Few matches to end the season and two big clubs in different views, Onduparaka in fan base, Express FC in accolades meet at the Greenlight Stadium on Friday to play for the second time in history. Last meeting between the two at Wankulukuku had no one emerge victorious as Toha Rashid Equalized in the second half to nullify Semazzi John’s first half 47th minute strike.
Both sides head for the meeting after experiencing disappointments in their recent fixtures where specifically Express unpredictably suffered a four-two defeat to Lweza FC meanwhile Onduparaka shamefully lost to Soana by two goals to one. Much Pressure has been put on the players by their fans to the extent that Onduparaka Arua fans demanded their Club PRO Otelul, Team Coach Mbabazi and Head Coach Adraa to exit due to the poor performance of the team.
Similarly Express fans showed disrespect to their players, a thing team Captain Sadam Juma felt sad of. Nevertheless, both team stand strong and ready to face each other as portrait by Toha Rashid in his Facebook page.
“…Let us remain united and finish the season the same way we started it. We know you have high expectations from the team but where we fail, please express yourself respectively. We hope to see you on Friday at Betway green light stadium.”
Although Express FC complaint of the state of Barifa Stadium, the training pitch offered for them in Arua. On their official Facebook page, this is what they posted;
“We are done with our last training but the state of the pitch where we did from is utterly wanting”
With the demand and expectation from The Red Eagles fans, relating the state of the training ground to poor result in case they lose won’t be an excuse fans from Wankulukuku will swallow. History records how giant teams don’t survive at the Greenlight Stadium, having in mind how desperate both Onduparaka and Express are, this isn’t a match to miss.
