Express FC will have head coach Wasswa Bbosa back on the touchline when they take on home side Police at Lugogo on Tuesday in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
Bbosa returns from a three match suspension slapped on him by Fufa for uttering words that were deemed unsporting during their loss against Arua Hill.
The defending champions are aiming at getting their second win of the season having won just once against BUL (away), drew 2-2 against Vipers SC at home and lost twice against Arua Hill (home) and UPDF in Bombo.
Although Police are yet to register any point from their first four games of the season, Bbosa is not taking things for granted.
“We’ve since been making corrections since Saturday, the players did their best on the day but we all felt we needed to do better and I believe we’re ready. Police is a decent side even though they’ve lost four games I think they’re still a great side with good players so it won’t be easy but we shall endeavour to get the maximum points,” Bbosa told club media on Monday.
The Red Eagles also have their assistant captain Abel Etrude available for selection after shaking off a nock that forced him out of the 2-2 draw against Vipers on Saturday.
Midfielder Godfrey Lwesibawa has resumed training but will have to pass a late fitness test if he’s to make the day squad.
Skipper Enock Walusimbi remains injured and will miss his fourth straight league game.
The two sides are meeting for the 25th time with Express targeting a 12th victory while the Abdallah Mubiru coached side has six wins on their name and the rest ending in draws.
