Arua Hill SC purposes to maintain 100% home winning record plus an overall unbeaten run as they host Gaddafi FC in match day six of the StarTimes FUFA Big League at Barifa Play Grounds on Thursday 22nd/04/2021.
Out of the five league games, the Leopards have played three home games, and won 3-0 against Blacks Power, 3-1 against Kataka FC 1-0 against Calvary FC. They face 3rd place Gaddafi who edged Paidha Black Angels 1-0 at Bar Okoro in their last fixture.
Arua Hill SC have no serious injury news and are enhanced with the thought of including revitalized Rashid Agau and Baden Mujahid in tomorrow’s challenge.
Patrick Matovu remains unwell after pulling a hamstring last Sunday meanwhile Sabir Edema is improving health wise as he serves his sick leave.
Isaac Okello and Telvin Maina are out of the picture in the whole first round but club Head Coach Hussein Mbalangu who still has so much legs in his disposal to use while forecasting tough encounter in the forthcoming fixture is optimistic Gaddafi is tameable.
“We’re having another hard game tomorrow but I know we shall overcome it because we’re at home and we’re ready for any battle. We’ve corrected our mistake from the recent game and the last game with Calvary. I think it will be a very good game tomorrow,” Mbalangu told club media on Wednesday.
“So, it’s very good because they are competing, whenever there is competition in a team, it gives headache, it means the team is very good,” Mbalangu added.
“That’s what we need, that’s why you see us trying to shout in training, trying to make them to be in the same level. So, it is a very good thing to give us headache in selecting.
“We select according to what we are going to play, the team we’re going to play what does it need? Are they fighting? do they need people who are harder? that’s how we select. But I think we’re going to use players who have been playing the last two games.” He confirmed possible lineup.
Unlike previous home games where Arua Hill had a smooth cruise packed with goals, Hussein and Co fought hard to put down Calvary with 1-0 win at home a few days ago, Gaddafi FC could easily get persuasion and come all out to present similar challenge, but Hussein is offhand as he insists collecting maximum points from the Soldierz Boyz is more important than goals.
“I’m surprised with people, maybe they don’t understand football. Win is a win, we don’t want goal average, for us is the points. Even if you score a thousand goals, and you’re having less points, for us our aim is to get points. Then the goals will come,” Mbalangu said.
“For us a win is win even if we win 1-0, 2-1 as long as we’ve taken three points, the first thing is points. There is no any panic, there is no any problem winning 1-0. Who is leading? When we win 1-0 it means we’ll be 14 points then Gaddafi will be on nine. Even if they have a thousand goals, it won’t be helpful. Our aim is to win, win is the best.” He asserted.
Arua Hill SC are currently two points clear at the top of Elgon Group. A win against Gaddafi will permit them maintain the lead with 14 points.
