KCCA host on form Soltilo Bright Stars seeking victory to break away from fifth placed Police and also keep a respectable gap between them and leaders URA.
Morley Byekwaso’s men are coming off a slim but important 1-0 win over Onduparaka in Arua but in Bright Stars, they face arguably the most on form side in the division so far.
Baker Mbowa’s men have won four of their past league meetings with the only draw coming against leaders URA last weekend.
The Kasasiro have an opportunity to complete only the fourth double over their visitors who they beat 2-1 on the opening day of the season.
With the return of Juma Balinya, Byekwaso has plenty of options in attack with on form duo on Charles Lwanga and Sadat Anaku expected to create problems for the Stars’ backline but they must also be wary of the threat posed by their former centre forward Samuel Kayongo Ssekamatte.
A win for KCCA will lift their points tally to 40 and just seven behind leaders while Bright Stars will leapfrog SC Villa and UPDF to move sixth if they win.
Last season’s corresponding fixture ended in a 1-1 draw with Joseph Janjali’s goal cancelled out by Steven Sserwadda leveller – both games coming in the second half.
