The Caterpillars are a shadow of themselves at home with only 43 percent of the points collected coming from home games and 47 percent of the goals coming from home matches.
Financially the club has been facing it rough because ever since they lost their partnership, Onduparaka has seen most of their star players leave the club due to issues of unpaid salaries. The loss of this sponsorship has affected the club’s development and even though they signed a new 390 million sponsorship deal, Ondu had to deal with late release of that money by the sponsors.
They also lost their first team coach over personal reasons and during that period they went almost 5 games without a win. They have a new club sleeve sponsor and the team changed their recruitment policy to scouting only local players from the northern part of the region. They hope this will suffice when it comes to keeping them in the division this season.
The 8 : 0 loss to KCCA at Lugogo came as no surprise to many as the Philip Omondi stadium has been a nightmare to the boys from the northern part of the Nile ever since they got promoted from the Big League.
The caterpillars need to improve their first half performances to a level that matches those for the second half especially with the goals scored as this will improve their chances of winning games.
Furthermore, the caterpillars have lost all their games against the teams above them this season so far except for a 1-0 away win against UPDF on 16th February.
Final Report Comment: Staying up should be the only objective for Onduparaka this season. UGsports.net predicts a mid table finish for the caterpillars.
