Uganda Premier League

Preview: Battle for Lugogo as Proline hosts KCCA


The Startimes Uganda Premier League first round of fixtures will climax on Tuesday, 3rd November 2019 with an interesting encounter between two Lugogo based sides, Proline FC and KCCA FC.

KCCA come into the game on 29 points having humilitated big rivals SC Villa 4-1 on Friday to move second on the standings.

The hosts, Proline FC still sit bottom of the log having garnered only 9 points from the possible 42 points in first round.

Speaking ahead of the match, KCCA FC head coach Mike Mutebi rallied upon his players to end the first round on a high by picking up maximum points in the encounter.

We want to end the first round on a high. The only way we can do that is picking maximum points against Proline FC. We face an enterprising side in Proline FC and we expect them to give us a run for their money.

Said Mutebi.

The win against SC Villa gave the team more confidence especially for the teenagers Kafumbe, Musa and Ssenyonjo. Playing a game that huge and delivering is a positive for me and them. I will keep handing the youngsters opportunity to play and showcase their ability.

Mutebi added.

The former Villa manager also believes there is still room for improvement for his players.

We are top of the scoring charts in the first round but i believe we can do better than that.
