Already promoted FUFA Big League side, Masavu Football Club travels to the land of oil in Hoima to play Airtel Kitara in one of their closing matches before the regular season climaxes.

This is the second last game for Masavu who were promoted to the Premier League with three games to go.

History making coach Allan Kabonge, like he did against Kireka United in their last away game is also expected to grant playing time to players who were not regular in the run up.

Kenneth Tumusiime, a center forward who has been on and off throughout the season will lead the line for the visitors alongside Peter Lumolo, Onesmas Andama, Charles Odeke, Saad Kibirango and Rashid ‘Katoito’ Kato.

“This fixture means sense to me. For me, every game I manage is important to my life. Even if we have already qualified, we shall give our best in the match,” Kabonge told Kawowo Sports.

Kabonge returns to the technical bench having cleared the Ug.shs 500,000 fine levied by FUFA for misconduct while in Masaka.

For the home side which held Masavu to a goal-less draw in Entebbe last December, they are ready to prove that the first round performance was not by surprise.

“We shall not give them breathing space. We want maximum points because we proved that in the first round,” Joshua Atugonza, the Airtel Kitara team manager said.

Julius Rulinda, Paul Lule, Pete Waswa and the talisman Billy Counsel  are sure cards for the home team.

Masavu has 47 points and target a maximum of 50 points at least by the close of business in the regular season with the last game coming against Water this Saturday at the Katabi playground.
