Police Vs Onduparaka – Green Light stadium, Arua 4.30pm
Police FC resurgence comes under scrutiny at the intimidating Green Light stadium in Arua when they face wounded Onduparaka on Wednesday afternoon.
The cops go into the game on the back of a convincing 2-0 win over Proline that moved them top of the log with 7 points out of a possible ten.
Against the hosts, Police faces arguably their biggest test away from home but will take inspiration from the fact that they picked a point from the same ground last season.
Coach Abdallah Mubiru has consistently said his side is a work in progress despite an impressive display so far and will be eager to leave Onduparaka unscathed.
Speaking of the game, Mubiru has belief in his charges and hopes they replicate what has been happening in training.
“It’s a tough game like any other,” he said. “We have respect for our opponents but we target decent results from the game,” he added.
Leo Adraa hopes that his side forgets all that happened at Lugogo when they were outclassed in a 4-0 defeat by champions KCCA and has belief they focus remains.
“What happened at Lugogo is behind us,” he said. “The boys’ focus is picking up their first win at home to give the fans something to celebrate,” he added.
Onduparaka will look to experienced strikers Samson Ceaser Okhuti and Karim Ndugwa for goals as well as the lanky Alfred Leku as Gaddafi Gadinho, Gadafi Wahab and the exciting Living Kabon doing the creative roles.
The visitors are expected to make changes from the line up used in their previous two games with defenders Tayimour Kimera and Arafat Galiwango starting in the places of injured Steven Mugisha and sick Aggrey Madoi.
But the eyes will be Norman Ogik who scored a brace against Proline last week and midfield gems Albert Mugisa and Gift Ali.
The cops lost and drew once against the Caterpillars in their only two competitive meetings so far.
