Previous action between KCCA FC and Kirinya Jinja SS FC in Bugembe. KCCA have gone on to win five straight games

Tuesday presented exciting round of fixtures in the Uganda Premier League with several jubilations and upsets for giants. Match day 14 extends to Wednesday where log leaders KCCA FC travel to Bugembe for a duel with Sadolin Paints FC.

The painters have proved a thorn for the defending champions in the four topflight clashes between the two.

Sadolin, sildenafil under tactical coach Swamadu Musafiri, clipped KCCA FC in an identical 1-0 victories both home and away in their maiden season in 2014-15. KCCA won the away clash last season but were held at home in the season closure.

The day’s hosts have not lost any of their last eight matches with five draws in between. Their last three at Bugembe collapsed in stalemates.

“The players get a lot of pressure at home than in away ground, but we have a plan in place to arrest the poor trend,” Assistant Coach Musafiri said. “The defensive partnership looks solid so we have been concentrating on the strike force.”

The painters will be boosted by the return of midfielder Dan Ekuyu from the sick bay. Centre back Sajjabi also returns to the team while Desmond Kyobe, Eddie Segane and Nasser Muzamir await late medical test.

The Kasasiros are on an impressive run of five consecutive wins scoring fourteen goals on the way. However their away record is still hot and cold with only two wins over Bright stars and BUL, then identical 2-1 losses to Onduparaka and Vipers. They have won only once at Bugembe in the league.

Prior to the five victories on the bounce, the league leaders had drawn one all against Kirinya in Bugembe.

“We have struggled a bit in Bugembe but according to the past experience we are going to be very tactical and get a win,” KCCA FC assistant Coach Morley Byekwaso noted. “They’re one of the most defensive in the league but we have been scoring goals.”

A win will push the defending champions to six points clear while if it can lift the hosts to seventh in case the result favors the Jinja side.
