KCCA FC Head Coach Mike Mutebi has predicted a very hard game when his charges visits Maroons at Luzira Prisons on Tuesday in the Startimes Uganda Premier League.
The fixture was supposed to be played on game day three but was postponed because of KCCA FC players’ involvement for National duty.
“We expect a tough challenge from Maroons FC, they play a good brand of football but we are ready for the challenge,” Mutebi said before adding.
“After getting that huge win against Onduparaka, I expect the players to build on that win and keep going till the end.”
“It is important that the National team players are back and there was positivity in camp in the training sessions ahead of this fixture.”
“The competition in the side is good for us coaches and players. Also, Anaku is back from the sick bay and he is in contention to start against Maroons FC,” he added.
KCCA FC lies 8th on the log with ten points, they have won three games, drawing once and lost twice this term.
Maroons FC on the other hand, is a position better on the log than KCCA FC but have played two games more, winning four times, drawing once and have lost thrice.
The last league fixture at Luzira Prisons Grounds between both teams ended 1-0 in the hands of KCCA FC on December 1st 2018 courtesy of Jackson Nunda’s strike.
KCCA FC will be boosted by the return of teenager Sadat Anaku who has passed the fitness test ahead of this fixture while Muzamiru Mutyaba commenced light jogging last week and resumed full training on Monday.
Julius Poloto has stepped up his rehabilitation and could be back soon while Eric Ssenjobe, Jurua Hassan, and Sadam Juma are all ruled out due to injury.
