Arua Hill Sports Club welcome Kampala City Council Authority Football Club (KCCA FC) to Barifa stadium for Friday’s 3pm kick-off in the Startimes Uganda Premier League.

The Leopards will be looking to get points on the board following a 1-0 defeat to Gaddafi Football Club on Friday, 19th November at Gaddafi Arena.

The Opposition:

KCCA FC started the season well and will look to continue their sublime form against Arua Hill Sports Club who have never lost a home game this season.

Team News:

Ssempigi will be without Alfred Leku for the second consecutive game as he continues to serve his match ban following a red card he obtained during the 3-2 win against URA FC at Barifa stadium-Arua in November, 2, 2021.

The duo of Innocent Maduka and Ivan Eyam have been ruled out due to Avulsion fracture and Malaria respectively.

A shocking exclusion is regular figure Faizul Ibrahim Anini aka Terminator who has been sidelined due to accumulated yellow cards but the rest of the squads are available for selection.

HEAD COACH SADIQ SSEMPIGU :

“Ofcourse we have tried to look at why we couldn’t get results in the last previous games we didn’t play to our best so we have been working on some of the points which didn’t move well some of the sense of organisation are been calmed. so we have prepared to the best such that we get result tomorrow,”

“So we think it is a game which is very important to us everyone in the group is aware players and we hope to put a change, we hope to show reaction from the previous game,”

“I think the key factor could be togetherness, working as team all our trainings have been based on that, working as a team, working as a group to make sure everyone puts up the effort to win the game. We need every player to be at his best and we hope when we work as team I think we shall get a better result tomorrow.”

“We lost the game to Gadafi whereby we didn’t perform well everyone didn’t give in his best we think it’s a turn around it’s turn we want to make a real turn of the result cause we’re badly off we think that tomorrow’s game is very important when we pick maximum point.”

“We need maximum points tomorrow and everyone at the team is aware of that and everyone is ready to respond to that.”

Head Coach Sadiq Ssempigi.
