Express hosts Masavu in battle of bottom placed sides

Uganda Premier  League (Match day 10):

  • Wednesday, 15th November 2017
  • Express Vs Masavu
  • Mutesa II Wankulukuku Stadium (4:30 PM)
Masavu XI that faced KCCA at the Star Times stadium, Lugogo

Newly promoted Masavu and 6 time Uganda Premier League winners, Express are in eminent danger of being relegated if the current trend of their performances does not change for the better.

In 9 games for Masavu, the Entebbe based side has managed just one win (away to Proline at Lugogo).

Express on the other hand has won twice in 8 matches.

Both clubs are almost in the same managerial crisis dilemma with a change in guard at the respective technical  departments calling (if the results do not change).

Express fell at home to Onduparaka and has drawn on two occassions at the once intimidating Muteesa II Wankulukuku Stadium to Kirinya-Jinja S.S and Bright Stars.

In Douglas Bamwenyana, they still have a confident coach, a believer that the team is just ‘unlucky’.

Bamwenyana has since castigated the players’ character as he has called for a complete overhaul.

Either of the two goalkeepers Emmanuel Opio and Godwin Bbule could start for the Red Eagles in the goal posts.

Team skipper David Ndihabwe leads the cast of talented midfielders alongside Davis Mayanja and Steven Luswata.

Daniel ‘Muzeei’ Sserunkuma, the current top scorer at the club will lead the line, most likely ahead of Michael Birungi, Sam Ggaliwango and Ssebaduka.

Masavu’s prodigal son, Abraham Ndugwa, the top scorer for Alex Gitta and Joseph Mutyaba’s side will as usual lead the line.

Ddumba Sadala, Fred Umony, Sulaiman Muttah and Veron Ddamba are the other players that the away side will dwell upon.

Masavu is well aware that they are one side that has conceded the most goals in the league.

They have also conceded the most goals in a single game (6-0 away to KCCA at Lugogo).

Anything less of victory for either side will spell doom.
