Preview: Mbarara City Visit UPDF Without Wasswa Bbosa

Mbarara City will be without head coach Wasswa Bbosa when they take on hosts UPDF in a league game at Bombo.

Bbosa was sent off for dissent during their hard-fought victory against KCCA at Kakyeka stadium.

And his absence from the touchline due to a suspension might impact their momentum.

Assistant Coach Zaidi Byekwaso who is also a former player for the club, will be in charge.

The question remains whether Mbarara City can build upon their recent strong performance for the tricky game against UPDF.

They will be expected to unleash Burundian International Shaka Trezor for his debut, who was at musongati last season.

For UPDF, they will seek to break their losing streak as the Army side has faced defeats in their last three matches against Arua Hill, Vipers, and Gaddafi.

This has left the side third from the bottom, inside the relegation zone.

With just one win in their five home games, improving this record is crucial to avoid relegation by the season’s end.
