Fresh from a 6-1 drubbing of Nyamityobora, KCCA FC will turn their guns to Maroons when they visit the Prisons side in Luzira on Saturday afternoon.
The Kasasiro Boys are riding high on confidence, going into Saturday’s game top of the table and still unbeaten in the season. A win over Maroons will take KCCA to 21 points, three point ahead of second placed Vipers who will have played a game less.
Despite a few absentees, they still have a big squad which is full of quality, the same view shared by their Coach Mike Mutebi.
“We have the best squad in the league,” said Mutebi in the Post-match press conference.
“We have a lot of potential and if they can realize it like they did against Nyamityobora, we can beat anyone,” he added.
Coming up against a Maroons side who play a similar brand of football like KCCA, Mutebi had this to say.
“Maroons is a good passing team and i personally love playing against such teams. All in all i am confident we have enough in us to win the game,” he said.
The Kasasiros will be welcoming back Nicholas Kasozi from a lengthy lay off and the midfielder is expected to make the Match-Day squad on Saturday. However, they will still be without the injured, Muzamir Mutyaba, Filbert Obenchan, Gift Ali and Bernard Muwanga.
Maroons have a few KCCA former players in their ranks including Herman Wasswa who the team will look at for inspiration.
The Prison side are currently desperate for points as they are currently only goals away from relegation. This season, they have only won a single game.
