Uganda Premier League
Tooro United vs Maroons FC
Mutesa II Stadium Wankulukuku
Tooro united hope to bounce back to winning ways when they host Maroons FC in the Uganda Premier League at Wankulukuku on Tuesday.
Tooro have endured two consecutive losses, one against Vipers SC and Wakiso Giants respectively in their last two fixtures.
For Maroons FC, they have so far played two games, won against Kyetume Fc and lost to URA FC.
Speaking to the press after training assistant coach to Tooro Eric Ndifuna said the team has prepared well and because they have lost two games they badly need the three points at home.
“Maroons is a ball playing team and we lost to them at their home but defeated them in the reverse fixture last season. We are currently in need of the points; we lost two consecutive games, so we want these points so bad. Ndifuna said.
Tooro United will be missing the services of their defender Arthur Kiggundu, midfielder Steven Luswata due to injuries, and their head coach, Wasswa Bbosa who is still serving his three-match suspension.
Godfrey Lwesibawa and John Ssemazzi will be the players to watch for Tooro United.
Striker Rashid Agau scored the lone goal as they defeated Kyetume, and the striker is expected to play a key role for Maroons.
When the two sides last met in April, Maroons defeated Tooro 2-1 at the Prisons grounds. But worryingly, Maroons are not the best of visitors as they have lost four of their past five away games.
Maroons sit 13th on the log with three points while Tooro are 11th also with three points but with better goal difference.
