By Vision reporter SC Villa has worked on one basic strategy for the return leg match against Julius Berger - strike very early and then defend like the Italians. "We want to get an early goal and this would destabilise the Nigerians. We hope to have a tight defence," Villa coach Paul Hasule said after his final training session before the team leaves today for the return leg of their CAF champions league match. Villa will take a 1-0 lead to Lagos where ability to score goals will determine the team that makes it into the group stage of the most prestigious soccer tournament on the continent. Hasule said midfielder Hakim Magumba would be fit for Saturday's return leg at Moshood Abiola stadium, 40km outside Lagos. Midfielder Ronald Mugabi is a late inclusion on the Nigeria bound Villa squad. Villa jets out at 5.45am aboard a Kenya Airways plane. The Villa contingent to Lagos: H.Kalyesubula, J.Kayimba, J.Nestroy, R.Tumusiime, T.Batabaire, J.Kidega, H.Mawa, H.Magumba, M.Sunguti, A.Mukasa, P.Ssozi, S.Tumwine, P.Musoke, D.Iga, A.Lusamukha, G.Kateregga, M.Sebalinga, R.Mugabi, E.Watson (skipper). Officials-Haruna Mawanda (leader of delegation), coach Paul Hasule, technical director-Geoff Hudson, physician-Nathan Wanaswa, chairman Franco Mugabe, vice-chairmen Omar Ahmed Mandela, Andrew Kasagga Zzimwe, Sam Tamale Kapeera and journalist Mike Arereng. r EXPRESS FC has handed defender Andy Lule an indefinite suspension for gross indiscipline. Club secretary Kavuma Kabenge told The New Vision yesterday that Lule had absconded from training. "Express has suspended Lule indefinitely. He will stay away without salary and allowances for gross acts of indiscipline," said Kabenge. The club executive led by chairman Godfrey Kirumira was due to meet last night to decide the fate of the five players chased by the Express fans known as 'Red Army'. George Ssemogerere, Ali Kitenda, Richard Kirumira, Issa Bin Mungu and Edward Kalungi were branded saboteurs. On sacked English coach Eddie May, Kabenge said: "The $1,000 cheque is ready and will be cashed in London by May. We want to hand over the house to the landlord." May, who is still in Kampala, said: "I have no ill feelings. I was just a victim of circumstances, but I want to be Express agent in England. I would help them market their players in future." Ends|
