KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi never shies away from serving it hot regarding the style of football his team plays.
The ‘Our Way’ coach has always appreciated people like Police coach Abdalluh Mubiru who have preached the same gospel.
When the two meet up on Friday evening in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League, it will be just like the old times. A case of the teacher taking on the student.
KCCA FC are looking at stretching their lead to eight points and it couldn’t be a better time having managed to score 17 goals in all competitions from their last five games.
Mike Mutyaba, Patrick Kaddu and a support cast have helped keep the team alive, which at least three months ago was struggling to find the back of the net.
“It’s going to be a good game, both teams play that brand of football punctuated with offensive play and it’s entertaining” a jovial Mutebi said in the prematch press conference.
For Police FC, the confidence is high having edged Kirinya Jinja SS 3-2 on Sunday.
Mubiru is hoping striker Johnson Odongo continues his scoring form with the support of Denis Nnyanzi, Ashiraf Mugume and Juma Balinya.
“We are coming to give our best against a team that is strong and well facilitated than we are. But we hope to give our all for the result,” Mubiru told www.football-256.com.
A win for six placed Police will guarantee them a top four spot at least until when URA play again.
It will be an emotional return for Livingstone Mbabazi as he leads Mbarara City against his former bosses Onduparaka FC at the Greenlight Stadium.
Both teams are tied on 23 points, Onduparaka occupying third place because of a slightly better goal difference.
Tooro United seem to be safe from relegation in 11th position, their opponent Ndejje Lions are far from wing safe.
With eight points, even maximum points picked from Buhinga won’t see them out of the red zone of the log.
