KCCA FC will be seeking revenge over Busoga United as both sides face off tonight at the MTN Omondi Stadium in Lugogo at 7pm.

Busoga United beat KCCA 2-1 in the reverse fixture at Njeru in a game that was played under the improvised dim lights following a delay in kick-off due to rain.

Emmanuel Ajo and Ronald Kasamba scored the two goals to claim a maiden victory for Busoga United after Dominic Ayella had given KCCA an early lead.

KCCA however are coming into today’s fixture with high spirits following a morale boosting 1-0 win against rivals Vipers at Kitende a fortnight ago.
