Express FC are looking for a rare league double against KCCA FC and seek to become the first side this season to beat Mike Mutebi’s team home and away.
The Red Eagles edged the Kasasiro Boys in the first round game in style at Wankulukuku. They won 3-2 with goals from former KCCA player Michael Birungi, Eric Kambale and Disan Galiwango. Allan Kyambadde and Allan Okello scored for KCCA.
Coach George Ssimwogerere will be leading his charges to a very difficult stadium where the hosts have lost only a single game this entire campaign.
“It’s a big challenge but when two big teams meet each other very many things change so we hope they are very ready and we are very ready so the team which will follow their coaches’ instructions or follow their game plan will win the game.” said Ssimwogerere according to the Express fc website.
The hope of Express will be vested in Michael Birungi, Brian Umony and Disan Galiwango to look for the goals.
A win for KCCA may seal this season’s title at the StarTimes stadium in Lugogo with three games to go if Vipers falter against the Tax Collectors today at St. Mary’s stadium in Kitende.
