URA FC vs KCCA FC
Tuesday, 8th January
Mandela National Stadium, Namboole
Kick off : 4:00pm

URA FC have gone 17 matches without tasting league defeat as they play hosts to KCCA the same team that last handed defeat, a 7-2 drubbing at Lugogo last season.

KCCA are enjoying a fine form that has seen them win 7 of their last 8 games in the league and 10 in the last 11 in all competitions.

It will be an affair between the highest scoring team against the meanest defense in the league. KCCA have scored 33 goals so far while the tax collectors have only conceded four goals.

In the dug out, Sam Ssimbwa will be facing his former colleague Mike Mutebi having previously worked together at KCCA between 2015-16.

URA FC : DWWDD
KCCA FC : WWWWW

KCCA come into Tuesday’s clash after pummeling Police 6-3 while Ssimbwa’s charges played to a 1-1 draw at Kirinya Jinja SSS.

Mutebi already ruled out complacency however much his side has a continental fixture against Otoho D’Oyo in four days time.

” There is no experimenting here. We play every game as a big one and we try to perfect our playing style. So we come into this game to win.” Mutebi exclaimed.

” It’s good that we are winning because you can see all our players are in jovial moods though we must do away with complacency.”

URA have a lion’s share in the previous 16 meetings between the two sides winning 6 and drawing 5 times. KCCA have won on 5 occasions.

Mutebi is expected to look up to his free scoring offensive options which include Mike Mutyaba who has scored five goals in the last 3 games.

Said Kyeyune, Shafik Kagimu and goalkeeper James Alitho will have to be at their best again if at all the tax collectors are to prolong their unbeaten run to 18 matches.

Victory for URA can propel them to the third place on 24 points while KCCA can take their season tally to 37 points should they clinch maximum points.
