Phillip Omondi stadium 4:30pm

Defending champions KCCA football club return to action on Friday at home(Phillip Omondi stadium) against struggling side Police with the aim of returning to winning ways.

KCCA have gone two games without picking maximum points and assistant coach Morley Byekwaso is aware of the pressure from the chasing park and expects a better performance.

” We are quit aware of the pressure from the other teams but we need to keep focused and see that we get a good result against Police, medicine ” said Byekwaso.

” Police is a good team, they have experienced players and a great manager but we have had a perfect record at home this season, so we expect to build on that to go past them,” he added.

KCCA have not picked a win in the last two games, losing 2-1 to Vipers and a one all draw against Kirinya Jinja SS giving chance to the chasing park to close in with Vipers drawn on same points as KCCA (19 points).

The return of defender Martin Mpuuga brings relief to KCCA defense according to Byekwaso.

” Of course his return is a timely boost, he have had a lot of injuries previously and we were forced to play Dennis Okot in the central defense against Kirinya Jinja SS but with Mpuuga back, that gives us shape at the back,” said Byekwaso.

However defender Lawrence Kasadha and goalkeeper Douglas Kisembo are still sidelined with injuries.

On the other hand, the corps come into this game on the back of a 3-3 draw against Express last week and  midfielder Osman Mutumba believes they can shock the league leaders.

“Our start has been a tough one but we have working hard to see that we get we hit the ground going and the result against Express gives us a big boost ahead of the encounter against KCCA,” he said.

The last meeting between the two sides came on 2nd April 2016, KCCA FC defeated Police 2-1.

Mike Mutebi’s charges are top of the league table on 19 points same as second placed Vipers while Police on the other hand languish in the drop zone second from the bottom on 7 points.
