Express’ only win in the 2018/2019 StarTimes Uganda Premier League under George Ssemwogerere came against Nyamityobora at Kakyeka Stadium.
While they still wait for that home win, the Red Eagles visit another relegation struggler in Ndejje Lion with home that they can pick another three points on the road and probably improve their position on the log too.
“I have seen them play against Police they are tall men and fight for the ball but they are not so comfortable with it and can make mistakes if we manage to press and put them under pressure,” Ssemwogerere told the club website.
Defender cum winger Disan Galiwango is optimistic the side that is yet to find a consistent rhythm will be able to come out on top especially since they Ndejje grounds is one of those that encourages expression.
“It won’t be hard, most cases the pitches make games difficult but the Ndejje pitch is good and we can get all three points from there so it won’t be hard,” Galiwango was quoted by the club’s website.
Ndejje are coming off a 4-3 win over Tooro United while Express need a late penalty by Tony Odur to force a draw against Maroons at the Betway Mutesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.
The hosts will rely much on the services of Noel Nasasira and Francis Onekalit especially in the hunt for goals. Onekalit scored a brace in the win against Tooro.
The Red Eagles will be without Eric Kambale who is still nursing a hamstring injury while Shafiq ‘Nana’ Kakeeto is expected to be available for selection after recovering.
When the two sides met at Wankulukuku, they played to a barren draw, the Red Eagles’ attack failing to break the resilient Ndejje defense then.
Ndejje Lions are 14th on the table with 16 points, they have only won four times, drawn four and lost 12 games in the run, and they have scored 16 goals and conceded 32 in return.
Express occupy 10th position after collecting 25 points, they have managed six wins, seven draws and seven losses, and they have scored 20 goals and conceded 21.
