Kitara FC will be seeking to extend their lead at the top when they welcome Ndejje University FC at the Kigaaya COU play grounds on Thursday.

The Masindi based club were held to a goalless draw against Police FC in their previous game last week on Wednesday at Kavumba.

That result saw them move to 17 points and are just a point above second placed Mbarara City and third placed NEC FC who are leading the chasing pack.

Back at home, Kitara will have eyes on maximum points to bounce back to winning ways.

Speaking ahead of the game, head coach Mark Twinamatsiko anticipates a tough contest but is optimistic his side will do the needful.

“Our games against them have not always been easy but our target is the same, to win and to do everything to be in the top flight league next season.” he said.

“We are playing against a credible and experienced opponent but the most important thing is to maximize our chances. It is going to be an exciting tie and we have the quality to challenge our opponents. The most important thing is we are playing at home and have the best fans whose passion and support is  priceless, he told the club’s media on Wednesday.

Against Ndejje, they face a side that has been stubborn to them in the past meetings as they have not picked any win against them in the past three games.

But Kitara, who have won all their four games at home this season will bank on that good run to get the job done on Thursday.

Their leading top scorer in Patrick Kaddu (9 goals), will be tasked once again to lift up his side as they seek to bounce back.

Meanwhile, the Visitors will have the same ambitions of returning back to Winning ways when they take a Visit to Kitara.

The Raymond Komakech coached side suffered a 1-0 loss against Mbarara City, after conceding a late goal in the dying minutes of the game last week on Thursday at Bombo.

In Kitara, they face a tricky side but they will bank on the good run they have enjoyed against them in the recent past.

Ndejje are currently 10th on the log with just nine points and they will have eyes on any positive result to keep closing the gap at the top.
