Uganda Premier League
Proline FC vs Police FC
StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo
Tuesday, 28-01-2020 @4:30pm
Proline FC have been struggling at the foot of the Uganda Premier League for almost the entire season.
They are currently odds-on favourites for an instant return to the Big League unless things change for the better instantly.
Before a kick of the ball on Tuesday, Anthony Bongole’s side have 12 points fom 18 games and sit five clear points away from safety.
They have lost both of their last two league games as they were defeated 4-2 by Vipers SC before going down 3-0 at Express FC.
However, they did beat up on Katwe United in the Uganda Cup last week and will be hoping they can do like wise on Tuesday.
On match-day 19, they face a Police FC side that has been in good form since they turn of the year.
The Cops have won all their three league games, defeating Wakiso Giants FC, Express FC and Kyetume FC.
They however did falter last week in the Cup as they were eliminated by Admin FC.
With both sides playing similar brands of football and using the StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo as their home ground, this promises to be one hell of an encounter.
This will be the 14th meeting between the two sides since 2010.
In the past 13 meetings, Police have won four, Proline two while the other seven have all ended in draws.
Proline have won only one of their 7 home fixtures against Police FC (D3 L3).
At the start of this season, the two sides drew 1-1 while the reverse fixture last campaign saw Proline triumph 3-1.
Proline heads into the game having won just one of their last six league games (D1 L4).
At home, they have won three of their last six, losing the other three.
For Police, they are currently on a six game unbeaten run in the league (W5 D1).
Away from home, the Cops have won all of their past two games having lost all four prior.
