Twelve points separate table leaders KCCA FC and second last Police FC – which clearly shows the disparities between the two clubs.
Club deputy manager Morley Byekwaso says that the team will try not to let down the home crowd on Friday and they want to show the results of the week-long rigorous preps they have been having.
“The good thing this must win game comes at our home where we have not lost this season. We shall build on that confidence to win the game and stay at the summit of the league,” he said on Thursday morning.
Byekwaso and his boss Mike Mutebi are glad to be welcoming back defensive kingpins Timothy Awany and Martin Mpuuga although Lawrence Kasadha remains out.
“We have addressed the defensive dilemma that has cost us in the last two matches against Jinja SSS and Vipers and we are going to be a completely different side,” Byekwaso added.
Other first team players like Ivan Ntege, hakim Ssenkumba and Isaac Muleme are also available to add steel to the team ahead of the slippery Police test.
If we are to go by the last six league games against Police FC, in which we have won five times and drawn once, the odds are in our favour to win the match and stay top.
But, in veteran tactician Sam Timbe, Mutebi has an equal match which makes the game a must watch to for purists and all football lovers in the country.
