SC Villa will face Zanzibars Jeshi La Kujenga Uchumi JKU SC in the first leg of a 2016 CAF Orange Confederations Cup game on Saturday.

Sports Club Villa will face a tough test this afternoon when they take on Zanzibar's Jeshi La Kujenga Uchumi (JKU) SC in the first leg of a 2016 CAF Orange Confederations Cup game on Saturday.


The experience of former Cranes attacking midfielder Mike Sserumaga and Umar Kasumba will be very vital for the SC Villa team who are hungry to leave a mark in continental football after being out for over 10 years.


Head coach Ibrahim Kirya told URN on Saturday morning that they are going all out to attack the visitors from the start of the game because they need goals before the second leg in Zanzibar.


SC Villa ejected Sudan's Khartoum Al Watani in the preliminary round on a 2-0 goal aggregate. But facing a team from Zanzibar gives them a different test as the visitors are known to be very physical.


"We are here to mean business and it will be very important to get a win away from home before the return leg," said JKU SC striker Nassor Juma.


The Zanzibari side who finished second in their League last year reached the first round of the CAF Orange Confederations Cup after a walk over Gaborone United (Botswana) who pulled out because of financial difficulties.
