Despite the first home defeat this season, tactician Abdallah Munuru believes The Cops are ready for the battle.
“Today’s game is a tough one but the players are well set and ready for it. The team has a number of injuries but those available will deliver. The team is in good shape and ready for KCCA FC.”
• Striker Ben Ocen returns to the roster after a lengthy layoff and will be available for selection in the 18 squad team.
• However, Derrick Kakooza could not start after his overwhelming exploits in the just concluded U20 African Nations Cup tournament in Mauritania and could be rested.
• Samuel Kayongo, Fahad Kizito, left back Eric Senjobe and Bashir Kabuye are all on the sidelines nursing injuries while the rest of the squad will be available.
Police will heavily rely on midfielder and skipper Tonny Mawejje, Johnson Odong and Brian Muluuli in this battle for supremacy
