Sports Club Villa will need a mere draw against Sudan's Al Khartoum Al Watani on Saturday to qualify for the next round of the 2016 CAF Orange Confederations Cup.


The blues who have been missing out of continental football for over 10 years won the first leg 1-0 in Khartoum and are hoping that the home crowd will motivate them to win the return leg at the Nakivubo Stadium today.


Ibrahim Kirya, the Villa coach told URN on Friday evening that they will not take the opponents for granted because of the first leg result, but will make sure they have even a better game and win by a better margin.


"We had some good chances to score more goals in Khartoum, but hope we can score these chances on Saturday in-front of our fans. It will be very important to put up a good display because these are the things bring back fans to Stadiums," added Kirya.

Midfielder Taddeo Lwanga who netted the sole goal in Khartoum said he is eager to knock in more goals. "It is also good to keep scoring at continental level because it gives me chance to build my profile," he added.


Former KCCA FC player Micheal Birungi will be one of the star players featuring for the Sudan Premier League side.


In-case SC Villa progress to the next stage they will face the Jeshi La Kujenga Uchumi (JKU) SC. The Zanzibar team earned a walk over after Gaborone United (Botswana) pulled out because of financial difficulties.
