UPL: KCCA FC targets second win as they visit Arua Hill

KCCA FC visit Arua Hill SC on match day two of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League 2022/23 at Barifa Stadium, Arua.

The Kasasiro Boys were 3-2 winners against Wakiso Giants FC at MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo in the league opening fixture last weekend.

Arua Hill will be playing their first league game for the 2022/23 season.

According to KCCA FC manager Morley Byekwaso, their main objective is to register victory against Arua Hill on Saturday.

“We have tried to correct our mistakes from our previous fixture. We play a side that we beat at their home last season and we know we are the only league side that picked three points here,” Byekwaso said.

“They will want to hurt us but we are ready for them. We have a very strong side that will be able to compete against the hosts.”

“We will not have Saidi Mayanja who broke the team protocols and is serving a suspension for his indiscipline.”

“Julius Poloto and Iguma Denis picked knocks in training and did not travel. Emma Wasswa is on compassionate leave after losing his grandfather.”

“The rest of the players are fine but we could only travel with 20. We trust the 20 will ably represent us against Arua Hill SC,” he added.

Arua Hill finished fifth last term in their Uganda Premier League debut season and won 14 games, shared spoils ten times, and lost 6 league games last season.

KCCA FC was the only league side that picked three points at Barifa Stadium FC last season.

Hosts KCCA FC on the other hand will be hoping they can pick their second league win on the bounce against a tricky Arua Hill side that picked a point against the 13 times Uganda Premier League Champions in the reverse fixture last term.

KCCA FC and Arua Hill SC have met twice. Both times have been in the Uganda Premier League.

Hosts Arua Hill SC have never won a game against KCCA FC.

Both clubs have shared spoils once.

The fixture has produced one goal which came at Barifa Stadium FC last season. The goal was scored by Davis Kasirye who has since left KCCA FC.
