Match day 19 of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League comes to conclusion on Thursday with three matches on card.
At Wankulukuku, title chasing Express and KCCA face off eager to win and keep pace with leaders Vipers.
KCCA are now four points adrift of the summit and must win to move within a point of the Venoms while the defending champions are 5th with 29 points.
Second placed KCCA make the trip aware that failure to win the game will leave a big advantage for Vipers who beat Soltilo Bright Stars 2-1 on Wednesday.
The defending champions are even in worse situation sitting 6th on the log with 29 points, a whopping 13 behind leaders.
“We’re done with our last training ahead of our game against KCCA FC on Thursday,” Express’ James Odoch stated. “We’ve used this period to correct our mistakes which we had in our last game away against Busoga United FC,” he stressed.
“KCCA FC are comfortable on the ball so we’ve worked more on the pressing because KCCA FC are good with the ball so i believe we’re ready to get maximum points”.
Morley Byekwaso believes playing with confidence will give his side edge in this huge fixture.
“We need to go there and play with confidence and show we want it more than them. That is how you win such games,” said Morley Byekwaso.
“We have prepared every player to be ready for the task at hand. We need to have the mental toughness and focus on the game.”
In Njeru, SC Villa host relegation rivals Busoga United while URA make a trip to Kakyeka to face Mbarara City.
The SC Villa –Busoga United game is an early kick off and one of the two games to be broadcast live on TV.
