Relegation threatened Simba FC host Ntinda United as FUFA big league resumes today.
The home side won the reverse fixture 1-0 away at Kamwokya Kataka grounds but the visitors’ head coach Peter Musoke asserts that it’s time to pay back whether by hook or crook. He said;
” We are traveling to Gayaza for a win, nothing less than that come rain or shine. We lost to them at home in the first round so they must pay in equal measures”.
Simba FC are lugging in the 10th position in the Rwenzori group with only 19 points collected so far from 17 games while the visitors are in the 7th position with 23 points and have played 16 games.
The last game Simba FC hosted was a Uganda cup game in which they lost 2-1 to KCCA with team captain Robert Kimuli scoring the first goal of the game. In the Big league, they last hosted Kireka United in a game that ended 1-1.
Ntinda also lost their last game 2-0 to Water FC in their own backyard at Kamwokya Kataka grounds in the previous game.
Captain Robert Kimuli , defender Ismail Ayatu Ssempijja and winger Henry Mukwaya must be in their good form to help the home side secure the win that will help the leapfrog the relegation zone.
For the visitors, defender Nabbimba Musa , midfielder Ivan Kamoga and team lead scorer Raphael Winju must rise to the occasion to see their team gain the points which may see their them in the 4th position of the group for the first time in the season.
