Vital crunch fixtures between fierce rivals come fast knocking to the extent that one team may not be adequately prepared for the game.
This, however, won’t be the case when The Saints F.C travel to Jinja town to face home side, Jinja Municipal council (JMC).
Both sides are geared up for the fixture whose winner will keep grip on the leadership mantle of the Rwenzori group of the FUFA Big league, as a slot for next season’s Uganda Premier League looms.
The biggest news coming up is the pending absence of The Saints F.C record signing, Kamada Ndiefi Ssebagala due to a nagging injury picked earlier.
The player, signed in the close season from Proline Soccer Academy has been an influential aspect in all the 4 games the Namboole based side has played and won majestically.
We shall miss Ssebagala but we have a pool of able players to choose from
club chairman, Johnson Musinguzi attests to Kawowo Sports in a phone interview.
Jinja Municipal Council, like The Saints F.C have won all their opening games of the season and will count on the home advantage at Kakindu for inspiration to guard against their enviable home record.
We respect our opponents but we shall go all out for a clear cut victory
Arthur Kyesimiire, JMC Coach tells Kawowo Sports.
Meanwhile, Hope Doves will entertain Baza Holdings at Namboole Stadium with high hopes the latter may stage a weakened squad as the majority of the latter’s senior players are in a silent sit down strike over nonpayments.
Unless the manager (Kamanzi) pays us, we shall not honour any other game
a Baza Holding player, who refused to be named for fear of sabotage confirmed to Kawowo Sports.
In the only Elgon group fixture on card, Kasese New Villa will play host to Busia United in Fort Portal.
