The Eastern side is 11 on the table of 16 only three points above the relegation zone.
Kitara FC captain Maxwell Owachgiu believes there is room for improvement so they can still achieve their seasonal targets,
“This run we are going through is not good because we haven’t been able to score many goals or win on the road recently but we are all accountable and working hard to improve the performance.”
“The positive thing right now is that we are focused and still in a position where we can achieve our targets that we set from the start.”
He added as reported by the club website.
The Royals will be without Dudu Ramathan, Davis Ssali and Jamil Kiyimba due to injuries.
The first leg at Kigaya grounds in Hoima ended 3-1 in favour of Kitara.
