April 2014, kick-off at 16h30.

URA played to just their best scoreline of the second round of the season when they won 4-0 away to CRO Mbale in their last outing.

The Buikwe giants have claimed 24 points from their 14 away matches so far this season.

Their remaining league opponents are Kiira Young (home) and BUL (home).

The tax collectors are placed fourth on the FSL log with 49 points from 27 matches.

KCCA suffered a fourth defeat of the league when they were beaten 3-2 at home by Express FC on April 22 but rebounded to see off struggling neighbours Proline FC 4-0 on Friday.

The Lugogo side has claimed 25 points from their 12 home matches so far this season.

Their remaining league opponents are BUL FC (away) and SC Villa (home).

The Kasasiro Boys are placed top on the log with 52 points from 26 matches.

In head-to-head stats, lost to KCCA 2-3 at home November last year.

Elsewhere, second placed Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU), held goal-less last week by army side, Simba travels to Kavumba recreational stadium to play Police football club, currently lying 9th on the log (with 35 points).

SCVU is likely to name a strong team with defender Savio Kabugo, Dennis Iguma and Mathew Odong returning from injury.
Perennial mid-table team Police coached by Angelo Lonyesi is confident of another home victory following that 3- 2 result against Entebbe in the last game.

Equally so, the relegation race gets stiffer each passing day as the season comes to a close.
With bottom placed CRO virtually having sealed a berth in next season’s FUFA Big league, two more teams are severely fighting to keep in the top flight league.

Masaka L.C (20), Proline (21), Entebbe (23), Bright Stars (27) and Simba (27) are the teams still engaged in the mathematics against relegation with 3 games to play.

Masaka Local Council welcoming back team skipper, Ronald Lukungu faces an acid test with a date against an on form Express football club at Wankulukuku stadium, that has won 5 successive games.

Livingstone Mbabazi coached Bright Stars, 0 – 1 losers to Express in the last game hosts Entebbe another side that lost their last game 2–3 against Police at Kavumba last Friday.

16 time record league record champions, SC Villa coached by Steven Bogere travels to the Mbale Municipal stadium to face a dejected CRO, who lost 0–4 to URA last Friday on the same venue.

SC Villa will bank on the form of striker Victor Emanayo, Karim Ndugwa and team skipper Ronald Muganga.

With the going getting tough both at the top and at the opposite end of the table, expect drama, tears and smiles.
