“We are bringing a strong approach against Express because we don’t want to lose at home, approved ” KCCA’s Morley Byekwaso hinted, online adding that, “Both teams have valuable experience in the playing and coaching staff but our will to stay at the top of the Uganda Premier League table will help us prevail on Tuesday.”

The Kasasiros will be without of Martin Mpuuga, Isaac Muleme, Derrick Nsibambi, and Lawrence Kasadha who are still occupying the sick bay.

A win could push Express FC to second or third place depending on results in the Villa vs Soana game.

The Red Eagles will miss injured trio that has left back Ismail Kazibwe, Isaac Sserunkuma and Kakooza Mahad while Derrick Tekko, the hero against Vipers, has accumulated three cautions.
