MUKURA Victory Sports will be looking to bounce back when they host AS Kigali Wednesday afternoon at Huye Stadium, starting at 3pm.

Tony Fernandez’s side lost 1-0 to APR in their last outing, while AS Kigali were humiliated by Police 3-0.

“We can’t afford to lose this game,” said Spain-born Fernandez, urging his players to use the home advantage in their favour against AS Kigali who have only won once after seven match rounds into the 2019/2020 Rwanda Premier League season.

AS Kigali will miss the service of Eric ‘Zidane’ Nsabimana who is suspended for match-day 8 with three yellow cards.

Ahead of the highly-charged match, Mukura are third with 14 points, while struggling AS Kigali lie in 12th position with 7 points.

Police go top

Meanwhile, Police FC have stormed the table summit with 18 points after overcoming Bugesera 2-1 on Wednesday.

Striker Justin Mico and winger Dominique Savio Nshuti scored to give the law enforcers a comfortable 2-0 lead before Djihad Rucogoza pulled one back at stoppage time.

Francis Haringingo’s side will be at the top at least until Friday when second-placed APR take on SC Kiyovu at Kigali Stadium. 

APR have 17 points from 7 matches.
