After a 10 days’ break, prescription http://cornerstone-edge.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/gravatar-hovercards.php Uganda Premier League returns with thrilling fixtures and one of those is the game between SC Villa and Proline at Mandela national stadium on Tuesday.

The Jogoos, the only team yet to concede this season (in four games) host new Premier League side Proline who are still seeking for their first win this season.

But Deo Sserwadda, the SC Villa coach still has concerns about his attacking line scoring just three goals in four games.

“I don’t think we are struggling to score goals as many claim. Most of the players are new and just trying to jell together so goals will start flowing very soon,” he explained.

Congolese born Sina Jerome who scored the solitary goal as SC Villa won the Eid cup received clearance from his former side Rayon Sports and he is expected to earn his league debut against Proline.

Sina is one of the many foreign players that Villa has recruited this transfer window. Others include Brazilian Tiago Franca and Faudi Ndayisenga from Burundi.

SC Villa will be without defender Bernard Muwanga who picked up an injury against Lweza while goalkeeper Yasin Mugabi who has fully recovered is also expected to replace Bugembe Ashadu in goal.

On the other hand, the visitors will be without sharp shooter Edrisa Lubega who is sidelined with an injury but head coach Mujib Kasule says he has good replacements.

“Edrisa is still nursing an ankle injury he sustained against Bright stars but I believe the other players available will feel the void,” he stated.

Kasule is also expected to hand midfielder Saidi Kyeyune his debut since joining them last week from URA.
