Sadolin Paints vs Kira Young
Bright Stars vs Rwenshama
SCVU vs Police
Simba vs Express
When SC Victoria University were beaten again last week by Express FC at Wankulukuku, officials and players at Police FC based club celebrated wildly what they called “winning the lottery” when the two meet today in Namboole.
Actually the Cops alongside Express both have a chance to end today top of the Uganda Premier League (UPL) table if they win their fixtures today with the Red Eagles visiting Army side, Simba in Bombo.
Ever since winning their opening game against Lweza F.C on the first day of the season, Morley Byekwaso’s SCVU has not won another, scoring just once in 5 games played so far. But Angelo Lonyesi’s Police are on a roll and all they have to do is pick maximum and they will move to 15 points and top of the log.
“SCVU is a big club who finished second last season but we are playing a better game this new term. There have been a lot of surprises in the league this season and we will have to be very focused,” Lonyesi tells Red Pepper Online.
In the other games on Tuesday, Paul Nkata’s Kira Young visits Musafiri Samadu’s Sadolin Paints at Bugembe Stadium. Sadolin Paints will miss their captain, Allan Oryek who has accumulated three yellow cards.
However, Sadolin will be welcoming back midfielder, Daniel Ekunyu who missed the team’s last game against Rwenshama due to accumulative cautions.
Elsewhere, Kawempe based side, Bright Stars back star midfielder Jimmy ‘Kachanga’ Kakooza as they host win-less Rwenshama Football club at Lugogo KCCA Stadium. Kakooza has missed two games for Bright Stars following his red card during the goal-less draw against Express on 8th October 2014 at Wankulukuku stadium.
The Kawempe team will welcome back winger cum striker, Hassan Kikoyo, who missed the 1 all draw against Police F.C due to accumulated cautions. However interim coach Paul Kiwanuka’s side will still be missing left back, Abubaker Tabula who picked a red card against Police football club.
