Currently Kiboga Young lead the FUFA Big League Rwenzori Group on 20 points, they have won six of their eight outings and drawn just two.
If they maintain that run, they would gain direct promotion to the top tier league for the 2019/2020 season.
But that’s not their primary target, the newly promoted team from the Buganda Regional League want to avoid relegation according to their head coach Felix Kawooya Ssekabuuza.
“We are not under any sort of pressure to get promoted to the Uganda Premier League,” Ssekabuuza said.
“But, rather, we are first playing safe to see that we do not get relegated from the FUFA Big League. The club management, players and fans are all aware of that mission,” he added.
Kiboga are on an unbeaten streak in all matches played with their last outing against Proline ending 2-1 at StarTimes stadium on Thursday, December 27.
Their best performance to date remains the 4-0 home win against Kireka United.
However, the season is about to get interesting as the two newly promoted clubs (Kiboga and Dove) in the FUFA Big League will battle it out at Bamusussuta High School in Kiboga.
Kiboga will be without the services of defender Duncan Ssemakula through injury, however this will not discourage them as they have an equally strong squad to compete.
Defenders such as Zakayo Kizito, Fred Juuko, Jonathan Muteesa, Abasi Kateregga and Arafat Aganda have been tipped as a strong combination to sink their opponents.
Forwards Otto and Peter Lumoro (formerly at Masavu FC), both with four goals to their name will look to lead the attack line against Mark Twinamatisko’s charges.
