The Saints FC Vs Onduparaka, Bombo

Onduparaka Captain Shaban Mohammed says he is relaxed over the Caterpillars’ away form ahead of their trip to The Saints on Saturday evening.
The West Nile Side go into the match at Bombo 5th on the table with 18 points from 12 games but are yet to win away from home in the Premier League this season.
“I do not think there is anything wrong with winning at home but I think it is in our hands, we can change that if we really work hard to earn our first away win today,” noted Shaban who alongside center back Rashid Toha were included by Uganda Cranes coach Milutin Micho Sredojevic on the 40 man team preparing for AFCON finals in Gabon early next year before he trims to the final 23.
“We need to improve on our mentality and attitude when playing away from home and I think this will be realized soon,” added Shaban who scored the only goal and his 7th of the campaign as Onduparaka dented SC Vipers title hopes with a 1-0 defeat at Betway Greenlight stadium.
Sabir Simba, Ceasor Okhuti and Gadafi Wahabu will not feature for the Visitors due to injury while Ceasor Olega did not also travel with the betway sponsored team to after death of his mother in law.
The Leo Adra side are yet to lose at home but will have to be at their best playing against a Moses Basena 10th placed The Saints that defeated JMC Hippos 1-0 away in the last fixture.
