Uganda Premier League
-Police FC vs URA FC
-Kyetume FC vs Busoga United
The Uganda Premier League will return on Tuesday afternoon with five games on the cards.
At FUFA Technical Center in Njeru, Police FC will be taking on URA FC.
The game will be the second on the day as the same venue will see Express take on Maroons FC earlier in the day.
The Cops are enduring a miserable season so far and are in desperate need for three points come match-time.
After registering their second victory of the season as they defeated Wakiso Giants 2-1 last Tuesday, the Cops then lost to Maroons FC last Saturday.
Such has been their season so far as they are yet to master a good run of results.
As a consequence, they sit second from bottom with just five points from their first 10 games.
For URA, they have also failed to hit the ground running so far.
After signing over 15 players in the summer transfer window, the Tax Collectors have somehow failed to live up to the hype.
They were expected to challenge for the League title this season but are instead struggling at the wrong end of the table as they sit 12th with 11 points, two away from the relegation zone.
URA have been dominant in this fixture having won four of the previous 7 meetings whilst losing just one.
Sam Simbwa’s side will head into the contest as slight favorites having won the reverse fixture last season 2-0.
At Bombo Barracks Grounds, Kyetume will entertain Busoga United.
Kyetume have been forced to search for an alternative venue as Mandela National Stadium is currently unavailable.
Having started fairly ok in their debut season, things have turned sore in the recent past for George Best Nsimbe’s side as they have lost all of their last two games.
They lost 2-1 at home to Vipers before BUL beat them 2-0 last Saturday.
The Slaughters come into the game having scored the least goals in the league this season (6). However, they do not concede that many and that is what makes them hard to beat.
Busoga on the other end will be fancying their chances of getting three points from the contest.
Abby Kikomeko’s side start the day in 6th having gathered 16 points so far.
However, their latest game ended in a 1-0 loss at home to Vipers SC, their only defeat in the last five games.
The two sides are facing off in the top flight for the first time in their history.
