Uganda Premier League debutants Paidha Black Angels F.C will be out to play their fourth game of the season since being promoted to top flight football.
In their opening three games, the West Nile based outfit has managed one win (at their foster home in Arua to Police) as well as two losses on the road 2-0 to Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) and 3-0 to BUL at Namboole and Njeru respectively.
The Blacks, as they are christened takes on a wounded party in Tooro United who suffered a shocking 2-1 home loss to visiting BUL in their last game at Kavumba Recreational Stadium.
After falling 1-0 to KCCA in a match day one duel, Tooro United swiftly recovered to win 1-0 away to BUL at the FUFA Technical center in Njeru courtesy of Allan Kayiwa’s strike.
The two parties therefore, come to their respective fourth games of this campaign in the wake of defeats in the immediate past matches.
Paidha Black Angels’ head coach Muhammed Kiseeka would wish to engineer yet another home win after the Police heroics where Andrew Kidega (penalty) and Yudah Mugalu neutralized Ashraf Mugume’s earlier opener.
“We have some slight injuries to the players and in another instance licenses of some others have not been processed by the club management from FUFA. Otherwise, I expect a good fight from the players available” Kiseeka, who replaced Harunah Mawa noted.
Right back Cheka Sabiri picked a knock during the Sunday training session. Sula Sekamwa is still in Kampala but may make the trip, Jerry Adebu and Francis “Rasta” Bithum are injured as well while the licences of Brian Okumu and Bernard Agele are still being processed.
The main men therefore tasked to inspire Paidha Black Angels in this particular task will include Ceaser Olega, Julius Malingumu, Cromwel Rwothomio, Kidega, Mugalu, Jackson Nsubuga and goalkeeper John Kalumba.
Wasswa Bbosa’s Tooro United once again face a mountain task and will need to double their efforts as they recover from over 600KM road trip to Arua.
Bbosa is expected to ring changes from the side that fell at home to BUL since three of his players who played on Tuesday are injured.
Simon Sserunkuma and Godfrey Lwesibawa were left in Kampala nursing injuries, but, midfielder Steven Luswata fell sick in transit.
“We shall miss three of my key players but these other available players are ready for duty ahead of them. We need the maximum points because we cannot avoid to lose to a newly promoted side.” Bbosa disclosed to Kawowo Sports on the eve of the game.
Prolific Allan Kayiwa, Baker Buyala, captain Willy Kavuma, goalkeeper Joel Mutakubwa, defenders Ibrahim Ayub and Mike Kawooya are all ready for the best in Tooro United’s colours.
Although both clubs have three points apiece, Tooro United is 10th with a goal’s deficit and Paidha Black Angels is 12th having goal deficit of four.
