Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Football Club host West Nile side Onduparaka FC on Tuesday in one of the fixtures of match day two of the 2020/21 Uganda Premier League.
However, the two sides go into the game with parallel objectives. First, KCCA target a second win of the season in as many games after winning 2-1 on the road against Bright Stars. And secondly, to stretch their 100% home winning record against the Caterpillars to five.
On the other hand, Onduparaka are not only searching for their maiden victory of the season but also doing some edits on the statistics that are wholesomely in favor of the Kasasiro collectors.
Since promotion to the top tier league, Onduparaka have lost to KCCA more times (5) than any other side and have never picked any point away to the thirteen time champions.
Onduparaka, currently under the stewardship of coach Vialli Bainomugisha, have conceded a whopping 16 goals scoring just once in their last four visits to the now MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.
On match day one, Onduparaka despite failing to raise more than 13 players, forced a draw off Wasswa Bbosa’s fancied Express at the Green Light stadium and will hope to build on that.
Despite missing the services of Bright Anukani and Andrew Kawooya, Coach Mike Mutebi his team have enough in their armoury to win the game.
“Anukani is a starter and we will continue to miss him,” said Mutebi.
“However, we have good replacements including Juma Balinya and Keziron Kizito in that position.”
Brian Aheebwa who scored on his debut will be eager to add on his tally while Julius Malingumu and Kabon Living will be vital for the visitors.
Last season KCCA thrashed Onduparaka 4-0 at home with Mike Mutyaba scoring a hat trick while Sadat Anaku scored the other goal.
Elsewhere on Tuesday, MYDA will play their first ever top flight game when they host Police at the King George IV Memorial Stadium, Tororo, Busoga United host Bul in the Jinja derby at Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru while Wakiso Giants host Kyetume at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, Wakiso.
In the other game on the day, URA who were held to a 1-1 draw in Mbarara host Soltilo Bright Stars at Arena of Visions, Ndejje.
