KCCA v Onduparaka (1pm)
KCCA coach Mike Mutebi has asked his players up their performance ahead of today’s visit of Onduparaka in the Azam Uganda Premier League at StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo.
“We expect to play well this time and win. It’s important we win so that we can put our house in order. We have lost four points and we need to remedy the situation by winning,” stated Mutebi.
A scoring crisis is another challenge KCCA will need to work on before today’s game.
The defending champions have struggled to score goals ever since striker Geoffrey Sserunkuma left the club at the end of July and this has been evident in the two games KCCA has so far played in the league, scoring only one goal.
“The center forwards must start scoring, they have a responsibility to take away the chances that the midfielders create but on top of creating chances, we also expect the midfielders score goals” Mutebi added.
“We have no worries because we are creating the chances. If we weren’t creating the chances, we would be worried. The sole responsibility goes to the centre forwards, starting with Derrick Nsibambi, Patrick Kaddu and others,” he said.
Last season KCCA lost the first round tie 2-1 in Arua but avenged it with an emphatic 7-0 thrashing at home.
Elsewhere Fred Kajoba will be serving the second of his four match ban as Bright Stars face Mbarara City at Kakyeka Stadium. Kajoba was handed the ban after insulting centre referee Dennis Batte when Bright Stars settled for goalless draw with Vipers last week.
At Luzira, Maroons will take on URA while Soana will play Masavu at Kavumba Recreation Ground.
