SC Villa lost to BUL and ultimately failed to build on their impressive point picked away from Wankulukuku against Express FC at Wankulukuku last Saturday.
Against BUL, they played like a team away from home judging by the fact that BUL had more supporters in the stadium than the home team Villa.
It was their first match at Njeru having played the opening two at Kavumba in Wakiso.
Today, they will hope to make better of home advantage when they host an Onduparaka side that blows hot and cold.

Onduparaka have only managed to beat Villa once in their previous five meetings in all competitions. Villa have won thrice and a stalemate has been recorded once.
Petros Koukouras will have to negotiate the tie without suspended forward Oscar Mawa who saw red in the defeat to BUL.
Midfielder Ali Bayo has also not made the match squad after failing to recover on time from the injury sustained against BUL.
Ronald Sekiganda and Goffin Oyirwoth will be called upon to fill the void left by Bayo and Mawa.
Left sided defender Joseph Kafumbe is in line to bounce to the starting lineup to take up the position that Fred Agandu had occupied in the previous two matches.
For Onduparaka, captain Mohammed Shaban is a major doubt but he may be subjected to a late fitness test.
Onduparaka have a massive opportunity of leaping up to 5th on the log, should they manage to take all three points off Villa.
The hosts can only close in on the top half of the log.
