Brian Ssenyondo will be in the dugout as troubled Mbarara City play host to Onduparaka on Tuesday in the StarTimes UPL at Kakyeka Stadium.

The young tactician handled the team’s training on Monday in Mbarara in the wake of Paul Nkata’s sacking.

Nkata who had replaced Ssenyondo, parted ways with the Ankole Lions after a 3-0 loss away to BUL to leave the side winless in last six league games.

Ssenyondo has been reappointed on an interim and has a chance to impress but the club is in talks with Wasswa Bbosa and Livingston Mbabazi.

Coach Mbabazi has reportedly agreed to join Mbarara City after he was spotted with Mbarara City club president Hon Mwine Mpaka on Monday in Kampala.

The Caterpillars who will be without Mbabazi as he travelled with the Uganda Cranes team in Burkina Faso, are confident after beating Kyetume 7-1 in their last encounter.

“We have prepared well for this game knowing that if we get the result we want it will push us to finish 1st round on high note which something we are looking up to,” Onduparaka captain Wahab Gadafi told the-SportsNation.com.

“We beat Kyetume 7-1 but that is now past. This is a different opponent and we are away. We just hoping for the best.”

Mbarara, under Ssenyondo, beat Onduparaka 2-0 in the Pilsner Super eight before the start of this season. Paul Mucureezi and Jasper Aheebwa were on target at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in Wakiso.

Last season, Onduparaka won 2-1 in Kakyeka. Hilary Mukundane put the Ankole Lions in the lead but goals from Rashid Toha and Caesar Okhuti saw the visitors turn the tables.

Onduparaka occupy fourth with 23 points, 13 points above Mbarara in 13th place on the log.
