KCCA FC will be hoping to maintain their perfect start to the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League season when they host Onduparaka FC at the MTN Omondi Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.
Mike Mutebi’s side got their campaign of to a winning start, last week, thanks to a hard fought 2-1 victory away to Bright Stars FC at Kavumba.
Debutant Brian Aheebwa and Sam Ssenyonjo scored for the Kasasiros who held on to the three points despite conceding a late consolation coupled by the Stars’ consistent pressure as the home side pressed for an equalizer.
On Tuesday, they take on an Onduparaka FC side that have lost every visit to Lugogo since attaining promotion to the top fligt in 2016.
In their four visits to Lugogo, Onduparaka have conceded 16 goals whilst scoring just one in the process.
Ahead of the game, the Kasasiros will still be without several players for the game including Bright Anukani, who is on-loan from Big League side Proline FC.
However, Mutebi is not worried and claims he has the replacements to win the game.
“Anukani is a starter and we will continue to miss him.” Noted Mutebi.
“However, we have good replacements including Juma Balinya and Keziron Kizito in that position.”
KCCA will also be without John Revita, Julius Poloto and Sadat Anaku who are ll long-term absentees.
For Onduparaka, they head into the contest off a 1-1 draw at home to Express FC in their opening game.
It was a game that Vialli Bainomugisha’s side should feel they should have won as the Red Eagles played the majority of it with 10 men after seeing a player sent off in the first half.
Against KCCA, they will have to be cautious throughout the contest and if they can pick up a draw, they will be good to go after losing all their past four visits to Lugogo.
