AUPL: Onduparaka Hoping to Bounce Back Against JMC Hippos

Onduparaka FC welcome Jinja Municipal Council Hippos at their dreaded Green Light Stadium after a poor outing to Lugazi last week.

Both sides come from defeats, stomach Onduparaka losing 3-1 to URA FC despite leading as early as the fifteenth minute through Shabaan Muhammad. JMC on the other hand were unlucky not to pick a point at home against Soana FC.

The Jinja side conceded cheaply in the 70th minute after goalie Benson Wagima failed to hold Ssali’s long cross.

JMC sit rock bottom with only two points without a single victory going into their tenth game of the season. This fact gives Onduparaka more reason to be cautious.

“It’s the right time we need to wake up from the disappointing result, ” Onduparaka coach Mbabazi told ChimpSport.

“First we need to respect JMC because they have been in the league before and they know that they are in a dangerous position. That makes them a tough opponent but the fact is we need the points more than them, it’s an addiction of the home fans.”

Onduparaka have not lost a single home game this season with remarkable wins over Police FC, champions KCCA FC and SC Villa.

“We have to work out the whole 90 minutes because we know how their fans can charge them throughout the game. Our aim will be an early goal and restricting them away from our box,” Lutaalo said.


The game kicks off at 4:30 Pm.
