KCCA in a must win situation to maintain pressure on table leaders.
KCCA vs Express Fc .
Venue :Star Times Stadium
On Tuesday KCCA fc had a chance of beating table leaders Sports Club Vipers but they failed the test and saw the game end goalless, another chance is here today as they look to put that disappointment behind them and close the gap on Vipers at the top when they host old time rivals Express FC at Star Times stadium Lugogo.
After Tuesday draw ,Mike Mutebi’s side remained second on the table five points behind the venoms but with the leaders losing 3-1 to third placed URA FC yesterday, today’s match could be massive in Kasasiro boys tittle challenge.
KCCA fc welcomes back Julius Poloto,Kato Nemeyimana,Sadat Anaku and Kizza Bukenya but with John Revita and Gift Ali not fully fit, Sam Senyonjo still having licence issues, Mutebi will have to manoeuvre his side for this fixture.
At the press conference Mutebi said “We will take the game so serious given its magnitude and history around it. It is a derby and derbies are won by the team that shows the biggest character on the day” . He went on to say that they needed to win to keep on closing the gap.
Mike Mutyaba is likely to miss this tie after the death of his brother.
Meanwhile Express fc come into this game full of confidence after two consecutive wins over Tooro United and Wakiso Giants, Victories that have seen them climb up the ladder to 10th position five points above red zone.
They will be boosted by the return to form of Frank Kalanda and Frank Ssenyondo who seem to have found his scoring boots under Waswa Bbosa.
KCCA fc won the reverse fixture 3-1 at Kabaka Kyabagu stadium. In the last 21 meetings KCCA has won 11 times and they have shared spoils on 7 occasions with Express fc winning the other 4 fixtures.
