The FUFA Big League 2021-2022 season continues with match day six games across the different venues in the country.

Table leaders Kataka make the long visit from Mbale to Masindi to face former Uganda Premier League side Kitara at the Masindi Municipal Stadium.

Currently on 10 points, Kataka will play their 5th game of the season in a largely competitive league where the second placed side, Maroons has 8 points from 5 matches (Maroons is away to Luweero United in Luweero on the same day).

Kataka is boosted by the return of Hassan Wandega who was red carded during the game against Proline.

He returns to form a formidable partnership with Tifu Kahandi in defence.

Other key players for the Mbale based club coached by Godfrey Awachango will include Nansur Nandala, Usama Khayemba, goalkeeper Edward Kasibante, Francis Odongo, Emmanuel “Messi” Mukisa, among others.

Perhaps, team captain Peter Lusumbula still misses because of a recovering nose.

Kataka’s vice chairman (administration) Hassan Kirunda Kakaire is also away in the Tanzanian city of Arusha for the 2021 East African Parliamentary Games on official FUFA duties.

Kitara will be without two players Denis Monday and Ivan Businge.

The duo was red carded during the 4-1 away loss to Proline at the MTN Stadium, Lugogo.

The last meeting between these two clubs was during the FUFA big league promotional playoffs in Njeru when Kataka lost 1-0 and Kitara qualified to the Uganda Premier League last season before being relegated in the same year.
