Nyamityobora vs Ndejje University, 4:30 PM
Relegation battle comes too early as Nyamityobora face off with fellow strugglers Ndejje University Lions in Kakyeka Stadium, Mbarara.
This, will be the first game Nyamityobora will host in Kakyeka Stadium. The Abanyakare have been using Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.
However, its not known whether Kakyeka will be in good conditions following a religious concert that was held at the venue on Thursday.
The hosts will want to open up Kakyeka with nothing but victory, which will be the first win for Nyamityobora since Coach Asaph Mwebaze’s arrival.
Mwebaze, formerly at Onduparaka reolaced James Odoch at the helm – He has now lost the three games he has been in charge of the club.
Mwebaze lost to SC Villa in Wankulukuku before falling to Tooro and Maroons in Buhinga and Luzira respectively.
Everything has not gone right for both teams so far as the duo are in the drop zone – Nyamityobora are second from the bottom with four points and Ndejje are a place above, with eight points from eleven games.
However, the visitors cross Lwera with better moods after holding SC Villa in their recent league game.
Team Coach Raymond Komakech however noted that his side could have walked away with maximum points if it wasn’t the poor officiating on the day.
Ronald Odokonyero gave Ndejje an halftime lead but Bashir Mutanda draw Villa level at the hour mark to deny Komakech’s side maximum points.
“I am disappointed with the results. I think we should have won the game but I believe the game was kind of manipulated because of pressure from the Villa fans that the referee started making cheeky decisions and failed to stand on his own words,” noted coach Koma after the game.
He added: “Right now we are focusing on the game against Nyamityobora and that’s where all our game plan is going to be now but otherwise I want to thank my players for the fighting spirit and not loosing at home.”
Komakech will hope that Noel Nasasira, Ntege Anwar, Sam Matovu come with their scoring boots to roar past Nyamityobora.
