Preview – KCCA Out To Extend Resurgence

Busoga United FC host KCCA FC at the FUFA Technical centre in Njeru in a league game that will kickoff at 1pm.

KCCA FC enter Match-day eleven with seven points behind leaders Vipers SC.

If the club will be a genuine Contender this season, they should start winning ways.

They beat Kitara comfortably, in a game where defender Peter Magambo scored a brace.

However, the talking point from the 4-0 win over Kitara will be that no striker registered his name on the score-sheet, something that coach Mike Mutebi should be worried about.

Brian Aheebwa is yet to scored a goal this year in the league but KCCA FC will be hoping for the best from Sadat Anaku and Charles Lwanga carries the scoring burden.

Against Busoga United, they face a side that is still in search for their first win, leave alone the finances that have seen some players leave the club.

What They Said:

Fred Lumu (Assistant Coach, Busoga United) – “We are set as usual, very prepared. It was a narrow escape for URA in our last game. we respect KCCA but we don’t fear them.”

Mike Mutebi (KCCA) – “I know its not going to be easy for us. They have lost matches but the last game they lost to URA, am sure they can compete with the bes.”
