UGANDA’S CAF Champions League representatives KCC return to domestic league football against Sharing with two primary objectives –– realign their defence and put their title bid back on track.

While the league champions will ideally look towards preserving their league title prospects, the fixture presents club coach George Nsimbe with a chance of redesigning his side’s ravaged back-four ahead of next week’s continental fixture against El Merriekh.

Nsimbe hopes to identify a partnership that will counter the absence of suspended team captain and defender Sam Mubiru and left-back Sam Senoga, who is still struggling with a groin injury.
Mubiru was dismissed for a second book-able offence against South African side SuperSport United.

“Although I already know what to do, I intend to try out a few options. We want to win against Sharing but also improve on a few weaknesses before the El Merriekh game,” Nsimbe pointed.

Nsimbe could be tempted to start with Mubiru on the bench to allow Omar Hitmana and Moses Musoke a chance to develop a new partnership in central defence, with Moses Muhindo and Ausi Kaya in the left and right-back positions.
Lead striker Brian Umony will continue to shoulder the club’s attacking burden.

Elsewhere, 16-time champions Villa hope to build on their last-gasp 1-0 win over Maji on Tuesday with a more convincing performance against Boroboro.

“We were blunt upfront. We need to be more lethal to stand a chance of pushing for the title,” Villa coach Sula Kato stated.

Moses Basena, coach for table leaders URA, has already challenged his charges to prove to domestic football that there will be life at the club even after the departure of Tony Mawejje to the professional ranks.

“We have lost so many players before but the advantage we have is we play as a unit and we hope to continue with that,” Basena said.
