KCCA could lose four games on the bounce for the first time in history if they fall to bitter rivals Express FC on Wednesday at Wankulukuku.

The 13-time champions head to Wankulukuku with three straight 2-1 losses to SC Villa, URA and Bul and face a side high on confidence and one of the three unbeaten sides in the division at the moment.

KCCA coach Mike Mutebi admits the Red Eagles have the advantage going into the game but demands his charges to react.

“They are coming off a big win against one of the big teams in URA and that gives them confidence,” Mutebi stated. “And again, they are playing at home,” he added.

“But we must react and start winning games although we are not desperate to deviate from playing our way.”

Wasswa Bbosa on the other hand is confident of getting his side can get all points.

Goalkeeping coach Daniel Kiwanuka and midfielder Muzamil Mutyaba were part of the successful KCCA team of the past five years but are now at Wankulukuku.

They left at a time when fans and the team needed them but not the technical staff and so have a point to prove on the day.

Key Stats

KCCA have won 7 of the past 15 meetings but only twice at Wankulukuku in the past eight visits. However, they have only lost once; 3-2 last season in those meetings.

Log Position

Express are 4th on the table with 12 points and a win could lift them to second on the table while KCCA are 9th with 9 points and victory could lift them to 5th.
