By Sam Kawalya & Norman Katende SC Villa v Simba Tomorrow Express v Mbarara Namboole stadium FOR two years, Mike Mutebi and Moses Basena worked and plotted together at Simba. But when SC Villa meets Simba in the Nile Special Super League at Namboole stadium today, the two youthful coaches will be plotting for each other’s downfall. Basena, who left Simba early this season and whose antics on the bench are still the same as Mike’s, will combine with Micho Sredojevich as the champions look to retain their unbeaten run. Micho is still fuming from Sunday’s encounter with Express which resulted in an injury for Philip Sozi, Hakim Magumba and Nestroy Kizito and only painfully focusses on today’s game. “Simba is one of the best teams. We know all about them and they know all about us, but we can find power to overcome them,” the Yugoslav said. Mutebi is eager to see Simba become the first club to take maximum points from Villa. But he knows that an away encounter with the champions and league leaders is not a trip to the movies. The Simba coach notes with concern that Villa’s game has improved of recent. “They have improved their players’ confidence,” Mutebi said. “There is that man (Morley) Byekwaso who has given them dimension. He is a catalyst in their thinking department and our main aim is to shut him out.” Nakivubo stadium After being held to a one all draw by Arua Garage at the same venue a week ago, Express, who won a friendly against KCC and lost in another against Villa, since have to work extra hard to win the trust of their fans. The absence of Andrew Mukasa has lasted long enough for it to lose its news status. But if any club can do without a player of Mukasa’s class, it is Express. Hassan Mubiru, who reportedly signed a new contract with Express, is a handfull for any defense and Henry Kakooza got back to his scoring ways in that ill-tempered friendly against Villa Sunday.
