Preview: KCCA Hope To Bounce Back
KCCA will seek to collect their second win of the season when they welcoke Gaddafi at Lugogo Stadium.
The hosts, KCCA, are hungry for victory after enduring a heart-wrenching 2-1 defeat to Busoga United in their previous outing.
And this fixture will be the first at home for appointed coach, Abdallah Mubiru, who is expected to inject fresh tactics and motivation into the squad.
KCCA will feel that the loss against Busoga United was down to the ugly conditions in which the game was played in, especially the candle-light floodlights to say the least.
But with a couple of players, including Striker Shaban Muhammad, back, the hosts will feel they have the edge at least.
The current season has been nothing short of a rollercoaster ride for KCCA, once hailed as pre-season favorites but now finding themselves languishing at the second-bottom spot in the league standings.
Their disappointing start has left fans and pundits alike in dismay, as they trail Gaddafi by a significant six-point margin.
Gaddafi, currently eighth on the table with 10 points, presents a formidable challenge for KCCA.
Despite their recent 2-2 draw against Bright Stars, Gaddafi arrives with confidence, having clinched victories in their last two away fixtures against NEC (Lugogo) and Arua Hill.
This away triumph streak adds an extra layer of intensity and anticipation to the impending showdown at Lugogo.
KCCA, yearning to overturn their fortunes, will be aiming to seize this home advantage and regain momentum.
Last season at Lugogo, Alex Kitata had cancelled out Brian Majwega’s early opener but Allan Okello got the winner with 10 minutes remaining on the clock as KCCA won 2-1. None of those players is still at the club.
Head To Head
Gaddafi 0-1 KCCA
KCCA 2-1 Gaddafi
Gaddafi 1-0 KCCA
KCCA 2-1 Gaddafi
