Onduparaka will hope to make amends when they welcome Kaaro Karungi at Greenlight Stadium in Arua on Match-day Nine of the FUFA Big League.

The Caterpillars come into this fixture on the back of a 2-0 away loss against Jinja United, the club’s fourth loss in seven games.

They have collected nine points out of a possible 21 so far after seven games, which doesn’t make a good reading for a team that targets immediate return to Uganda Premier League following relegation last season.

After a string of poor results, the Club appointed a new Assistant Coach Ekidu Steven to replace Omar Mohamadhin who was relieved of his duties together with Goal Keeping Coach and Second Fitness trainer.

Caesar Okhuti is still the head coach, acting in a coach-player role. In their last game at home, Okhuti came from the bench to score a brace as they came from a goal down to beat Young Elephant 2-1.

Against Kaaro Karungi, Onduparaka will be without Faisal Ssekyanzi, Mandela Malish and GoalKeeper Kanakulya Jimmy while Andama Junior faces a Late fitness test.

They will welcome back Brian Ade who has finished his Exams at Bugema University.

Onduparaka will bank on their home ground where they have collected all their three wins this season.

And it’s a daunting task for Kaaro Karungi who have lost three of their four visits this season.
