KCCA FC will welcome back roving left back Mustafa Kizza on Saturday when they host struggling Bright Stars on match-day seven of the 2019/20 StarTimes UPL.

Kizza reportedly suffered a minor injury that saw him miss the club’s 1-0 loss to Tooro United on Wednesday.

He is his expected to take back his place in defence ahead of Eric Ssenjobe who filled the void at St Paul Seminary in Fort Portal.

The left back has been integral for the Lugogo based charges, scoring the only goal as KCCA beat Busoga at Njeru and was also on target as KCCA dispatched African Stars on the Continent.

Creative midfielder Muzamir Mutyaba who also missed the game in Fort, is still doubtful and may miss out according to coach Mike Mutebi.

Saddam Juma, Hassan Jurua and Julius Poloto remain long term absentees.

John Odumegwu and Keziron Kizito who impressed on their debut are expected to reprisal their roles while Mike Mutyaba and Allan Okello who missed penalties against ten-man Tooro, will be the team’s source for goals.

Coach Mutyaba Confident

Club coach Mike Mutyaba has said that there is no cause for alarm after a disappointing loss against Tooro.

Mutebi, speaking on morning in a press briefing held at Lugogo on Friday, said his side played as expected only that they failed to bury the chances on Wednesday.

“The team’s performance is good, we had gone so many months without losing a game. We played about 15 matches before the loss,” said Mutebi.

“We have been having a good run, the result against Tooro was disappointing but we would not have scored even if we played for 120 minutes because Tooro was more organised and defended well. We played well, created chances, used the ball well but the problem was putting the ball at the back of the net.

“Am not worried, the progress is good, the new players have fitted in well not like previously and I believe that there is going to be a good reaction on Saturday.”

The visitors, Bright Stars, are yet to win a game – They have collected three points from their six league games.
