FUFA Super League (Today, 4:30pm)

Express v Masaka (Wankulukuku)

Bright Stars v Entebbe (Nakivubo)

KCCA v URA (Lugogo)

Kira Young v Simba (Namboole)

Police v SCVU (Kavumba)

CRO v SC Villa (Mbale)

AFTER thrashing lowly Proline 4-0 last Friday, KCCA return to FUFA Super League action today well aware that they will have to win at least three of their remaining four games to retain the title.

KCCA coach George Nsimbe will be aware of that when his side hosts URA FC at Lugogo this afternoon.

Leaders KCCA (on 52 points), with a game in hand already have the advantage over second-placed SCVU (50), third-placed URA (49) and Vipers (47) in fourth place.

On-form striker Herman Wasswa and attacking partner Tony Odur are two members of the team that Nsimbe will count on for results.

Wasswa has scored five goals so far in the league while Odur is top scorer with 15 goals. 

The return of midfielder Ivan Ntege from injury will also strengthen the team.

Ntege returned from a three week injury absence and scored a brace against Proline.

A win for coach Paul Nkata’s URA side will send them joint top with KCCA although the Lugogo side has a better goal difference. In the first round meeting, KCCA beat URA 3-2 in Lugazi

In one of the other games, SCVU will battle Police in a match where victory will thrust SCVU into the league lead if URA beats KCCA.
