PREVIEW: KCCA look to keep up winning ways as they host URA

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA FC) will host URA at the StarTimes stadium in Lugogo on Tuesday, February 26.

Timothy Awany's strike in the reverse fixture won it for KCCA and the Tax Collectors will be looking to bounce back.

The hosts dropped two points in their last game against Police and Mutebi expects a reaction from his players.

“It’s not going to be easy but I think there is going to be a reaction because we dropped points against Police,” said Mutebi.

“We have not lost at Lugogo and if they react well, we have all it takes to take three points."

URA is one of the sides with the meanest defences in the league and Mutebi is aware that his side must disintegrate what he called the very good organisation.

"They have the best defence and their approach is very defensive, rather organised and the onus is on us to try to disintegrate their organisation and break their lines."

His counterpart Sam Ssimbwa believes the win against Kirinya Jinja SS in their last outing could be a turning point in winning successive games.

After beating Kirinya Jinja SS, the players are motivated and it might be a turning a point in winning successive games,” he said before admitting the test against KCCA will be a tough one.

However, he isn’t worried of KCCA’s record at Lugogo where they are yet to lose a game since a shock 2-1 defeat to Proline last season.

He feels the boys are not intimidated playing away since almost all their games are away.

"It’s a tough game but for me, I don’t regard us as having a home ground. We don’t train at Namboole and in my opinion; all our games are almost away games."

KCCA have won 5 of the previous 11 league meetings and draw 3 and lost as many.

URA have not won against KCCA since December 2016 when they won 1-0.

KCCA could win three successive games against URA for the first time.
