Preview – Red Eagles hope to continue flying

Express FC have been flying high since the campaign started and there are no indications that they will slow down soon.

They currently sit second on the table, just two points behind leaders Vipers SC and they (Express) know that a victory will see them climb top of the log for at least 24 hours.

One of just two sides yet to lose a contest this campaign, the Red Eagles look to be growing in strength by each passing day.

Tuesday’s game sees them make yet another trip away from Wankulukuku after impressing on their last two travels.

Those away games have seen them impress immensely as they went on to win both of them while scoring eight goals in the process and conceding just once.

The Red Eagles thrashed BUL FC 4-0 before a brace each from Ssenkaba and Lwesibawa lifted them past MYDA 4-1.

Having demolished Wakiso Giants FC 3-0 in their past game, Bbosa’s side must be full of confidence going into the game.

Kitara have continuously 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 nine 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 with just goal difference separating them.

Coming off a 4-0 loss away to KCCA, Kitara must head into the game on Tuesday concerned with only a return to home being their motivation.

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 saw Kitara shockingly eliminate Express 2-0 in February 2018.
