Busoga United will play hosts to Onduparaka at the FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru as Julius Mutyaba takes charge of his first game at new club, Onduparaka FC.
Onduparaka FC this week announced Julius Mutyaba as their new head coach, coming in to replace Viali Bainomugisha who left the club after just five games played in the first round, leaving the team under the management of former Vipers coach, Abu Wamboya.
Busoga United who have never picked a win against the caterpillars will have to pick themselves up considering their form after ending round one with a run of three consecutive wins to move out of the relegation zone and now sit in the 13th position on the log.
The caterpillars who failed to capitalize on the home advantage in the first round and only picked up two home wins managed to avoid defeat against Busoga United in the first round, picking up a 1-all draw as new recruit Shaka Ssozi gave the visitors a lead. Kabon Living secured a point for Onduparaka at home. The other four wins for Onduparaka have come away from home as they sit in the 8th position with 21 points.
Julius Mutyaba will have to rely on the on-form Rashid Okocha who has managed to score 8 goals in the first 15 games of round one, plus, the return of Gabriel Matata and Emmanuel Oketch from injury alongside Najib Tusaaba who has served his suspension. They will have to play a big role in squad depth. The caterpillars will be without injured Rashid Okocha and suspended Dennis Andama.
The eastern boys will be without goalkeeper Ali Kimera who has been out of the team training with personal issues and injured Sharif Kimbowa. The game will be broadcasted live on Sanyuka TV and fans will not be allowed in the stadium due to bleach of covid 19 SOPs.
