UPL: KCCA FC Hope to Stretch Lead


Uganda Premier League
StarTimes Uganda Premier League

KCCA FC have a big chance to stretch their lead at the top of the league table should they earn maximum points against BUL FC at StarTimes stadium today.

With title rivals Vipers SC dropping two points on Tuesday following a one all draw against Tooro United FC, KCCA FC have a chance to go six points clear.

However, the worry is that, KCCA FC have failed to use the chances whenever they have come. For instance, when Vipers SC fell to Villa over the weekend, KCCA FC only settled for a draw away to Bright Stars FC.

BUL FC have been a tricky side this season striking a balance between offence and defence and KCCA FC will have to play their A game if they are to pick maximum points.

The Jinja based side are fresh from a 1-0 win against Express FC and will hope to carry that motivation to Lugogo.

Farouk Banga limped off last Sunday but has recovered in time and will be available for selection. The former Bright Stars man has been vital to the team as a right back.


Experienced Jimmy Kuluba impressed on his debut and was named man of the match but will face a stern test to tame robust Patrick Kaddu.

KCCA FC welcome back Lawrence Bukenya and Saddam Ibrahim Juma from injury but the duo is likely to start on bench with Nicholas Kasozi likely to maintain his slot on the starting team.

This will be the last game that manager Mike Hillary Mutebi will be serving off his four match touchline ban.

Victory will move KCCA FC to 44 points while BUL FC will remain fourth despite the result. They are currently on 30 points. KCCA FC won the first leg 3-1 in Jinja.

In the other league game to be played on Wednesday, wounded Express FC will target quick amends when they visit Nyamityobora FC at Kakyeka stadium.

New coach George Ssimwogerere failed on the first test but will hope his charges put up a better show today.
