- UPDF Vs KCCA – Bombo 4pm
Following a disappointing draw at home to Maroons on day one, champions KCCA travel to Bombo for a duel against UPDF banking on brilliant stats against the side.
The Kasasiro have always prevailed in this fixture when the side was still called Simba and also did a double over The Saints last campaign.
To be precise, the Lugogo based side have won 11 of the previous 14 meetings losing only two and drawing the other.
Coach Moses Basena whose side lost to URA in the first game has underlined the importance of the fixture insisting history won’t matter as much on Saturday.
“We are facing a big side, the champions but we are ready for them,” he said. “Our mission is to fight for points especially at home and the boys are charged up,” he added.
The visitors will have goalie Benjamin Ochan back in goal after starting on the bench against Maroons and Mutebi has defended the decision to bench Charles Lukwago who put up a man of the match performance against Maroons.
“Ochan returns in goal against UPDF, not because Lukwago had a bad game against Maroons, if am not mistaken he was our man of the match,” revealed Mutebi who also confirmed striker Patrick Kaddu will make his league debut at Bombo.
“In every team there is want we call first among equals, Ochan is our first choice goalkeeper much as Lukwago is also very good and can carry the team any day.
KCCA have a chance to go top with a win of a decent goal margin as long SC Villa, Police and URA don’t bag victories.
