After ejecting Sudanese champions El Merreikh in the preliminary round of the lucrative CAF Champions League last weekend, coach George Nsimbe will hope that his boys get back to winning ways and improve their standing on the table.
“We need to get back and win after losing to El Merreikh on Saturday,” said Nsimbe, who added that he is using the match to try out certain things before the next Champions League tie away to Nkana Red Devils on March 1st.
The league’s leading scorer Tony Odur, who also netted twice in the two legs against El Merreikh, is expected to lead KCCA FC’s hunt for goals together with Herman Wasswa, while Brian Majwega and Tom Masiko do the spade work.
But CRO, who upset SC Villa in November last year, will hope that their lead striker Ivan Lubaale can find his scoring boots to help them jump off the bottom of the log. Victory for Nsimbe’s team will send them to third place behind Kiira Young and SC Vipers.
On Friday seven League games will take place, including SC Victoria University returning to local action against Proline FC. DR Congo’s CS Don Bosco ejected SC Victoria University from the CAF Confederation Cup.
