WANKULUKUKU – After both side registered their first victories of the 2018/19 season last time out, Nyamityobora and Police FC will square off at Wankulukuku in one of the six day’s fixtures on Tuesday.
Nyamityobora came from a goal down to defeat Mbarara FC 2-1 in the Ankole derby played at Wankukulukuku while Police overcame Ndejje University with the same scoreline in Luwero.
Nyamityobora FC is likely to miss the services of John Wesley Kisakye and Calvin Barni Tar who have been nursing injuries. With Captain Henry Wamala still suspended, left-back Alex Komakech will continue wearing the arm band.
The home side will look at Joseph Akandanahwo and Charles Musige for inspiration as they attempt to win their second league game.
For Police, Ronald Nyanzi the Cop’s leading scorer with two goals, Juma Balinnya, Hassan Kalega and Rueben Kimera will be the men to watch.
This will be the first ever top light meeting between the two sides.
Both sides head into the encounter with three points having won one and lost three of their first four encounters.
Nyamityobora have lost five of their last seven league and cup games (W2 D0).
This will be their third home fixture of the campaign, wining one and losing the other of the first two. In those two games, they have conceded five and scored three goals.
For Police, they go into Tuesday’s fixture having won only one of their last five league outings (D1 L3).
