(StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo)
*Ndejje Vs Nyamityobora
(Stadium of Vision, Bombo)
Its a do or die match for Paidha Black Angels who will play host to visiting title hopefuls KCCA FC in a league game on Tuesday.
Paidha will be relegated if they fail to get maximum points! The side have collected 12 points after 25 games and a loss will mean that they can only manage 12 points in their last four games, tallying just 24, which is still below 13th placed Maroons who has 26 points.
This, will be the club’s third game they host at Bar Okoro Stadium after playing most of their home games at Greenlight Stadium in Arua.
The club beat up on Nyamityobora 2-0 in the first league game at Zombo with Dickens Okwir scoring a brace. The side have since lost five games in a row, including a 2-0 home defeat to URA FC.
Paidha have had a season to forget, mainly highlighted by their failure to make Bar Okoro Stadium ready as required by FUFA competitions committee. The club has recently parted ways with deputy CEO Fred Akena.
Title At Stake:
This is a game of differing ambitions. While as Paidha will be looking for maximum points to dodge relegation, KCCA will all go out to lighten their title ambitions. No room for errors for both sides.
The Garbage collectors, leading the table with 53 points sit above Vipers (49) and URA (43) and are strong favourites for this year’s crown.
“Like always, we want to take this game seriously, we drew with Vipers and now the boys are aware of what’s at stake,” said Morley Byekwaso, KCCA assistant Coach.
Allan Kyambadde is back in contention and Patrick kaddu is expected to start. Kaddu scored an hat-trick when KCCA beat Paidha 3-0 at Lugogo in the reverse fixture.
KCCA who were held at home to Vipers, have not lost a game since falling to URA on February 26 and the side will be aiming at maximum points, whatever at stake.
In other games, Police FC will host wounded Lions Onduparaka FC who lost 1-0 to Tooro United in their last game. Ndejje host Nyamityobora in a relegation battle encounter.
