KCCA coach Morley Byekwaso is adamant his side will pick maximum points to extend their lead at the summit when they host Arua Hill on Friday.
The game comes on the back of a slim 1-0 win over Wakiso Giants and progress to the R16 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup and also on the back of dropping points by chasing pack.
Second, third and fourth placed BUL, Vipers and Wakiso Giants all dropped points which gives the Kasasiro chance to open a six point gap.
“We are focused on the game and we know it’s not an easy game,” said Byekwaso. “We lost in Arua and drew with them here and we know the game is going to be hard but if you want to be champions, you must play well and win,” he added.
KCCA will look to Muhammad Shaban, Allan Okello and Tshisungu Kankonde for goals with returning Geoffrey Wasswa and Mustafa Mujjuzi shielding the back.
For Arua Hill, Reagan Mpande, Gaddafi Wahab and Rashid Toha will be the key players.
In the past three meetings, both have won once and the other ending in a draw.
