AUPL: History Backs Isabirye’s Kirinya Against KCCA FC

League leaders KCCA FC return from the international break with an away fixture against Kirinya Jinja SS FC on Tuesday at the Bugembe Stadium.

The Kasasiro boys went into the ten day break after a 2-1 loss to fellow favorites Vipers SC and are travelling to a team that has not won a single game neither have they lost at home recording four barren draws.

KCCA vs history
Coach Alex Isabirye goes into the game full of optimism for his first win at the school boys after picking a hard fought one all draw at Express at the beginning of the month. In fact the 13th minute goal scored by new signing Godfrey Mubiru was the first for the Isabirye’s charges after about 650 goalles minutes.

KCCA FC’s first loss was against another newcomer Onduparaka FC away in Arua. The caterpillars had just scored their first league goal at Wankulukuku against Express FC before hosting and defeating the defending champions in Arua.

Kirinya is another newcomer who scored the first goal away at Express FC in Wankulukuku and are hosting the Lugogo outfit. Coincidence?

The Jinja boys will miss the services of winger Musa Magumba who is still nursing an ankle injury but are likely to welcome back Mubiru after a late medical.

“KCCA FC is a big team and are the defending champions with quality and experienced players in nearly every department. but I have planned well for them and my players know well that these are the kind of games to prove a point,” Coach Isabirye said.

The soft spoken coach has a superior head to head record against KCCA FC during his coaching career at SC Victoria, URA and BUL FC. On top of that he has lost only one game to Coach Mike Mutebi.

KCCA FC will be without midfielder Timothy Awany, Hassan Waswa Dazo and Jackson Nunda but the rest of the squad are fit for the job though it may take late medicals to ascertain if Joseph Ochaya will feature after a heavy national duty in West Africa.

Assistant coach Morley Byekwaso is also well aware of the threat posed by Jinja teams at Bugembe and the type of surface but promises to use different approach.

“We know the ground may not be favourable for our style just like it was the case against Onduparaka but we plan to use a different approach in tomorrow’s game if the initial plan fails,” Byekwaso said
