Police FC Coach Abdallah Mubiru is wary of the hostile environment at Matugga when his side visits Bright Stars on league resumption this Tuesday.

Third placed Cops seek to keep pressure on the league leaders and will aim at not less than maximum points although Mubiru admits it will be tough at Matugga.

“I expect a very competitive game against a side with a decent home record,” he said. “Besides, it’s one of the most intimidating grounds and they will be buoyed by the home fans in the stands,” he added.

But the target is to pick maximum points and will surely play for that.

The hosts also target a return to winning ways after going three in a row without a win.

Paul Kiwanuka is expected to be in charge of the side since his head, Fred Kajoba has been away on national duty with the Cranes although both will be in the dugout.

No reported injuries from the hosts’ camp although it remains unclear whether striker Nelson Senkatuka will feature 24 hours later after arriving from CECAFA.

For Police, Denis Bigala, Basan Saafi and Juma Balinya are out through injury while Cranes duo of Aggrey Madoi and Hood Kaweesa remain doubtful for the game.

Key Stat:

The Previous Eight League meetings between the two sides have produced two wins for either and four stalemates.
