KCCA visit tricky Cops eager for victory

  • Police Vs KCCA – Mandela National stadium, Namboole 4pm

KCCA took the title race to the wire with a late winner against Bul and must replicate same spirit at Namboole when they visit Police in their final game.

The champions know that a win may not be enough to make them retain the title but will go for it and hope for a result in their favour at Kitende where Vipers host UPDF.

The Kasasiro won the reverse fixture at Lugogo 2-0 in a game they were totally dominated and the Cops, already safe from the drop may seek to avenge the painful defeat.

“Our target is to finish in the top five,” said Abdallah Mubiru. “And to do that, we must win our remaining game against KCCA so all mission is to win on Friday,” he added.

The Cops will draw inspiration from the win at Maroons, a venue not many teams including KCCA have picked all points.

Norman Ojik, Juma Balinya, Ruben Kimera and Ben Ocen will be the key men for the hosts up front with Ibrahim Kibumba and Sadat Kyambadde keeping things tight at the back.

The visitors may have striker Muhammad Shaban back in the team after he was shockingly left out of match day squad in the win over Bul.
