After dropping points at home against Maroons, KCCA have no space for errors when they visit Blacks Power at the Akibua stadium, Lira in Wednesday’s early kick off.
The Kasasiro lost top spot to rivals SC Villa and despite having three games in hand over the Jogoos, they must beat Hussein Mbalangu’s relegation fighting side to keep their favourite tag of lifting the crown.
In the draw with Maroons, they did start slow and were punished by a Fred Amaku header.
“We had problems against Maroons especially in the first half but we have ironed them out,” said Morley Byekwaso.
Muhammad Shaban is back after missing the draw with Maroons but Benjamin Ochan, Faisal Wabyona, Dominic Ayella and Filbert Obenchan are unavailable for the visitors.
In the reverse fixture at Lugogo, KCCA rallied from a goal down to beat Blacks Power 4-1 and a similar result will take them to within a point of Villa.
Blacks Power are 14th on the table with 15 points and understand that defeat will hinder their survival chances.
