The reigning Uganda Premier League Champions Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) will today make a short visit across town to Luzira Prison ahead of their battle with Maroons on Tuesday.
The fixture was supposed to be played on game day three but was postponed because of heavy involvement by Kasasiro boys for national duty then.
KCCA lies 8th on the 16 team log from six 6 games, winning three, drawing one and have lost twice and their hosts Maroons are 7th although they have played two games more, won four and drawn once and have lost three times.
Young striker Sadat Anaku is back to full fitness although midfielder Muzamiru Mutyaba is a huge doubt, and so are long time injury casualties as Julius Poloto, Ibrahim Sadam Juma and Eric Ssenjobe.
The home side’s technical department led by Douglas Bamweyana has plenty of options at their disposal with on form Pius Obuya, Steven Dese Mukwala, Rashid Agau, Davis Mayanja, skipper Silvester Okello and goalkeeper Hannington Ssebwalunyo some of the players ready to give their best shot.
The visitors will look to the goalkeeper Charles Lukwago, Mustafa Kizza, Allan Okello, Mike Mutyaba (hat-trick hero against Onduparaka), Abubakar Gift Ali, Nicholas Kasozi, Simon Sserunkuma, Kezironi Kizito, John Revita and the back to fitness Sadat Anaku for inspiration.
“We expect a tough challenge from Maroons. They play a good brand of football but we are ready for the challenge. After getting that huge win against Onduparaka, I expect the players to build on that win and keep going till the end. It is important that the National team players are back and there was positivity in camp in the training sessions ahead of this fixture. The competition in the side is good for us coaches and players. Also, Anaku is back from the sick bay and he is in contention to start against Maroons,” Mike Mutebi KCCA Manager said.
