Arua Hill SC play Luzira outfit Maroons FC on Thursday 1st/04/2021 in what has been described as the battle for top place in FUFA Big League Elgon Group.
The Leopards travelled and camped in Kampala on Monday as they prepare for a game they consider so crucial in their effort to achieve the ultimate goal.
Arua Hill seated on top of Elgon Group with six points has registered wins in their first two games convincingly scoring six goals in total after beating Blacks Power 3-1 and Kataka FC 3-0 at Barifa.
Equally Maroons FC has registered wins in their first two fixtures after beating Paidha Black Angels 3-1 at Luzira and Gaddafi 2-0 at Bugembe but falls second on the log due to inferior goal difference.
The Arua Hill SC gaffer Hussein Mbalangu has said real competition begins with Maroons and anticipates an entertaining clash.
“The game is going to be fun and entertaining because the Maroons I know has a style of play, likewise us and we have a master plan to withstand them,” he said.
“I respect them, love to play against them and I get a feeling it is going to be a easier game for me tactically because playing a side that has a style is easier than a team that is hard to understand in sense of style.” He continued.
The two sides have only met twice in a competitive level in 2016/17 Big League season where Arua Hill SC lost in both fixtures, 2-1 at home and 5-2 away.
Mbalangu has said the history between the two sides does not discourage but instead is a motivating factor as he looks forward to rewriting a new story.
A win for Arua Hill SC will enable Mbalangu’s side to stamp themselves on top of the table as they’ll open a three point lead ahead of Maroons.
