Saturday April 16, 2016, JMC Hippos Vs KCCA – Kakindu @ 4pm
KCCA will be eager to take advantage of Vipers’ slip-up with their first win at Kakindu since 2014 when they visit JMC Hippos.
The Kasasiro Boys last picked victory at the venue on May 2, 2014 when they beat Bul 1-0 and their subsequent visits have seen them draw once and lose as many.
Nevertheless, all the meetings at the venue have been against Bul but in JMC Hippos, they face another opposition.
James Odoch’s coached side in their maiden campaign have proved a hard nut to crack and surprisingly sit fourth on the log on 37 points; eleven adrift of KCCA who lead the log although they have played one more game.
KCCA’s Joseph Ochaya is wary of the threat they pose at their home ground where they have lost once in twelve games.
“They are not easy regardless of where they play but they are tougher at home,” he told upl.co.ug. “We need to be at our best if we are to pick maximum points and keep our title hunt in good hands,” he added.
KCCA who won the first round match 1-0 at Luzira courtesy of Nelson Senkatuka goal head into the game minus first choice back pairing of Timothy Awani and Hassan Wasswa Dazo as well as midfielder Ivan Ntege but they are happy to have defender cum midfielder Lawrence Kasadha back to full fitness.
Derrick Nsibambi is expected to continue leading the hunt for goals in the absence of Ceaser Okhuti while Richard Wandyaka and Ajab Abdurrahman will be the go to men for the hosts.
