Saturday at Wankulukuku
KCCA vs Paidha Black Angels
League champions KCCA and Paidha Black Angels, runners-up in last season’s Uganda Cup, face off on Saturday in the Super Cup at Wankulukuku.
Both teams teams are expected to turn out with some new faces following transfer activity.
KCCA are expected to line up a number of new recruits, with striker Patrick Kaddu the standout.
The former Kira Young forward joined from newly promoted Maroons, where he top-scored with 16 goals in the second tier Big League.
Kaddu and Sadiq Abubaker will be tasked by coach Mike Mutebi to step up to the level created by Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Robert Sentongo, who departed after scoring 21 and seven goals respectively.
There is no mistaking this, however, as displacing Derrick Nsibambi. Mutebi has already made it clear the striker is their primary root to goal.
On their part, West Nile-based Big League side Paidha Black Angels, whose fairytale run in the Uganda Cup was ended by KCCA in a 2-0 defeat, are also rebuilding.
Some of their new faces include goalkeeper Emanuel Lubangakene and striker Fred Amaku, who played against them for Kirinya-Jinja with the two teams playing out a 1-all draw in a warm up game this week.
Former Onduparaka forward Caesar Olega and Andrew Kidega are the others.
KCCA are the holders of the Super Cup having defeated Vipers 1-0. Then, Sserunkuma headed home Joseph Ochaya’s cross. Both have since left the club to Zambia.
