Tony Mawejje, hit a wood work twice while Henry Kiseka missed several open chances.
