Preview: The Kasasiro Boys Eager to complete Double against Arua Hill

The Startimes Uganda Premier League match 25 will see KCCA FC host Arua Hill at the Omondi stadium in Lugogo.

The hosts are eager to fight for maximum points in order to keep table leader Vipers in sight, with the two teams set to meet on Saturday at Lugogo.

KCCA FC sit second on the log with 45 points, just seven points below log leaders Vipers on 52 and a win will cut the difference to a four point gap, with Vipers facing a daunting trip to URA.

Coach Morley Byekwaso insists that a league being a marathon, they take every game more important and they will handle one game at a time.

“We are taking it one game at a time and what is most important is the immediate game ahead of us,” said Coach Morley Byekwaso.

The confidence and game approach put up by the KCCA players during their win against UPDF FC will be vital according to coach Morley.

“We need to approach this game with big intent and if the players can exhibit the confidence they had in the previous game against UPDF FC then we can be unplayable.”

Arua Hill who lost the first leg at home and the only one they have lost so far playing at home will be aiming for a revenge mission as they take on KCCA FC.

Arua Hill FC assistant coach and former KCCA FC player Ceaser Okhuti anticipates a tougher tie as teams are currently fighting for better positions on the log as the league takes the last corner.

“It is a tough game playing away from home but the players have settled in well and are already geared up for the KCCA game. The league is in the last corner to the end, teams are fighting to finish in better places, others are fighting for the trophy while others are now pushing to beat relegation,” said Ceaser Okhuti.

“We lost our first home league game against KCCA FC but we come into this game with an aim for maximum points.”

KCCA FC beat Arua 1-0 in the reverse fixture played at Barifa stadium in Arua courtesy of a brilliant header scored by Davis Kasirye.
