Mind games or not? With a highly anticipated clash between giants Express and KCCA at Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku, the hosts’ coach Matia Lule says his counterparts are under pressure.

The eleven time champions are favourites to land the league crown but with one win in just six games, the Kasasiro appear to be in self-destruction mode prompting Lule, whose side sit 5th and 8 points adrift to state they are under pressure.

“No doubt, it’s KCCA under pressure,” Lule reacted when asked whether his side are under pressure ahead of the Friday clash.

They are leaders and chasing the title. For us, we can only join the race with a win so we shall try to do that but not under pressure.

The Red Eagles are arguably the most on form side in the league so far with four wins in five and into the semis of the Uganda Cup and Lule, a former KCCA coach hopes that gives them edge in the derby.

The boys have been fantastic of late and we shall go out there and try to win the game.

The clash between the two sides at Wankulukuku has produced just one win in 13 games.

Overall, KCCA holds an edge since 2010/11 with 4 wins against Express’ 3 and the Kasasiro won the reverse fixture 3-1 at Lugogo.
