Express aim for double over Gaddafi FC

SINAN RAJUB SENOGA

Express FC and Gaddafi FC lock horns in the 2pm kick off of the match day 20 of the Uganda Premier League at the Gaddafi Arena in Jinja.

The Red Eagles want to complete a double over the Soldier Boyz having won the first round encounter 1-0 at Wankulukuku courtesy of Erick Kambale.

The encounter comes at the moment when Express haven’t won a game in the last five and will be aiming to return to winning ways. They are currently 6th with 30 points.

Their opponents and hosts Gaddafi are 8th with 25 points and come into the game after securing a point from a goalless draw against Onduparaka in Arua last week.

Express drew 2-2 with rivals KCCA in their most recent fixture on Saturday.

Gaddafi welcome back their skipper Andrew Waiswa as well as midfielder Umar Kyeyune from injury and suspension.

Jamaldin Buchochera and Faizal Muwawu remain out due to injuries.

Express will be without Martin Kizza while Nicholas Kasozi remains out after suffering a concussion.

Midfielders Ivan Mayanja and Faizal Ssekyanzi are also injured and out the contest.

James Odoch the interim coach at Express says his charges have prepared well enough to get maximum points.

“We’ve been working on a few corrections that we feel needed to be worked on from our 2-2 draw against KCCA FC, we respect Gaddafi FC but we’ve played them before and know what to expect so we feel we’ve prepared well and are ready to earn maximum points tomorrow”. Odoch said.

A win for Express will lift them a slot higher while any form of victory will automatically widen their gap from relegation.
