Kirinya, Proline braced for clash

Sula Matovu will be vital for Proline against Kirinya Jinja SS

Kirinya Jinja SS hosts Proline with either targeting maximum points to continue a bright start to the new season.

The hosts lie 5th on the log with 9 points and a win, coupled with other results going their way, may go top for at least 24 hours more.

Proline also have an opportunity to hit double figures in terms of points collected with victory over what Mujib Kasule described as a much changed side from last season.

“No easy games this season,” said Kasule. “Jinja is now a very good team, very organised, fight hard and can also play,” he added.

They are at home and so it will be tough. But we are prepared for them and if we play according to the way we have trained, I think it will be a good result for us.

Kasule’s side have also picked maximum points from their previous two home matches and wants to see this replicated on the road starting with the game at Bugembe.

We have won two successive home games and so need to transfer that form to away as well. If we want to compete with the big teams, we need to win games away and tomorrow is the start of such opportunities.

Charles Ayiekoh, in the opposite dugout is optimistic of picking a decent result and says the camp is boosted by the return from injury of Allan Drajua and Ibrahim Kayiwa.

“We are set and the camp has been boosted by the return of Ibrahim Kayiwa and Drajua,” he said.

This season, we have agreed to make home a fortress and the worst we can get from the home games is a point.

Proline have no Sakka Mpiima (ankle), Bright Anukani (UCE), Ivan Bukenya (Hamstring) and Ibrahim Ssendi (Knee) for the game but on form Sula Matovu and Fahad Bayo are available for selection.

The visitors are unbeaten in the previous two league meetings drawing 2-2 in the corresponding fixture and won 1-0 at home.
