Uganda Premier League (Saturday, 4th May 2019)

  • KCCA Vs Maroons
  • Lugogo (4 PM)

The 2018/19 Uganda Premier League will wind down on Saturday, 4th May 2019 with all the 16 clubs in action.

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) will lift their 13th title in as many years.

KCCA will climax the season with a home date against Maroons at the Star Times Stadium, Lugogo.

Addressing the media on Friday at the official pre-match press conference, KCCA manager Mike Mutebi expressed the need to finish the season on a high note with victory before the home fans.

Mutebi noted that he targets maximum points to make 66 points for the season, which is four shy of their earlier set target of 70 points.

At the start of the season, we had a target of 70 points. Winning our last game will take us to 66 points which is not bad either. So, we shall take the game against Maroons very serious.

Mutebi will dwell upon former Maroons talisman Patrick Henry Kaddu, Allan Okello, Allan Kyambadde, Muzamiru Mutyaba, goalkeepers Charles Lukwago, Jamil Malyamungu or Tom Ikara and a couple of young players who have graduated through the ranks for inspiration.

Long term absentees as Muwadda Mawejje, Mike Mutyaba, Bernard Muwanga, Julius Poloto, Fillbert Obenchan (all injuries) will all miss the game as well as midfielder Nicholas Kasozi who was red carded in the immediate past game away to Nyamityobora at the Kakyeka Stadium.
