Wankulukuku – Express FC will be seeking for their first league home victory when they host Tooro United at the Mutessa II War Memorial Stadium in Wankulukuku on Wednesday afternoon.
The Red Eagles have miserably drawn both of their initial two fixtures in Wankulukuku and will be hoping they can take care of a Tooro side that are still unbeaten on the road this season.
Tooro have four points this season, all coming in their away fixtures, winning 1-0 at Bul before drawing 0-0 at Paidah in their last league outing.
Tuesday’s encounter pits Tooro United’s coach Wasswa Bbosa against his former paymasters having been at Wankulukuku for the better part of his top flight coaching career.
Bbosa also comes with a host of former Express players including Godfrey Lwesibawa, Isa Lumu, Simon Serunkuma, Ayub Kizza, Mahad Yaya Kakooza and Musa Mukasa.
Kefa Kisala will on the other hand have to cope without injured striker Ruben Kabuye and youngster Billy Nkata who is ill. He however welcomes Badiru Nsubuga from injury.
Returning defender Isaac Mutanga is expected to make his debut after securing his playering license in the eleventh hour.
Express won the reverse fixture 4-0 last season. The victory was the biggest either side has registered on the other in all their previous 10 meetings.
That Victory was also the first that Express registered at home to Tooro United since April 2014.
Tooro United have only ever triumphed once away to Express and the victory dates back to December 2014 when Wasswa Bbosa was still the head coach of the Red Eagles.
Going into the game, Express have won only two of their last team league fixtures (D5 L3).
At home, the Red Eagles have only one of their last nine league fixtures (W4 D4). Howver, all their last three league fixtures have ended goalless.
For Tooro United, they head into Tuesday’s game with only two victories in their last 12 league fixtures (D3 L7).
Away from home, they have won only two of their last 13 league games (D4 L7).
