Kirinya Jinja SS Vs KCCA FC, 4:30 PM
(Might Arena, Jinja)
KCCA FC coach Mike Hillary Mutebi has vowed to beat Kirinya Jinja SS as the two sides meet at the Mighty Arena in a league game on Wednesday.
The KCCA FC gaffer believes that his side has got enough armoury and has had enough preparations ahead of the encounter.
Mutebi was speaking during a press briefing held at StarTimes Stadium on Tuesday.
“We must win, we have everything it takes to beat them. They are going to be difficult but we shall go there and get all the points.
“We are going to do everything so as we negotiate that tie, all the players with the exception of Poloto who is out.
“We must win against Kirinya in order to enhance our chances of trying to win the league.”
KCCA FC come into the game on top of the log with 49 points, four above second placed Vipers who host Maroons FC in Kitende.
Mutebi’s charges have won 14, drawn seven and lost twice in the league this season.
“We have been training in the last week in accordance to how we are going to play.
“We have some of the best players in the country and we need them to show that potential against Kirinya.”
The Garbage Collectors, as widely known, which is loosely translated as the Kasasiro boys, will miss Julius Poloto but the rest of the squad including the National team representatives are available for selection.
Against Kirinya, they face aside that has won their last three league games 2-1. They gave beaten up on Mbarara, Nyamityobora and SC Villa.
Kirinya, eighth on the 16 team log, drew goalless in Lugogo in the reverse fixture. However, they have never beaten up on KCCA FC in the league. Last season, KCCA won 1-0 away in Jinja.
