Newly appointed Mbarara city head coach Charles Livingston Mbabazi will target recording his second successive victory since taking over from Brian Senyondo.
He recorded his first win from their visit to Wakiso Giants and next in line are the whipping boys of MYDA.
Despite their struggles, MYDA have managed to score 18 goals, with 6 of them coming on the road. They have atleast averaged a goal in every match.
Mbarara city are fresh from a heartbreaking exit from the Uganda cup at the hands of URA, who beat them at their own backyard.
Interestingly, MYDA picked their first point in Uganda’s top flight league from their meeting against Mbarara city at the King George’s stadium in Tororo.
The entertaining tie ended 3-3 with city scoring a last gasp equaliser.
MYDA are coachless having reportedly fired their coach Musafiri following a 1-0 loss to SC Villa.
So far, Mbarara city have only lost once at home this term with 4 wins and 2 draws. MYDA on the other hand have won their only match this season on the road when they beat Kyetume at Njeru. They have been beaten 6 times when they played as visitors.
The match comes too early for Ronald Otti who was withdrawn in the 37 minute in the Uganda cup against URA. The rest of the squad are fit and available for selection.
Batali Moses , Rashid Mpata and Basoga Derrick did not make the trip to Mbarara but Mark Bassi returns after a recovering from injury. Ahmed Hussein is not fit enough to feature in this one.
Talisman Ibrahim Nsimbe missed the Uganda cup win against but he will be available tomorrow.
