In a bid to advance to the next round of the Uganda Cup, Kitara is set to face Nebbi Central FC at the Luo Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The Uganda Premier League side is determined to overcome their opponents, who currently hold the 4th position in the West Nile, Nyagak zone standings with 16 points.

This encounter marks the second meeting between the two teams, with Kitara securing a 2-0 victory in a friendly match at Kigaaya in 2022, thanks to goals from Derrick Byabachwezi and Clinton Kamugisha.

However, Kitara faces challenges as their goalkeeper, Luwalo Kipper, is recovering from a groin injury, and Ibrahim Magandaazi is also unavailable due to injury.

Kitara has encountered difficulties during their visits to West Nile, including falling to Calvary FC twice last season at Midigo play grounds.

They were eliminated by Calvary at the Round of 16 match in the Uganda Cup in a gripping 8-7 penalty shootout.
