Nsimbe is joining Azam as assistant coach after agreeing a two-year contract with the Tanzanian side and will obviously look to bow out on a high with his side currently fourth in the (UPL) table.

They have garnered just 17 points from eight games heading into this one. Their opponents, Kira, are 12th with nine.

Uganda Premier League (UPL) leaders Vipers will look to return to winning ways when they travel to Kavumba to face Police. Second-placed Villa away to Entebbe, the other of the day’s five fixtures, also promises entertainment as the Jogoos will want to keep breathing hard on Vipers’ nape.

Lweza welcome Bright Stars to Wankulukuku as Fred Kajoba continues to look for his first victory in three games as the visitors’ coach while Bul host bottom side Rwenshama at Kakindu in Jinja.

But the table leadership skirmish will be at Kavumba where Vipers meet Police and Nakivubo hosts Entebbe-Villa.

Unbeaten in eight games, Vipers – leading the log on 20 points – face a formidable Angelo Lonyesi Police side looking to maintain their one-point difference with Villa.

Coach Edward Golola’s men will also want to return to winning ways after the 2-2 draw with URA in their last outing.

Placed in seventh with just 13 points, Police – who started the campaign brightly – have been fluctuating lately and should provide a test to Vipers. Actually, they are winless in their last four games.

Sam Ssimbwa’s Villa know that any lapse and they could lose ground on Vipers, or allow KCC to overtake them.
