When NEC’s leader, Hussein Mbalangu, faces off against SC Villa this Friday at Wankulukuku Stadium, there won’t be any special treatment. Mbalangu, who once coached and played for SC Villa, is determined to win.
NEC, the current leaders of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League, have had an impressive run with six points. They secured a 1-0 victory against Mbarara City and a dominant 5-0 win over Busoga United at Lugogo.
Now, Mbalangu aims to set a high standard by taking on Dusan Stojanovic’s SC Villa, who have struggled to find success. Villa recently suffered a home loss to Kitara and managed only a 1-1 draw with Maroons at Luzira, earning them just one point.
