Kcca against bright stars that ended 0-0 last season

The 2018/19 StarTimes Uganda Premier League enters matchday four with five teams yet to lose a game this season.

Two of the unbeaten sides, KCCA and Bright Stars will face off at the StarTimes stadium in Lugogo with both sides seeking for a win to go top of the league table above Vipers. Both sides are tied on 7 points while leaders Vipers are on 9.

The hosts KCCA come into the game after breaking the Greenlight Stadium Jinx, beating Onduparaka 2-0 in Arua for the first time. Goals from Allan Okello and Timothy Awany were enough to sink the Caterpillars.

Former KCCA forward Nelson Senkatuka will have to be at his best if the Kawempe based side are to leave Lugogo with something in hand while Mutebi will hope Allan Okello, Patrick Kaddu and the returning Julius Poloto are in goal scoring mood.

Last season, this fixture ended in a goalless draw in a game that infuriated Mutebi to attack the opponents’ tactics.

In the other games, Express will hope to build on their impressive 3-1 win against Police last week when they host Bul in Wankulukuku.

The Red Eagles tactician, Kefa Kisala spent last season at Bul and left bitterly with rumours he was being undermined by his assistant Peter Onen who is now the Head Coach.

Kisala’s side will be seeking for a first home win with the help of Congolese import Eric Kambale who returns to the team to compliment forwards Tony Odur and Ibrahim Kayiwa.

Bul, who have won two games including a 3-0 win over newcomers Paidha Black Angels will rely on Hamis Tibita, Timothy Douglas Owori and Villa Oromchan.

Elsewhere, Onduparaka will travel to Jinja hoping to return to winning ways at The Mighty Arena against Kirinya Jinja SSS.

Kirinya are one of the unbeaten sides in the division so far and will also be keen to maintain their good start to the season.

Joel Madondo, the leading goal scorer with four in three games so far will be the main threat Onduparaka will have to deal with while Asaph Mwebaze’s side will rely on the enterprising Viane Sekajugo for goals.

New league entrants Paidha Black Angels will have to put their financial woes behind them when they host Tooro United (formerly called Soana) at the Green Light stadium, Arua.

Simon Sserunkuma and Allan Kayiwa will have to be clinical in front of goal for Tooro United side while experienced Yudah Mugalu will be the key man for Paidha.

The other four fixtures of matchday four will be played on Wednesday, 24th October.
