Brian Nkuubi came off the bench to score the winner from a contentious free kick to send the Venoms into their fourth Cup final with a slim 1-0 aggregate over the Jogoos.

“In the game, we were better for the first twenty minutes,” admitted Da Costa. “The game was divided. We had a lot of possession in the first half but we played in our own half,” he continued.

“SC Villa Jogoo was better than us in the second half and we were a little fortunate but that’s football.

They face KCCA FC in the final of the cup at Bukedea on Saturday and the Portuguese has promised to shake up things a little.

“The two teams are completely differently,” he said in comparison between KCCA and SC Villa. “We have played against them (KCCA) twice this season and we shall review the games and come up with the right game plan,” he added.
