Express FC have the opportunity to pick up their first win at home in 2019 as they host Police FC at Betway Muteesa II Stadium Wankulukuku in the only game of the 2018/2019 StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Monday.
The six time league champions who sent tongues wagging in the just concluded transfer window kicked off the second round of the league with a loss away in Buhinga against Tooro United. This is something Kefa Kisala surely wants to work on by seeking a victory.
Striker Eric Kambale is out for three weeks with a hamstring injury, so new signing Brian Umony is expected to lead attack along with Tony Odur.
Midfielder Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye on loan from Vipers could also earn a run out hence provide more creativity along with Ibrahim Kayiwa with Badru Nsubuga sitting in the hole to protect the back four.
Express defender Arthur Kiggundu couldn’t be more ready stating that the team has corrected past mistakes and are ready to fight for three points.
“Football is a learning experience, we now know our mistakes after losing to Tooro away and we shall pick ourselves up,” Kiggundu told www.football-256.com, he also added. “We are at home and we shall use that advantage to win the game.”
Abdallah Mubiru’s charges meanwhile won’t stop conceding, the Kops have shipped in the most number of goals (30) in the league this season they have managed an impressive 25.
Express have scored 17 but its the same number of goals they have also conceded. After Police’s 4-1 loss at the hands of Nyamityobora last week in Lugogo, head coach Abdallah said he would be changing personnel.
Mubiru has signed for Proline defender Ivan Bukenya and former Express defender Edgar Bwogi, chances are high they will play at the heart of defense for the 2005 league winners.
Ashraf Mugume will be expected to lead the creative charge for the Kibuli based side, a win for Police would take them to fifth spot and will be four points clear of the Red Eagles who are ninth, on the same number of points like Police.
