MBARARA CITY VS KCCA: Byekwaso’s men aim to keep the slim title hopes alive

Sigmund AINE

Morley Byekwaso will take his KCCA side to Mbarara city in a bid to complete their first ever double over the Ankole Lions.

Having won the reverse fixture 2-0 at Lugogo, they will hope to finish off Mbarara city this evening, they haven’t won at Kakyeka before.

The two sides have met 7 times in the league with KCCA having the upper hand having won twice losing once and drawing four times.

Charles Livingston Mbabazi has not lost a single match since taking over from Brian Senyondo. In his four match tenure so far, he has darwn with BUL, beaten Wakiso Giants and MYDA with his most recent match being a stalemate with Express when his team were a man down.

Head to head:

The previous 5 meetings between them have been dominated by KCCA with 2 wins and 2 draws, Mbarara city have only won once.

A win for Mbarara city will see them climb the table a place up from 11th position to the 10th which is currently occupied by Onduparaka who have played a game more to the same points 24 with Mbarara city having a better goal difference.

On the other hand KCCA will also be in dire need of maximum 3 points as these will see them move from 33 points to 36 points and to fourth place currently occupied by Police FC who have also played a game more.

However, KCCA head coach Morley Byekwaso knows what a big task lies ahead of him and his boys coming back to the capital with a win as he was full of praise for his opponents in his pre-match conference.

We face a very good side in Mbarara City. They have a very good home record against us. We have not beaten them at Kakyeeka in three games we have played here. We want to break the jinx and pick three points here. The players have to be very ready for the challenge that lies ahead and come to the party.This game is the first of our two back to back away games and we want it to give us the rhythm ahead of our next encounter’.

The gaffer who doubles as Cranes under 17 coach said that he will miss a few players through injury the most worrying being  striker Brian Aheebwa.
