KCCA coach Morley Byekwaso is wary of experienced URA ahead of his side’s trip to the Arena of Visions, Ndejje on Tuesday.

URA could earn a third successive win over the Kasasiro and fourth in five games with maximum points after winning the reverse fixture 2-1 at Lugogo.

Then, Byekwaso was deputising Mike Mutebi who has since departed and the game proves the former’s biggest test so far since getting the top job.

Speaking ahead of the game, Byekwaso who has overseen three wins as many games in charge anticipates a tough clash against a very good experienced side with an equally experienced technical staff.

“URA is a very good side. They are experienced with experienced coaches as well,” said Byekwaso. “We are going to have big task to beat them although it’s our target but it will be a hard job,” he added.

They are physical, know how to possess the ball and know how to cross and attack crosses so we must be careful in all situations. And their experienced coaches can interpret situations and use them to their advantage.

Coming into the game, KCCA beat Bul 3-0 in their previous league outing while URA were beaten 3-1 by title rivals Express FC.

URA will be eager to seek redemption aware that victory will keep them at least joint top with Vipers who are at home to Busoga United on the same day.

Paul Mbowa returns for URA after missing the Express game through suspension while Hudu Mulikyi remains doubtful with an injury.

KCCA have no Gift Ali, John Revita, Brian Aheebwa and Juma Balinya for the clash and it also comes early for Lloro Mazengo who returned to training recently but lacks full fitness.

Key Players

Shafik Kagimu has a knack of scoring against the Kasasiro and remains a big threat along with Steven Mukwala and Cromwell Rwothomio.

For the visitors, its Charles Lwanga, Sadat Anaku and Bright Anukani that will be tasked to unlock the hosts defence.
