Uganda Cup: KCCA take CAF CC hangover to Tooro

KCCA FC will return to the local scene on Tuesday with a Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 32 clash against Tooro United in fort Portal.

The Uganda Cup holders were dumped out of the CAF Confederations cup on Sunday after failing to cover up their deficiencies in Congo where they lost 3-0 in the first leg against AS Otoho.

The Lugogo-based team won 2-0 courtesy of a Patrick Kaddu and Allan Okello strikes but lost out on the aggregate.

Coach Mike Mutebi has made two changes to their squad that featured against the Congolese slotting in defender Bernard Muwanga and Lawrence Bukenya for Filbert Obenchan and Mustafa Kizza.

In Tooro United, KCCA face a team they have beaten eight times in their twelve meetings. They have beaten the Western Uganda side in three and drawn the other of their last four visits.

However, they face a much-changed side that has won six and drawn two of their last eight games at their own back yard.

Their head coach Waswa Bbosa put in mind that home record that he is banking on to beat the holders.

“My players have made it a point that they must fight and win all the home games irrespective of the opponents we are facing. That is why we have got these results at home since we came here,” Bbosa said of the match.

The City Lads defeated their Tuesday’s opponent 2-1 in the league first round in September last year. They also eliminated Tooro United in the round of 16 of the same competition last season.
