Prisons Grounds, Luzira

Saturday 13th May, 2023


It is derby day as third placed KCCA FC visit Express FC in Luzira Prisons knowing that a win takes them top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League with three games to play.

KCCA FC will be hoping to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to top placed Vipers in their previous game despite the latter having played a game more.

KCCA FC are third on the table and a win against Express FC in the Kampala derby gets them to 48 points from 25 games played.

Hosts Express lost 4-1 to 4th placed Arua Hill in their previous league game played in Arua.

If KCCA FC win over Express FC, they will go top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table.

On the other hand, if the hosts win the tie with a margin of three goals, they climb to 9th position and will share the same points with Wakiso Giants FC despite the latter having played a game more.

A draw will have KCCA FC move to second position and Express FC maintain its positions on the table.

The last time both sides met in the league earlier this season, KCCA FC won 3-0 at MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.


In the last 28 games between both sides, KCCA FC has won 11 games, Express FC has won 4.

Jackson Mayanja and Charles Ssenyange in training

We are geared up for the game and we are ready for the derby. We have emphasized it to the players this week that the remaining games will need more focus than before. We have prepared them mentally because such games require one to be switched on all the time. Kizza, Majwega and Ayella returned to full training this week but remain a doubt for the derby. We will assess them and see if they will be able to feature in the derby.
