Rwenshama FC vs KCC FC – Ssaza Ground, Mityana
Kick Off: 4.30pm
Champions KCC FC return to league action this Tuesday at Ssaza ground Mityana against newcomers Rwenshama FC minus a number of key players out injured.
The Lugogo based who drew 1-1 with Police FC in their opening fixture have over nine members out of the tie something that has worried tactician George ‘Best’ Nsimbe.
“Almost half of the team is injured,” Nsimbe told Kawowo Sports. “It will be a tough game for us but our aim to get victory,” he added.
KCC FC will still be without new signings Brian Umony and Richard Kasagga while Yasin Mugabi and Owen Kasule are still serving a suspension imposed on them by the club.
In addition, midfielder Hakim Ssenkumba and centre back Ronnie Kisekka who all started in the previous game have also been ruled out.
Without Umony, Herman Wasswa who netted his 51st league goal last week is once again expected to lead the lead hunt for goals alongside William Wadri.
Habib Kavuma may partner Ayub Kizza at the heart of defence with Simon Namwanja featuring at left back.
KCC FC currently sit 12th on the 16 team log with a single point while Rwenshama FC is at the base of the table with no point but coach Shafik Bisaso; fresh from guiding Gomba to their third Masaza Cup title is confident the side will get to winning ways soon starting with a date against the champions.
“Our performances haven’t been poor but it’s the results that are yet to come,” Bisaso said. “Besides, the fitness levels of some our key players have been low but our season starts against KCC FC,” he assured.
Kiwanuka, Aloro turn guns against former employers:
Besides both sides seeking first season victory, Rwenshama FC will have former KCC FC players Rogers Aloro and Gaddafi Kiwanuka turn guns against them.
Kiwanuka was let go after demanding a salary increase to sign a new deal while Aloro was deemed surplus to requirements.
“Hopefully this will motivate them and play well. It sometimes gets emotional but I know they are professional enough to put up a good performance,” Bisaso said of the duo.
