Preview – KCCA target another thumping

KCCA FC will be hoping for another high-scoring win against another newly promoted side when they host Kitara FC.

Their last home game saw Mike Mutebi’s side thrash MYDA FC 5-0 last weekend and this is another opportunity to score as much as they can against another poor side.

They are coming off a 1-1 draw at Wakiso Giants FC in their most recent game and this is a perfect chance to return to winning ways and keep up pace with the leading pack.

Currently, KCCA sit in 8th spot with 14 points from their opening nine games.

They are eight points behind leaders Express and they know it is vital to beat up on sides like Kitara so as to keep themselves in contention for this year’s title.

Kitara have been awful in their maiden top flight season, so far.

After a spirited 1-1 draw at Kyetume in their first game, they have gone on to lose all their last eight fixtures.

Such form has left them facing the prospect of an instant return to the Big League.

They currently sit second from bottom, level with 16th place MYDA FC on one point.

Taking anything away from the game against KCCA on Saturday is a big ask and it will surely take a miracle for them to earn even a point at Lugogo.

The Stats

This will be the second meeting between the two sides in history.

The first was in a Uganda Cup game back in 2018, one that KCCA won 1-0.
